'Hounds roll over Kingsville

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

KINGSVILLE -- There may have been a little post-tournament fatigue for the Battle on the Hardwood-champion Sweet Springs boys' and girls' basketball teams, but it didn't stop either Monday during a non-conference doubleheader at Kingsville.

The Sweet Springs boys had some trouble with the Tigers early, leading by only three points during the first quarter, but a 55-19 spree over the next two frames put the game out of reach for a 76-32 victory.

Senior Matt Harris scored 22 of his game-high 25 points during that stretch, knocking down a trio of three-pointers as the Greyhounds assumed command.

Kingsville (0-8) was led by sophomore Weston Carlton with 13 points.

Junior Jacob Schowengerdt tallied 16 points, junior Nathan Vogelsmeier added 12 off the bench and junior Jeffery Hall ripped down 13 rebounds for Sweet Springs (14-6) -- which has won five straight games.

Lady 'Hounds head coach Ben Hays admitted his girls "looked worn out," mainly on defense, but broke out to a 20-7 first-quarter lead en route to a 55-41 decision over Kingsville.

Sophomore Kelsey Herring had 18 points for the Lady Tigers (1-11).

Sweet Springs (13-7) got 18 points and 11 boards from sophomore Nicole Bright, with 10 points each from juniors Christina Higgins and Kati Viets -- who also came up with four steals and dished out four assists.

The 'Hounds will travel across Saline County today for a clash with Slater.
