KMS boys lose opener and leading scorer

The KMS boys basketball team had its chances to pick up its first win of the season in the season opener, Saturday at RTR, but the Saints had a tough stretch at the end of both halves and RTR was able to hold off the Saints for a 72-63 win.

The KMS boys basketball team should have another successful season in 2020-21 after going 9-17 last year and losing just three players from the team through graduation.

“It was a tough first game,” head coach Matt Fragodt said.  “We didn’t take care of the ball very well and had a lot of unforced errors. We also got into foul trouble right away. It was hard to lose Isaac Call and Isaac Rudningen for most of the first half because of fouls. Our young players had to really step up...”
