Very slow tempo game. St. Raymond’s was very intentional to slow the game down. Kinston looked great in their half-court offense. Kinston did a much better job boxing out and crashing the boards. St. Raymond was very tall, but only outrebounded Kinston by 3.
Kinston will host Rocky Mount this Saturday. Come out and support the Vikings!
