Overcoming a ten point second quarter comeback by the Macksville Mustangs, the St. John-Hudson Tiger men coasted to a 67-34 victory over the Mustangs this afternoon in the second round of Larned's Keady Basketball Classic, and advanced the Tigers to Saturday's finals at Larned's Middle School, the game starting at 8 pm.
It might have been Friday the 13th, but it certainly didn't seem that way for St. John, coming out of the gate with Dean Wade making the first basket, then the Tigers made 19 more points, 12 of them by senior Kade Kinnamon who canned four straight 3-pointers, the Tigers going into the second quarter leading 21-7.
St. John did score 23 more in the second quarter, but not before the Mustangs narrowed St. John's 21 point lead to 11 points midway through. Taking a timeout with the score 37-26, the Tigers regrouped and started making up lost points with Kade Kinnamon getting his fifth 3-pointer and Jacob Milton his first, the Tigers leading 44-26 at the half.
The third quarter was one of spectacular plays, starting out with Kade Kinnamon's alley oop - a high, hard pass to Wade for the dunk. St. John's Zuriel Reyes caught up to a long down-court pass in full stride, barely getting control almost underneath the basket and somehow making a contorted layup. Wade tried his hand going for the assist by using a behind-the-back pass to one of his teammates going straight towards the basket in the paint.
After three quarters, the Tigers had the lead 61-30.
With a running clock and with Matt Wards two baskets and Jacob Milton's one basket, the Tigers advance to the finals, winning the game 67-34.
Leading scorer for St. John was Kade Kinnamon with 25 points,Wade 14, Milton 8, Reyes 8, Ward 4, Gera Calleros 3, Jorge Calleros 3, Trey Nelson 2.
Free Throws made: 6/15 for 40 percent. Wade 2/4, Kade Kinnamon 2/4, Gera Calleros 1/2, Jorge Calleros 1/2.
Three point goals: 5 (Kade Kinnamon 5, Milton 2.)
Wade had two dunks.
The Macksville boys will play in the third place finals at 4 pm. in Larned's Middle School.
In a second round consolation game, the St. John-Hudson Lady Tigers defeated Macksville's Lady Stangs 45-19 Thursday afternoon at Larned's Middle School, the win moving the Tigers into the fifth place finals to be held at Larned's High School gym this Saturday, the game starting at 6 pm.
Six Tigers scored in the first quarter with Alexis Witt leading the way with four baskets and one free throw, the score after one quarter St. John 20 - Macksville 11.
Witt, Tara Christie and Teresa Christie did all the scoring in the second quarter – Witt with three baskets, Tara Christie and Teresa Christie both making two baskets and a free throw, the Lady Tigers leading 36-16 at the half.
Witt added four more points to her total in the third period, freshman Bailey Burns added two baskets and Ash Fisher a free throw, St. John out-scoring Macksville 9-3 and going into the final quarter ahead 45-19.
