     St. John-Hudson's boys basketball coach Clint Kinnamon has been stressing the importance to his team about having a complete game this year, and his boys came close to giving him his wish Tuesday night at Kinsley as the Tigers took on the Kinsley Coyotes and came home with a 83-27 win.
While the percentages could have been higher, the Tigers consistent play came through, even when St. John's second and third strings took over during the second half.
The Tigers came up against a short but quick Kinsley team starting out, a team that set a lot of screens to get their men open, especially the right side open for the long shot. The Tigers adjusted after a few minutes, setting up their trap fast enough to mostly close down that scoring avenue for the Coyotes.
Three Tigers did all the scoring in the first quarter with St. John's Zuriel Reyes making two 3-pointers from the next county and two more baskets, followed by 6' 9” Dean Wade making four baskets (two of them dunks) and a free throw. Gera Calleros made the other basket, the score at the end of one period with the Tigers leading 23-11.
The scoring was spread out more in the second quarter with Kade Kinnamon's two 3-pointers, a basket and a free throw. Following close behind was Reyes with three baskets and Wade's basket and three free throws. Jesus Alvarez made two baskets along with Jacob Milton and Gera Calleros who each made one basket.
It was obvious from the sidelines that Kinnamon was very pleased with his team's over-all efforts, especially with their defense for allowing the Coyotes just four points for the quarter.
There were several blocks during the half, the Tigers leading 51-15 at the half.
Wade had a strong performance in the third quarter making six baskets underneath, two of them dunks. He also made a free throw. Milton made a 3-pointer at the top of the key, a basket and a free throw. St. John freshman Cole Kinnamon made a 3-pointer and Nathan Ward and Alvarez each made a basket.
With 3:30 left on the clock, Kinnamon brought in his second string.
The score after three quarters had St. John leading 77-20.
Starting with a running clock, Milton made a basket along with Cole Kinnamon and Alexis Valenzuela each making two free throws.
With four minutes to play, Kinnamon brought in his third string for the rest of the way, the Tigers winning 83-27.
According to Maxpreps, Wade had 29 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and six steals in only 14:15 minutes of play. He also shot 80 percent from the field and had five dunks, one of them a hard slam straight down.
Scoring for St. John: Wade 29, Reyes 16, Milton 10, Kade Kinnamon 9, Alvarez 6, Cole Kinnamon 5, Gera Calleros 4, Ward 2, Valenzuela 2.
Free throws made: 11/15 for 73 percent – Wade 5/5, Cole Kinnamon 2/2, Valenzuela 2/2, Milton 1/1, Kade Kinnamon 1/2.
Three point goals made: 6 (K. Kinnamon 2, Reyes 2, C. Kinnamon 1, Milton 1).
Turnovers: nine. Steals: 20, Assists 21, Blocks: 5, Offensive rebounds 16, Defensive rebounds 15.
St. John only had nine fouls for the game.
The Tigers will be playing Ness City on Friday at Ness. Games start at 5 pm.
