Westfield dominated play from tip to finish and outplayed, outworked, and outcoached the Kats for 32 minutes.

For the second straight game, senior Deonta Chamberlain led the Kats in spirit, effort, and leadership. He finished the night with nine points and 11 rebounds. Through two games, Chamberlain is averaging 16.5 rebounds per game.

Freshman Bobby Wonnell led the team in scoring with 11 points and also added three rebounds. Senior Shemar Robinson added 10 points and four rebounds as well.

The Kats will get back to work this week and look forward to playing Peru on Friday. As bad as it seems, everything that is going wrong is correctable as long as we are humble and willing to learn from our mistakes. As Kentucky Coach John Calapari says, "You are either winning or you are learning." We look forward to getting into the film room, learning, and getting better so that we can give Wildkat Nation the kind of play on the court they deserve.

Nov. 30 Peru (T) 6:15. pm (W) 47-35
The Kokomo Wildkats got their first win of the season on Friday night at Peru 47-35. The Kats won each quarter and played solid defense to secure a hard-fought road win. The game ended a three-game road trip to start the season.

Leading the way for Kokomo was senior Deonta
Chamberlain. Chamberlain finished with a teamhigh
16 points and 10 rebounds. It is the third
consecutive game Chamberlain has registered double digit rebounds to start the 2018-19 season.

Sophomore Jackson Richards played an outstanding all-around game adding nine points, three rebounds, two assists, and four steals.

Senior Jayveon White was an outstanding senior floor leader adding seven points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals, while freshman Bobby Wonnell added seven points and three rebounds.

The Kats will have their home opener on Friday when we open North Central Conference play with a boys/girls doubleheader against McCutcheon. We will be unveiling our Phil Cox Memorial Patch on our home uniforms, as we pay tribute to a man who impacted the lives of so many Kokomo Wildkats on and off the courts and fields!
