Chicago Marshall took some jabs at the end, but they couldn't dodge several knockout punches from Richwoods senior Tony Frazier.

Frazier had 22 points and 14 rebounds to lead Richwoods to a 67-61 win over Marshall in the Class 3A semifinal game at Carver Arena Friday. He also caused three Marsahll charging fouls.

"I practice taking charges, so I know how to get in the right spot," Frazier said.

Seniors T.J. Cole (12 points), Tylon Deal (14 points) and Mason Alwan (12 points) also scored in double figures for the Knights, who improved their record to 30-2.

"These seniors don't want their season to end, or their career here to end," said Richwoods coach Mike Ellis. "They handled Marshall's pressure really well. That takes poise."
