J-D basketball teams sweep CBA

Girls Rams stay unbeaten; boys pull away in second half

— Once that was done, it was the boys turn, and everyone knew how CBA was going to try and contain J-D - namely, by using as much of the 35-second shot clock as possible on the offensive end and, defensively, minimizing the damage from Dajuan Coleman and Tyler Cavanaugh.

The Rams quickly thwarted those plans, holding CBA to five points in the first quarter and capping the period with Coleman's first dunk of the night. The Syracuse University-bound senior added two more thunderous slams in the second period on his way to 14 first-half points and 22 points overall.

Yet it was sophomore Jafar Kinsey that supplied the critical blows. With his team only up by five, Kinsey sank a 3-pointer in the waning seconds of the half, making it 29-21 at the break, and tacked on seven more points in the early stages of the third quarter as part of a decisive 25-6 outburst.

Overall, Kinsey had 12 points, while Cavanaugh weighed in with 19 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Dylan Haines led CBA with 16 points, but his team fell to 6-6 on the season as J-D improved to 10-2.
