St. John-Hudson's Chase Fisher goes through heavy traffic to get two points.

In their second game of the season, the St. John-Hudson junior high boys completely controlled the Kiowa County Mavericks on St. John's court this Tuesday. So much so that the Tigers' starters spent 35-40 per cent of their time sitting on the bench.

If you like fast-break basketball, St. John's head basketball coach Mike Burgan certainly has a team that's very entertaining to watch.

The Mavericks really didn't know what hit them after falling behind 22-4. In a lopsided victory against the Mavericks, St John easily won the game 57-29.

St. John's Chase Fisher's nine points led the way in the first quarter. Quincy Smith had a good quarter too making two baskets from downtown and a two-pointer. The rest if the points were spread around with Mason Osborne and Eddy Ibarra doing their part.

Going into the second quarter with a 22-4 lead, St. John's offense slowed down some, the Tiger boys scoring four baskets and everyone getting some playing time. The lead going into halftime had the Tigers ahead 30-12.

“It was good to see our team get out to a good lead in the first quarter” said Burgan. “We pressured them defensively and got some easy baskets as well as scoring within our half court offense. We work everyday in practice on defense and want to continue to get better.”

“It was also good to play all of the kids and see them be productive.”

Eddie Ibarra made 11 of his 14 game points in the third quarter, much of his scoring in a blitz move on the fast break-St. John's trade mark. He made five baskets and one free throw. Teammate Osborne had a 3-pointer and a basket. St. John's 6'1” big man Fisher had two baskets inside.

Going into the final quarter leading 50-16, coach Burgan had his bench go the rest of the way with Cashe McVey, Joel Ibarra and Calleros sharing seven points

The Tigers ended the game leading 57-29.

Scoring for St. John: Fisher 17, Eddie Ibarra 14, Smith 10, Osborne 7, Eddy Calleros 5, McVey 2 and Joel Ibarra 2, the Tigers shooting 34 percent.

Three pointers: 3 (Smith 2, Osborne), St. John shooting 3/7 for 43 per cent.

Free throws: Eddie Ibarra 2, Fisher 1, Calleros 1, St. John shooting 4/9 for 44 per cent.

Offensive rebounds: Joel Ibarra 3, Fisher 2, McVey 1, Clayton Bummer 1.

Defensive rebounds: Osborne 4, Fisher 3, Smith 3, Joel Ibarra 3, Bummer 2, Calleros 1, Eddie Ibarra 1, Luke Mercer 1.

St. John had six turnovers, nine steals and committed nine fouls.

The Tigers next game will be at Bushton this Thursday, Nov. 21st playing the Central Plains Oilers. The games start at 4:00 pm.
