MVHS boys cruise to finals with second commanding win in Coffeyville
Mill Valley easily rolled past another team at the Coffeyville Tournament on Friday night.
Wyatt Voorhes scored 18 points to lead the Jaguars to an 83-41 win over Wright Christian Academy. Nathan Stacy added 13 and Brett Hamilton contributed 12 points to the victory.
Mill Valley coach Justin Bogart said most players had an opportunity to step on the court and score during the second night of the tournament.
“We got some guys to come off the bench who got some good minutes,“ Bogart said. “(It was) another really solid effort because we kept our focus.”
The Jaguars were successful behind the arc, hitting four three-pointers in the first quarter and three in the second.
“Again, I think it (the win) speaks to our ability to concentrate on the task at hand,” Bogart said.
The Wildcats were held to just 10 points during the first quarter and 28 at the half.
A goal of the Jaguars is to hold teams to less than 47 points, Bogart said, and defensively the team had to challenge themselves after the first half to keep their opponents below that mark.
“The kids had to challenge themselves at half time to make sure they (the Wildcats) don’t have 47 points,” he said. “They did really well in that.”
The Jaguars play their final game of the tournament on Saturday at 7 .p.m.
“We started so well in these first two games,” Bogart said. “If we can we come out a third night in a row and play as hard and as intense as we have the last two nights, it will speak a lot about our character.”
