Tigers guaranteed third place at Havasu Invitational

KINGMAN - After playing eight games in two days through the mid-afternoon Saturday, the Kingman Academy boys basketball team still faced the possibility of three more games if the Tigers were to win the Havasu Classic.

Kignman Academy (5-3 tournament record) reached the third-place game at deadline. The Tigers faced Lake Havasu with the winner moving on to the championship round against Las Vegas Agassi Prep. The Kingman Academy-Lake Havasu winner would have had to beat the Vegas school twice to claim the title.

The Tigers met Kingman three times in the tournament, beating the Bulldogs all three games. The last victory eliminated Kingman (3-4), and the Bulldogs finished fourth in the seven-team tournament.

"When you play seven games in two days, you get tired," said KHS coach Ron Anthony. "We had fun and we got better. The kids got a lot of playing time."

If facing each other three times in two days wasn't enough, Kingman Academy and Kingman square off at 7 p.m. Tuesday at KHS.

Lee Williams had the toughest time at the tournament. On Friday, the Volunteers went 0-4 with losses to Agassi Prep (60-11), Havasu (44-23), River Valley (39-27), and the Kingman loss. Lee Williams was the first team to be eliminated Saturday. The Volunteers opened bracket play with a 45-13 loss to River Valley. Parker then dismissed Lee Williams (0-6) by handing the Volunteers their second loss, 42-23.

"We can't score the ball," said LWHS coach Ray Smith. "The big disappointment was that we didn't play good help-defense."
