KINGMAN - Charging toward the finish line of the regular season with the goal of attaining a high seed in the state tournament, the Kingman Academy High boys basketball team has a few more tests before they get there. The Tigers passed another one of them Thursday in Goodyear, taking down Estrella Foothills in an AIA Division III Section 2 game, 70-64.

"Estrella Foothills is a good team," said KAHS coach Bryant Morrison. "It was a physical game and both teams pressed."

Kingman Academy (3-0 S-2, 10-0 D-III) did a lot of things well, especially at the free-throw line and on the boards. For the game, the Tigers made 20-of-27 from the line and outrebounded Estrella Foothills (3-1, 5-6) by a wide margin, 52-36.

"Lance (Martin) and Breyden (Potter) dominated the boards," Morrison said. "We were a little bigger, but they had a bunch of 3-point shooters. And they are young, starting two sophomores and a freshman."

Potter registered a double-double for Kingman Academy with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Martin finished with 13 rebounds to go with his six points.

Potter has been a mainstay for the Tigers this season, averaging 8.7 points per game and 7.2 rebounds. He impressed Morrison with another part of the game Thursday.

"He was 6-for-6 from the line. That was a shocker," the coach said. "For him to do that is awesome."

Potter entered the game shooting 42 percent on free throws, but improved that mark Thursday to 48. He went 4-for-4 in the fourth quarter as Kingman Academy kept the Wolves at bay.

The Tigers as a team made 13-of 16 from the charity stripe in the final quarter with Henry Chinyere making 7-of-10 and Tarik Skubal going 2-for-2. Chinyere led Kingman Academy with 18 points and he dished out five assists. Skubal finished with 11 points.

Caleb Boyett scored eight for Kingman Academy. Robby Glass added six, Austin Tomlinson had five and Chris Pfeiffer contributed one.

There are seven games remaining on the Tigers' schedule and each one is important as far as getting the optimum position for the state tournament.

"If we lose a game, we could drop 12 places," Morrison said. "We have to keep that in mind as a motivator."

Kingman Academy hosts Seligman (4-4 D-IV) at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The Tigers beat the Antelopes in Seligman Dec. 17, 74-44.
