    Levi Knutson Starring in Germany

    Here is a link for a little update on Levi ... He is leading his team in scoring.

    http://www.eurobasket.com/Germany/basketball-League-ProA.asp

    ... and an excerpt from an article that his Dad shared with me about a recent game in which he led a comeback victory.

    [FONT=&amp]"The game seemed to be slipping away at the beginning of the second half as they fell behind 35:45 to the guests. A few minutes later it seemed that the lead was too much to overcome down 55:44 which was the games biggedt lead. Then, just in time, Knutson and Virgil Matthews took the helm and brought the NINERS back again to a 55:60 deficit. By now the audience had come up to operating temperature and transformed the venue for the infamous "Hartmann-hell". But the comeback stalled as Chemnitz meantime several minutes scored no points and was thus behind down the stretch 61:68. "The fans were awesome! They have never gave up on us and we didn’t give up either," Knutson said about the more than motivating interaction between fans and players. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]The smart US-Boy (Knutson) ultimately succeeded in perhaps the decisive action of the game: With just under two minutes remaining time and five points behind, Levi brought the NINERS back after a steal leading to a 3-on-1 Fast Break with Knutson getting a layup after a fine pass from Matthews. But the sniper wanted more, Knutson caught the ball, takes a step back behind the three-point line, and then sending the leather cold to pull within 2 points at 66:68! A little later forced A turnover by somewhat hapless acting Walter Simon causing the first extension/OT (70:70)."[/FONT]

    Still miss this kid ... one of my favorite all time Buff Basketball Players.
