The good news for Kingman High Tuesday night was its 78 percent free throw shooting in the fourth quarter.

The bad news for the Bulldogs was their 34 percent field goal shooting in a 61-51 loss to Surprise Willow Canyon.

"We just missed some shots and didn't execute on defense, and that's how you lose basketball games," said KHS coach Ron Anthony.

KHS (8-13) was 17 of 15 from the floor, including 4 of 19 from behind the arc.

The Wildcats, meanwhile, were 21 of 37 for 56 percent from the floor and 6 of 12 from behind the three-point line.

"We played hard and it's just we missed a lot of shots," Anthony said. "We just shot bad. That's all I can say."

Nick Dellacippa was the lone double-figure scorer for the Bulldogs with 18 points. Rod Gilleo had nine points and seven rebounds. Jerron Anthony and Xavier Camacho had seven points each and Shane Metcalf ended the night with six points.

Kingman took a 13-8 lead after the first quarter, but Willow Canyon came back to grab a 22-19 lead at halftime and held onto a 36-32 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Anthony Thompson led the Wildcats with 13 points. Christen Salem had 12 and Nick Allen rounded out the scoring with 10 points.

While the loss snapped the Bulldogs' two-game winning streak, the good news for them was there was no time to mope around. KHS was back on the floor again Wednesday for a make-up game against Flagstaff and will be in action again today at Bullhead City Mohave and then on Friday at Surprise Valley Vista.

"We have to get this out of our minds and focus on the next game and get that one out of our minds and focus on the next one ... four games in four nights," Anthony said.
