Bucs stomp Eagles | Boys basketball

KINGSTON — A low shot percentage didn't keep the Buccaneers varsity team from walking off their home court with a win Jan. 8.

The Bucs won 64-46 over the Klahowya Eagles.

The Bucs are now on a two-game winning streak, after defeating Peninsula 54-52 in a non-league game Jan. 1.

The Bucs' Olympic League record improves to 4-3 and ties them with the North Kitsap Vikings. The Eagles (2-5) are in fifth place.

Though they weren't shooting the ball well, Kingston head coach Blake Conley said the defense was "really flying around." The Bucs accumulated 19 steals and out-rebounded the Eagles by 12.

Kingston's KT Deam and Kyle Hamal led with 21 points and 16 points respectively. Included in their stats, Deam had six steals, Hamal had 12 rebounds.

Conley said We-Laka Chiquiti did a nice job of creating energy for the Bucs, after coming off the bench and earning two steals in a row.

"We did a good job," Conley said.

The Bucs next travel to Port Townsend Jan. 11. The Bucs defeated Port Townsend 69-35 Dec. 4.

Though victory is never certain, Conley said if the Bucs play their game, they will be in good shape against Port Townsend.
