When playing the Kenesaw boys basketball team, opponents must keep one thing in mind: There are no easy minutes.
No matter who the Blue Devils have on the court, they are always a threat to put up big numbers on the stat sheet. That depth was evident on Thursday.
Kenesaw remained unbeaten and improved to 18-0 with a 74-48 win, in which 11 different Blue Devils scored, against Silver Lake (8-10) in the Twin Valley Conference semifinals at Adams Central. Kenesaw head coach Jack Einrem has faced opponents that have a bevy of scorers in his past. Now, he's just glad it's his own team that is equipped with numerous scoring weapons.
"We just have so many kids that can play, we wear (our opponents) down," Einrem said. "(Silver Lake) has kids that come off the bench, too, but it's just not the same. We bring kids in that can score. ... There's not a lot of teams that can bring kids in like Kole (Kimle), who's averaging 10 points a game and he's coming off the bench tonight. That's a big luxury. I'm having a lot of fun, let's just put it that way."
