The Kokomo Wildkats lost to the visiting Westfield Shamrocks 68-50 on Saturday night at
A 20-8 third quarter was too much to overcome for the Kats, as they lost their first game of the year and fell to 1-1.
Westfield is a good team and in stretches of the game, the Kats outplayed them.
Unfortunately, defensive laps, ball-handling miscues, and some quick shot selection about halfway through the third quarter allowed the Shamrocks to get on a run that our Kats could not recover from.
Leading the way for the Kats was sophomore guard Bobby Wonnell with 13 points, three
steals and two rebounds. Senior Savion Barrett added 12 points and five rebounds, and
junior Jackson Richards had five points, four rebounds, and three assists. Junior Rajon
Sellers added eight points and three rebounds.
The Kats are back in action on Friday for our third consecutive home game to start the year. We will play Peru. The JV will start at 6:00 p.m., and the varsity will be at 7:30 PM. Come out and support your Wildkats!!!
