Can things get any better for West St. John?

After losing one of their best players, teams from around the area expected a dropoff in the performance of the Rams.

However someone failed to relay that message to West St. John.

Behind yet another balanced scoring effort, the Rams remained unbeaten in district play after a 77-49 trouncing of Redeemer-Seton.

Tyren Johnson led the Rams with 20 points and Kevin Wright added 14. Denarold Anderson also had 12 in the West St. John win.

The win pushes the Rams record to 14-2 and 2-0 in district play.

West St. John head coach Antoine Edwards said he continues to be impressed with his team’s effort each night and hopes it continues for the duration of the season.

“We had three guys in double figures, but when you look in the box score we had so many guys that contributed and had big games,” Edwards said. “Dana Stipe had eight points and Juan Joseph added nine points.

“We pretty much spread the ball around and everybody played unselfish basketball and that allowed us to come away with the victory.”

Happy with almost all aspects of his team’s play at the moment, Edwards said any coach can pick out specific things that his team can improve on.

“I really think that we are just playing very unselfish basketball right now,” Edwards said. “We are playing together as a team. On certain nights it may be someone different who is scoring in double-figures and lead us, but right now we are just playing very solid as a team.

“If I had to pick out a particular thing that we have to improve on, I would say it would have to be our free throw shooting. We went to the line 14 times against Seton and we only made five. I think that is one of the few things that our hurting us right now. We’ll get it fixed though.”
