Kearney's size too much for St. Joe's


Tonawanda News —

St. Joe's closed out the third by outscoring Kearney 10-6, and even after the Kings went on the 11-0 run to start the fourth, Simon thought his team was still in the game.

"We were right there in the fourth quarter," he said. "I mean, one lose ball there would of given us a chance to tie it at 55-53. The ball was bouncing around and they got it and scored a layup. ... A game like tonight's exposes our lack of physicality on the inside and the lack of strength sometimes of some of our players. We talk about it and fortunately some of our big people are long and lengthy, but just not as strong as these guys were. ... I'm proud of them but at the same time disappointed."

Kearney point guard Antwoine Anderson played big in the fourth quarter, scoring seven of his 13 points and getting his teammates good shot with his passing and penetration into the lane. St. Joe's guard Jaylen Morris — along with Glover, made their return after a collision that forced them out of the Dec. 12 game against Canisius — scored 12 points.
