LAKEWOOD - Speed spurred Kennedy Catholic to a 60-41 destruction of Auburn Mountainview in a loser-out game of the 2015 West Central/Southwest bi-district boys basketball tournament on Thurs., Feb. 17, on the court at Clover Park High School to earn a Feb. 21 winner to state regionals, loser-out match up against Peninsula.
"We executed better in the second half," said Lancer head coach Don Hoffman. "We attacked the basket, got to the rim more and were quicker."
Auburn Mountainview shot well to take a 12-4 lead in the first quarter, but, beginning with Michael Sasonoff's quarter ending 3-pointer, and concluding with five straight points by A.J. McGrew to open the second quarter, the running Lancers tied the score at 12-all.
Scrapping evenly, the teams fought on until James Jolly's driving basket sent Kennedy into the intermission with a 20-18 lead.More ›
