CHAMPION — Nathan Kish really didn’t know what to say about his team’s free-throw shooting.
John F. Kennedy’s Mark Komlanc sure did.
Free throws weren’t the only reason Champion pulled away from JFK, 47-43, Friday night at Champion High School, but they certainly played a big role.
The Golden Flashes (2-1) finished an embarrassing 9-of-31 from the free-throw line, but they made 6-of-12 in the fourth quarter, which was actually a big improvement, to come from behind and beat the Eagles (2-1).
“It’s something we’ve got to work on,” said Kish, who paused for a second and smiled before answering the question about poor free-throw shooting. “We’ve been shooting them every day, but it’s something you develop in the summer.”
