The Redskins are 7-0 in Lake Country Conference plays as they seek their third consecutive crown.
Kingston's Jacob Germany hit for 38 points and 11 rebounds to help lead the Redskins to a 75-58 Lake Country Conference victory over the Plainview Indians Tuesday night at the Plainview Activity Center. Kingston, ranked No. 11 in Class 3A, improved to 18-3, 7-0 with the win. Plainview fell to 9-12, 4-3. Germany, a 6-10 sophomore post, owned the painted area at both ends. He had very few problems driving to the bucket for easy two-pointers, and on defense he was a constant problem for the Plainview offense. "Jacob played like a man tonight," Kingston coach Taylor Wiebener said. "He can do so many things well. The key is to encourage him to play every game the way he did tonight. He does such a great job on the boards. And he does a great job of finding the open man for easy buckets. "When I looked at the game stats I could not believe we played that well. We gave up too many transition buckets on defense. I would like to see us reverse that in our next two game. Plainview did a good job of keeping things close. We had to hustle to keep our lead most of the game." Kingston led 13-12 after the first period, but outscored Plainview 25-11 in the second frame to assume a 38-223 halftime advantage. The Redskins hit a strong 59 percent (30 of 51) of their shots from the floor to just 43 percent (19 of 44) for the Indians. Kingston committed just six turnovers compared to Plainview's 15 miscues. "We played really well in the first period, and they only had a one-point lead," Plainview coach Chris Ryan said. "But we must maintain a strong presence in all four of the periods. They got away from us in the second, and we could not climb back into things. When the other teams shoots as well as Kingston did tonight, it's hard to find answers. We have to raise our level of play to compete with good teams like Kingston." Ryan Capps had 16 points for the Redskins. Plainview was paced by Taylon Chambers' 18 points, and Jordan Jones chipped in 14 points.
