On Friday February 28th, the KV Boys Varsity Basketball Team concluded their regular season by traveling to North Judson to take on the Bluejays and came away with a solid 72-60 victory.

The Kougars led basically from start to finish and continued to slowly build on their lead throughout the game. North Judson would make a few runs, but the Kougars were able to fight them off at every turn.

Junior Elijah Carden continued his solid play by scoring 15 points and controlling 6 rebounds. Senior Gavin Herrema had a very good all-around game adding 14 points, grabbing 6 rebounds, and dishing out 12 assists.
