KUA Boys Basketball Rides Defense to Another Victory

Dorchester, Mass. — Riding a stalwart defense, the Kimball Union boys basketball team traveled to the Kroc Center to record a 56-36 win over Connecticut’s Marianapolis Prep yesterday to complete a sweep of its weekend schedule.

The Wildcats (11-3) limited Marianapolis (10-4) to just 18 points in each half. Malik Abu did a little bit of everything for KUA, scoring a team-high 13 points, grabbing eight rebounds and blocking three shots in Kimball Union’s second straight win following Thursday’s upset loss to rival Vermont Academy.

Devin Gilligan added 10 points, Malcolm Brent had nine, and Devon Thomas and Duby Maduegbunam each netted eight for the Wildcats. Kimball Union returns to action on Wednesday at home against Holderness.
