ABA basketball

•  The South Carolina Warriors played a foe that had to travel across the globe to play at the Carolina Forest Recreation Center.

It might have helped the Warriors as they came away with an 158-87 win over the Japan GymRatz.

Coach John Kefalas got a lot of production from his bench in the win and was very excited about the outcome.

“It was great,” Kefalas said. “It made our depth better because we had eight or nine guys involved. As a coach, it makes you really happy because your getting guys involved.”

Matt Kendrick led all scorers with 19 points while coming off the bench and also added 14 rebounds. Georgetown native, Brendon Knox, had a double-double of his own off the bench with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Pat Lewis (17), LeSean Watson (18) and Mike Vogler (14) all added double digit scoring off the bench.

Starters Marquies Gainous had 18 points and Kellen Brant added 16 points for the Warriors. Although Kefalas gained more depth on Friday, he still is concerned with his defense.

“We still need work on guarding the 3-point area,” he said, “but we are getting better.”
