HS boys' basketball gets one win and one loss against Kinnick

The high school boys' basketball teams played two games at home against Kinnick on Thursday. Varsity won 74-56 and JV lost 63-62.

Coach Steve Hall was pleased with how the varsity asserted itself in the win:

"We played a very good first quarter, getting out to a 25-11 lead. We pushed the ball ahead well and were able to score in transition. The closest Kinnick got was, I believe, eight points."

CAJ was led in scoring by Koji with 23 points, followed by Enosh with 16 points and Kyle with 12.

JV coach Charles Smoker said the team played its best first quarter of the year and was up at halftime before Kinnick came out with a lot of determination and regained the lead in the third quarter.

"At one point, Kinnick was ahead by eight points, but we never gave up," Smoker said. "In fact, we were still down by five points with two minutes to go. We kept hanging in there and chipping away at the lead, but we couldn't quite regain the lead.

In spite of some guys being in foul trouble and two guys fouling out, we never gave up. It was a tough loss, but a game where we began to play to our potential, gel as a team and see the fruits of our labor. It was a thrilling game to watch."

CAJ's scoring leaders were Satvik (18 points), Sho (16 points), Kenshin (12 points) and Lukas (eight points).

The teams' Kanto Plains records are now 2-1 (varsity) and 0-3 (JV).
