Prep Basketball: Vols take down River Valley for 3rd straight victory
KINGMAN – Steady progression throughout a game can sometimes be too much for an opponent to overcome.
The Lee Williams High School boys basketball team proved that Friday with a 60-38 win at River Valley.
The Vols trailed by one at halftime, but used a strong second half, highlighted by a 22-point fourth quarter, to rout River Valley.
Lee Williams senior Kade Juelfs led all scorers with 21 points, while Marcell Thompson added 13 and Jayden Hooper finished with seven.
The free-throw line was crucial for the Vols as they sank 17-of-23, while River Valley was just 4-for-7 from the charity stripe.
Lee Williams’ defense also stepped up late in the game, holding the Dust Devils to six points in the final quarter to clinch its third straight win.
The Vols (4-2, 2-1 4A Grand Canyon Region) travel to Dysart (3-4) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, followed by a trip to region foe Prescott (2-4, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Lee Williams is back at home at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14 against Mohave.
