FREDERICK, Maryland – FCC freshman Christian Knox was on fire from the field as he tallied 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting to lead the Cougars to a 98-84 victory over Harford Community College on Wednesday night in MD JUCO conference play. With the win, the Cougars snap a five game skid and sport an overall record of 8-13 (4-3 MD JUCO). The Fighting Owls fall to 6-18 (2-8 MD JUCO) on the season.
