Boys basketball: River Kings homestand ends on sour note


"I'm not concerned about that," Lawrence said. "He's a high-level kid, he'll know how to get out of this funk, and we'll work with him on that."

While the River Kings front two had struggles, the Lancers had their main horse ride them to their fourth win of the year and first win in the Mississippi Athletic Conference.

Cortez Seales scored 28 followed by Marlon Stewart with 11 points.

"Seales did a phenomenal job tonight, and it's hard to stop somebody who was playing as well as he was," Lawrence said.

Clinton had its first five games at home. They won the first three, including taking home the River City Classic title, but this week ran into losses to Dubuque Senior on Tuesday and most recently with North Scott.

"We competed really hard this week but dug ourselves into too many holes to climb out of," Lawrence said. "I think we felt a little too comfortable playing these home games, but I thought our focus on Thursday was a little off, and because of that, I don't think we performed to our best tonight."
