Kepley led Monticello with 17 points, five rebounds and three assists.


Gynalick's 12 points off the bench were a career high.

Monticello held the points in the paint advantage 40-30 and each squad made four 3s.


Marshall moves to 14-1 overall while Monticello drops to 7-5.


The Sages hit the road Tuesday night to take on Teutopolis at 7 pm. Hear the action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
