HS boys' basketball wins one game and loses one game at Yokota

The high school boys' basketball teams played two games at Yokota on Saturday to open their league campaigns. Varsity won 62-32, moving its record to 3-2, and JV lost 76-37 in its first game overall.

Coach Steve Hall was pleased with the varsity's overall performance in a resounding victory.

"The team started the game well both offensively and defensively," Hall said. "Defensively, they were able to create turnovers from the press, and they also limited Yokota from getting many good scoring opportunities. Offensively, they got off to a hot shooting start, hitting several outside shots in addition to several shots inside the key. CAJ pretty much dominated the game from start to finish."

CAJ got most of its scoring from Kyle (22 points), Enosh (18 points) and Ty (17 points, including five three-pointers).

Hall gave the following comments on the JV game:

"The guys got off to a great start, making shots to keep the game close. However, giving up too many offensive rebounds and having too many live-ball turnovers allowed Yokota to score too many easy baskets. The team picked up the intensity again in the fourth quarter even though the game was out of reach."

Satvik led the JV with 21 points. Ken (seven points), Sho (five points) and Taiyo (four points) also contributed to the scoring effort.

The Knights will play their next games at home against St. Mary's on Friday evening.
