Kats put away AHS boys early

KOKOMO — Kokomo put Anderson in an early hole and kept the Indians at bay the rest of the way in posting a 68-48 win in North Central Conference boys basketball action Friday night at Memorial Gym.

The Wildkats (7-6, 1-2 NCC) jumped to a 7-0 advantage and went on to lead 13-3 at the close of the opening quarter thanks in large part to a 9-0 edge in points off turnovers.

The Kats surged to a 27-4 lead midway through the second quarter. The Indians’ offense finally came to life, but they came no closer than 15 the rest of the half. Kokomo led 36-19 at halftime.

The Indians (6-8, 1-3) closed to within 14 (44-30) with 2:00 left in the third quarter, but the Kats followed with a 10-0 run to put the game away.

The Indians shot just 30.8 percent from the field. Kenya Williams scored a team-high 13 points, but was knocked from the game midway through the final quarter when he suffered a cut above his right eye.

Kokomo guard Mykal Cox scored a game-high 17 points and fellow Kat guard Tayler Persons added 16. Persons was making his season debut following an ACL injury that he suffered during the football season.

Anderson’s next action will be next Friday when the Tribe visits Richmond for another NCC clash.
