Talk about an action-packed quarter - and six 3-pointers no less.

If you are a St. John-Hudson fan and missed last night's second round game playing the Larned Indians at St. John's Lions Mid-Winter Classic, you really missed out on sometime special as the Tigers easily defeated the Indians 68-40.

Two St. John seniors burned the net from outside, with big boy Dean Wade canning three 3-pointers (yes, three of them) in the first quarter. And Zuriel Reyes's two 3-pointers weren't too shabby either. St. John junior Gera Calleros also made a 3-pointer.

In all, the Tigers wound up with 34 points, holding the Indians to just seven points - St. John leading by 27 points at the end of the first quarter.

Scoring for the Tigers were Wade with 13 points, Reyes with 12, Jesus Alvarez 4 and Trey Nelson with 2 points.

When Wade was on the bench taking a breather during the second quarter, Reyes took over and found the open outside shots, making his 3rd and 4th 3-pointers for the half (He had nine points for the quarter.). Wade's only basket came from his moving around underneath in heavy traffic for the dunk. St. John sophomore Jacob Milton also made a basket.

Going into the second half had the Tigers leading the Indians 47-19.

St. John's head coach Clint Kinnamon substituted freely in the third quarter with his second string playing during the last half of the quarter.

This time it was St. John's Nathan Ward hitting a 3-pointer, one from the left corner - St. John's 9th 3-pointer and last for the game. Wade hit his 17th and 19th point early on before retiring to the bench, but not before Milton made a nice power basket underneath after a good feed from Wade. Milton also made St. John's second free throw in the first three quarters.

With the exception of Jorge Calleros and Ward who each made a basket, all of the Tigers scoring came from foul shots in the fourth quarter, the Tigers going 7/9 from the line and getting a 68-40 win.

Scoring for St. John: Reyes 21, Wade 19, Milton 8, Ward 5, Alvarez 4, Jorge Calleros 4, Gera Caleros 3, Nelson 2, Crockett 2.

St. John's second team, with the exception of one starter started out the quarter with Kinnamon clearing his bench during the last few minutes.

Free throws made: 9/16 for 56.25 percent - Milton 4/6, Jorge Calleros 2/2, Jeremy Crockett 2/3, Reyes 1/2.

Three point goals: 9 (Reyes 4, Wade 3, Gera Calleros 1, Ward 1).

The #1 ranked Tigers advance on to the Mid-Winter Classic's championship finals tonight against the #2 ranked Central Plains Oilers. The Tigers are undefeated (12-0) while the Oilers only loss is to the Tigers in the second game of the season played a St. John.
