During a ceremony that honored Kingman Academy's outgoing seniors, senior Johnny Herrero's advice to his teammates was simple enough: make layups.

It was advice that wasn't followed Friday afternoon, according KAHS coach Bryant Morrison, but the good news for the Tigers was that it didn't hurt them too much in a 56-51 win over Peoria Accelerated.

"We definitely didn't follow his advice today," Morrison said.

While Morrison will take the win, it was an ugly one. The Tigers shot 30 percent from the field as Peoria jumped out to a 14-9 lead after the first quarter and held 10-point lead (22-12) in the second quarter before going into the locker room with a 25-18 halftime lead.

"It was a just a lack of focus," Morrison said. "It was just one of those ones where you beat a team by a lot before and you think its going to be the same."

The Tigers beat Peoria 72-57 on Jan. 11.

"Its hard for them to understand that everyone has a bad game and their game could've been bad against us," Morrison said.

KAHS (16-5) went on a 10-3 run to start the third quarter to take its first lead of the game (29-28) and headed into the fourth quarter tied at 42.

In the fourth, the Tigers went on a 12-0 run in the final minutes to overcome a six-point deficit to secure the win.

KAHS will close out the regular season this week with games Tuesday at MALC at Fort Mohave and Adobe Mountain in Phoenix on Thursday.

The 3A Charter Athletic Association playoffs begin Feb. 20. Currently the Tigers hold the No. 5 seed.
