Kingston Guards dominate
Ringwood never had a chance from the tip due to the pressure Kingston put on their Guards defensively. Kingston used a press throughout the game that led to easy transition buckets.
Germany made a double-double look easy
Jacob Germany had a good game dominating the matchup inside against Ringwood. He did a good job against the size of Ringwood. Ringwood anchored the Post with 2 starters over 6’9 throwing everything and the kitchen sink at Germany but they could not stop him. Germany runs the floor well, which led to multiple easy baskets on the fast break. He needs to get stronger and tougher to help him against physical Post players. Germany has the making of a High Major Post.
Kingston catches fire from deep
The Kingston Guards came to play lighting the Mabee Center on fire. They scored the ball with ease shooting 13-24 from behind the arc. Ryle Holmes had a terrific showing shooting 8-12 with 18 points. The junior did a great job of moving without the ball to create holes in the defense. Conner Brister another junior Guard for Kingston nearly matched Holmes scoring 18 points of his own. He shot 4-8 from behind the arc providing an early spark for Kingston. RJ Weeks did a good job of scoring the basketball efficiently 5-7 for 12 points. What impresses about Weeks is his overall play. Weeks also had 4 assists with 0 turnovers, a steal and a block. Kingston needs good Guard play in March if they are going to win a Gold Ball.
Bright spot for Ringwood
The bright spot for Ringwood is they are starting to have a good duo in the paint with Camden Patterson who many knew coming into the year and Jeremiah Decker. The first two games of the Tournament of Champions Decker has stood out with his 6’9 size and frame. Decker has a good low post game with the ability to finish when given opportunities in the paint. The key for Ringwood to get back on track tomorrow against Sperry is going to be feeding the Post.
