Shooting was not a problem for the host St. Mary’s boys basketball team Tuesday.
Michael Monteleone hit a game-high six 3-pointers for 22 points as the Trojans ran over Kansas City Lutheran, 84-43.
“We finally shot the ball well,” Trojans coach Byron Jones said. “We had a great crowd – it was courtwarming. We played with a lot of energy and we created a lot of turnovers.”
Blake Scofield added 13 points, while Joey Kenney scored 10 for the Trojans (5-8).
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 60, BLUE SPRINGS 49: A tough press made for a tougher second quarter for host Blue Springs Tuesday.
The Broncos used a 19-10 run in the second quarter for the Suburban Big Seven win.
“We didn’t do a good job of getting to the basket,” Blue Springs coach Frank Wheeler said. “They put a lot of pressure on us. It got physical and that didn’t help us out. They did a better job executing than we did.”
Donnie Herron scored a game-high 20 points for the Broncos (7-10, 2-4 Big Seven), while David Farmer led the Wildcats (10-7, 3-3 Big Seven) with 15.
“We were very fortunate in the middle of the second quarter to go on a spurt,” Broncos coach Mike Hilbert said. “That was the cushion we needed. We made some easy baskets, scored in transition and that was the difference.”
LEE’S SUMMIT 59, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 46: A bad third quarter cost the visiting Jaguars in a Suburban Big Seven game.
Trailing by two at halftime, the Jaguars scored only five points in the third quarter and couldn’t recover.
“We executed really well early in the game and had a good first quarter,” South coach Jimmy Cain said. “They really pressured us the rest of the game and we struggled against it.”
Anthony May scored 16 points for the Tigers (7-8, 3-3 Big Seven), while Luke Sealer added 13. Drake Patterson scored 13 to lead the Jaguars (5-10, 2-4 Big Seven).
“Our defensive effort was really good,” Tigers coach Keith Miller said. “We defended well in the third, caused some turnovers and got some easy baskets.”
LEE’S SUMMIT WEST 84, FORT OSAGE 57: A game-high 31 points from Ja’Wan Davis could not save Fort Osage Tuesday, in a Suburban Middle Six road loss.
A 23-7 second quarter was too much of a deficit to overcome for the Indians (5-11, 1-2 Middle Six).
“They went on a 13-0 run, then we cut it to 13-10,” Indians coach Josh Wilson said. “The second quarter was what cost us. They scored 23; we scored 7. Tonight, we just ran out of steam.”
B.J. Jackson led the Titans (14-3, 5-0 Big Six) with 19 points, while Michael Dixon and Todd Fletcher each scored 17.
