Cavs Conclude FAC Slate With Win at Jackson

Chillicothe traveled to Jackson and survived a physical grind it out 41-33 win over the Ironmen to finish the FAC (9-1).

The Cavaliers, who had already clinched the FAC championship, faced a cold shooting first half, and a physical Jackson defense in leading just 14-13 at halftime.

Jackson made a run in the final quarter cutting the lead to two. The Cavs answered with only one bucket but hit 10 final period foul shots to pull out the win. Maughmer was 8 of 10 from the line in the fourth quarter.
