KINGMAN - Bolstered by a 17-0 run in the second quarter that lasted almost five minutes, the Kingman Academy High boys basketball team upended the Kingman Bulldogs Monday in front of a near-capacity crowd at KAHS, 52-37.

After KHS' Ethan Adams hit a 3-pointer that gave the Bulldogs a 12-8 lead, Tarik Skubal buried three consecutive 3-pointers and Breyden Potter followed him with three consecutive field goals for KAHS (1-0). The Tigers turned a 9-8 deficit at the end of the first quarter into a 31-14 halftime lead.

"When Tarik and Breyden caught fire, they got us on a run," said KAHS coach Bryant Morrison.

Skubal finished with a game-high 23 points, and Potter finished with 14.

"My team gives me shots," Skubal said about the run. "If I knock them down, I knock them down. I give my team the credit."

Turning up its defensive energy precipitated the run by KAHS when it went to a full-court press defense and blocked several shots.

"We pride ourselves on the defensive end," Morrison said.

That defense forced KHS (0-1) into 23 turnovers, and the Bulldogs shot just 27 percent from the floor.

"That's the game right there," KHS coach Ron Anthony said. "We fought back, but you can't win with 23 turnovers."

The Bulldogs closed the gap in the third quarter after Adams converted a four-point play and Sean Curran scored from underneath the basket to cut the lead, 36-26. Adams led the Bulldogs with 15 points, and Curran recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

However, the Tigers put the lead back to 17 with 7-0 run that ended the quarter with KAHS up 43-26.

"We had some momentum when we got it down to 10," Anthony said. "But then we turned it over three times in a row."

Lance Martin scored eight points for the Tigers. Caleb Boyett added three, and Robby Glass and Chris Pfeifer each had two. For the Bulldogs, Chayce Comins scored five, Tanner Cardiff had four and Rod Gilleo added three.

Gilleo, the Bulldogs' big man, was plagued by foul trouble for most of the game. He picked up his third foul in the second quarter, his fourth in the third, and fouled out early in the fourth quarter.

The Tigers picked up their largest lead of the game, 18 points, with 45 seconds remaining when Pfeifer threw down a two-handed dunk that got the crowd roaring.

"They're a good team," said Anthony about the Tigers. "They play hard."

KHS hosted Bullhead City Mohave Tuesday, but results were not available by deadline. The Bulldogs host Parker at 7 p.m. Tuesday in their next game.

KAHS hosts Flagstaff Coconino at 7 p.m. Monday.
