After one quarter in the boys game, the rout was on with Pascagoula leading 29-14.
“Kelan had been in a slump from the 3-point line, but he came out on fire tonight,” said Pascagoula coach Lorenzo Wright. “This team is really unselfish and sometimes they can almost be too unselfish. They did a great job of recognizing that Kelan had the hot hand early and it just trickled down to the guys on the bench.”
With the game pretty much in hand the rest of the night, Wright was able to get a lot of players in the contest. Rich kept firing in the third quarter and then the bench players got their chance.
“It’s always great to get young guys in varsity games,” Wright said. “It gives them the ability to showcase what they can do and it also gives them confidence for key games later in the season. We are trying to find an identity for the second group. I want them to be relentless.”
