Kentwood boys 55, Bothell 39

Joshua Smith had a sub-par scoring night with 15 points, but added 18 rebounds and three blocked shots to earn game MVP honors. Greg Humphreys and Trey Tyler added 11 points each for second-ranked Kentwood, which improved to 10-3.

Mike Harvigson led Bothell with 10 points. The Cougars shot just 28.6 percent (14 of 49) for the game.

After three quarter, Kentwood is still in command, 43-25 — despite alate 13-2 run by the Cougars.

Joshua Smith seems frustrated — although he had a monster block early in the third quarter. As usual, he’s getting banged around a lot.

Unless Bothell makes a big charge in the fourth, I’ll just be back with the game wrap.

Sorry for the delay. Had to go to the scorer’s table across the gym to get the scoring leaders, and am having some internet issues as well.

Here’s the quick rundown — Joshua Smith had just six points at the half, but pulled down 11 boards. Jason Boyce led Kentwood with seven. No one has more than four for Bothell, which shot just 20.8 percent from the field.

It’s 40-22 with 1:13 left in the third.

It’s 30-12 at the half, Kentwood. Not much offense from the Cougars, who have struggled with their shots.

Kentwood is showing good scoring balance. Back with the details in a few.

Kentwood is in a groove now with a 27-12 lead with just under two minutes to play in the hal — thanks to a 12-0 run early in the quarter. Smith sill hasn’t broken out. Watch fore a big second half from him.

Smith just took a hard fall to the court after missing a dunk, but he looks OK — just a bit frustrated not to get a foul call.

Jason Boyce has the hot hand for K-dub right now. His three-point play makes it 18-10 with 5:24 left in the first half. He has seven early points.

This is the third of seven games in the King Holiday Hoopfest at Hec Ed. Lots of great action all day long. The next bout, between No. 3 Federal Way and No. 4 Decatur, should be exciting.

Kentwood leads this one 13-8 at the end of the first quarter.

We’re midway through the boys game between No. 2 Kentwood and Bothell. The Conquerors lead 9-6. Joshua Smith, one of the nation’s top juniors, got several wam greetings from UW players before the game as he watched the Kentwood girls drill Bellarmine Prep, 75-48.
