The Kingman High boys basketball team returned home Tuesday night against Lake Havasu looking to snap a two-game skid.

Led by Nick Dellacioppa's 17 points and Jerron Anthony's double double of 13 points and 11 rebounds, the Bulldogs did just that with a 55-40 win.

"It was a good win tonight for us. We needed a good solid win and I think we got that," said KHS coach Ron Anthony.

Kingman took a 17-8 lead after the first quarter and led 29-15 at halftime before going up 44-23 heading into the fourth quarter.

Tuesday's win also closed out the first half of the season, a season that sees KHS sitting at 4-7. Despite the record, Anthony is pleased with his team's performance and is optimistic about the second half.

"We are still working on some things," Anthony said. "Am I happy with where we are at? No. There are a couple of games that I thought we should've won that we didn't. I think we should be about .500 right about now. But we've played some really good Phoenix schools."

One of those schools KHS recently played was Avondale Westview (11-2), who beat the Bulldogs 59-52 on Dec. 11. Despite the score, Anthony was proud that his team held one of the top teams in Division I to just nine points in the third quarter while scoring 26 points.

"We didn't turn the ball over like we normally do against Westview, and they are a good pressing team," Anthony said. "We got down early and fought back to the point where we outscored them every quarter down the stretch."

KHS travels to Prescott Friday for a make-up game that was originally scheduled for Dec. 13. The Bulldogs will travel to Prescott Valley for the Bradshaw Mountain Tournament Dec.26-27.

The Bulldogs will begin the second half of the season by traveling to Flagstaff Jan. 11 and despite the record, Anthony is hoping for a playoff push come January.

"I think we have a great chance of making the playoffs," he said. "We have to win some games. I think the Bradshaw Tournament, there are some good teams there that we are going to get tested. It's a really good tournament to go to and get the kids ready for that last stretch in January."
