Leading the way for Kokomo was Wonnell, scoring 21 points and grabbing three rebounds. Freshman Shayne Spear scored 14 points and added five boards. Oglesby added 10 points and five rebounds, while Richards added nine points and dished out six assists.
The Kats are back in action next Friday, January 17thfor a big road NCC battle at 10-2 Harrison. We are looking forward to getting back in the gym and getting better this week. The things that we are struggling with are all correctable with a great attitude, a hunger to get better, and resiliency! The coaching staff and I, as well as all of our players, would like to thank Wildkat Nation for all their support and hope to see you at Harrison next Friday!!!
