CBBN boys: Kamiakin wraps up 3A title

KENNEWICK -- Kamiakin used a strong defensive effort in the second quarter to win its first league title in recent memory Saturday, defeating visiting Kennewick 62-48.

The Braves outscored the Lions 15-2 in the second quarter to wrap up the CBBN 3A regular season title.

"It's the first time we've won league since the 1994-95 season," Kamiakin coach Brian Meneely said. "We really defended in the second quarter. We had five guys down in a stance and we just had a great mindset that we wanted to get stops. It was a big turning point in the game."

Tyler Holle's 19 points led the Braves (16-1 overall, 11-0 CBBN 3A), while Case Rada added 18 points and eight rebounds. Garrett Anderson added 10 points and eight rebounds and Justin Pedley finished with 11 points and seven rebounds.
