On Saturday February 1st, the Boys Varsity Basketball Team hosted the Portage Indians and came away with a 59-42 victory. The Kougars led nearly the entire game in what was their most complete game of the season to date. KV just kept building on their lead throughout the game at each break. The Kougars had a four point lead after the first quarter, a five point lead at halftime, a ten point lead after three quarters, and finished with a seventeen point victory.

Sophomore Nick Mikash led the Kougars with 21 points and 11 rebounds, followed closely by Senior Gavin Herrema with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Not to be outdone by very much, Junior Eli Carden added 12 points and 7 rebounds.
