The 2-1 Riverside Cyclones came to Sabetha to take on the Bluejay boys on Tuesday, Dec. 14, and the Jays were looking to keep their winning streak alive and defend their home court. Sabetha held the Cyclones to single-digit scoring in every quarter to take the win, 47-18.

Sabetha jumped out to 14-4 to start the contest, which was led by a charge from Davis Rokey, who posted 8 points in the first frame. Preston Michael complimented his team’s campaign with 4 points, and Christian McAfee added a bucket as well to help put the Jays up, 14-4.

The Jays man-defense kept the Cyclones at bay and held them to just 4 points in the first and second quarters, and took a 26-8 advantage into the locker room at the half. Sabetha had good ball movement, shared the ball well in the second quarter, and added 8 points to their lead outscoring the Cyclones, 12-4. Sabetha held a commanding lead at the break, 26-8.

Riverside struggled to find the handle against Sabetha’s defense to open the third period and managed only 2 points in the quarter. The Jays stretched their lead by posting 17 and led their guests 43-10 headed into the final period.

The Jay’s reserve players got some court time and Riverside outscored Sabetha 8-4 in the final period, but the damage was established in the first three quarters and Sabetha took the win 47-17 on their home court.

Rokey led his team with 13 points, five boards and two assists, with Michael adding 9 points and McAfee with 8 points.

“We came out and played much better in the second half,” said Head Coach Scott Burger. “We got lots of minutes for everyone off of the bench, and our rebounding was good again. We continue to work hard as a team and that work during practice is paying off.”
