On Friday January 22nd, the Boys Varsity Basketball team hosted the Knox Redskins. The Kougars used a very strong first quarter enroute to a 67-45 non-conference victory. KV came out of the gates with a very aggressive mentality on both ends of the court and sprinted out to a 28-5 lead after the first quarter. The Kougars maintained a 25-30 point lead for most of the rest of the game while continuing to focus on very key areas for their team as they build towards the Sectionals in 5-6 weeks.

It was a very balanced night of scoring for KV. Junior Nick Mikash led the Kougars with 12 points; Seniors Eli Carden and Matt Caldwell each scored 10 points; Senior Riley Jordan added 9 points; and Sophomore Hayden Dase came out very aggressively and chipped in 8 points.
