Boys' Basketball: Kinnick looks to continue strong start with visit to Edgren
They’re 6-0 thus far this season, a sharp departure from the Nile C. Kinnick boys basketball team that a season ago went 17-20 overall.
Eight players have reached double figures in a game this season, with Davion Roberts averaging 14 points per game, Gage Henderson 12.8, Aaron Peterson 11 and Kedrick Stockman 10.8. The Red Devils are the first team to top 100 points in a game, doing so in a 102-40 victory last Tuesday over Christian Academy Japan.
What has sparked the turnaround?
“These boys have been together for a long time and their hard work is starting to show,” coach Robert Stovall said of a group whose core players matriculated in youth activities ball during their elementary- and middle-school years and are now on the Kinnick varsity.
