Mill Valley boys open Coffeyville Tournament with ‘best all-around game’

January 17, 2013

Wyatt Voorhes scored 14 points and Kyle Kain added 13 points for Mill Valley as the Jaguars cruised to a 79-27 victory over the Ulysses Tigers on Thursday night during the Coffeyville Tournament.

Both Pat Muldoon and Nathan Stacy contributed 10 points apiece during the Jaguars’ first game of the tournament.

Mill Valley coach Justin Bogart described the win as a “great start” to the weekend.

The Jaguars never faltered against the Tigers and maintained the lead throughout the entire game. The Tigers were held to just five points in the first quarter and 11 points at the half.

Jumping on the Tigers defensively early on, Bogart said, really set the tone for the game.

“We were able to get to the rim and we created a number of turnovers leading to a lot of transitions buckets,” Bogart said in a phone interview. “This was our best all-around game.”

The Jaguars step onto the court again at 5:45 p.m. on Friday to face Wright Christian Academy.

Bogart said tonight’s playing puts the Jaguars in a position to be successful again "if we focus on same things we focused on tonight: defense and effort."
