KINGMAN - For the first time since the 2010-11 season, the Kingman Academy boys basketball team is back in the State 3A Charter Athletic Association Tournament.

The Tigers (19-6) entered as the fifth seed against fourth seed Metro Tech Wednesday night in Phoenix. KAHS opened the season with a 55-48 win over Metro on Nov. 20 and beat them again 64-49 on Jan. 24. However, despite the two wins, first-year coach Bryant Morrison knows two wins doesn't guarantee a third.

"They have to understand that just because they beat them twice doesn't mean anything," Morrison said. "They scouted us. They are trying to figure out how to beat us."

Wednesday's game ended after this edition of the Miner went to press.

If the Tigers get past Metro Tech, they will likely face top seed West Phoenix on Friday. KAHS lost to West Phoenix twice, 60-51 at home on Jan. 12 and 70-50 in Phoenix on Jan. 26.

"We know we can play with them. It's just whether we can rise to the challenge," Morrison said of West Phoenix.

KAHS ended the regular season last week with a win over Bullhead City's Mohave Accelerated Learning Center on Feb. 12 and a 71-65 loss to Phoenix Adobe Mountain.

"I think it was good to get a loss before state," Morrison said. "It's one of those things - if you lose, you're done. It's not double elimination. So I want us to come out without the jitters and I just want them to play a normal game."
