Armor comeback fails but Dennis Horner again plays well

Chris Marion Photography

The Erie BayHawks, the Knicks D-League affiliate, led by as many as 24 Thursday, but the Springfield Armor (6-16), led by former New Jersey Net Dennis Horner, cut the lead to one before falling 100-94 Thursday night in Erie.

Horner, the 6'9" stretch four from Linwood, NJ, had another strong game, finishing with a double-double of 26 points and 11 rebounds. Jeff Foote, who played with New Orleans two years ago, also put together a double-double with 10 points and a season-high 15 boards. Horner, 25, is averaging 14.6 points per game along with 5.3 rebounds.  He, along with Darius Johnson-Odom, Willie Reed and Adonis Thomas are considered the Armor's top recruits.

Thomas and DJO had tough shooting nights early on. Thomas  finished with 17 points, Johnson-Odom with 16.  Thomas shot 6-of-21 and Johnson-Odom only slightly better at 8-of-21. Thomas did play better in the second half as the Armor came back. Reed was excused as he and his wife awaited the birth of their first child.
