Boys basketball: Defense helps SHS knock off Kingston
Call it a bit of payback.
Sequim’s offense shot just 40 percent from the floor, but its defense more than made up for it in a 49-37 home win against Kingston on Jan. 24.
Erik Christensen and Anthony Pinza had 14 points each and Alex Barry added 13 as Sequim avenged a Dec. 16 loss to the Buccaneers on the road.
The Wolves (9-2 in league play, 11-4 overall) held a 7-6 lead after one quarter but fell behind by three (22-19) by halftime.
Pinza and Barry led a strong third quarter surge that saw the Wolves outscore the Bucs 16-8, and Sequim followed it up with a 14-7 advantage in the fourth quarter.
Barry led the team with 12 rebounds, Pinza had seven assists and backup post Josh McConaughey had two blocks.
Sequim played without senior forward Rory Kallappa.
Colin Veilleux led Kingston with 10 points.
