FORT SHAWNEE — Once the St. John’s boys cagers took the lead at 2:39 of the second period Saturday night, they never gave it back as the Blue Jays subdued homestanding Shawnee 63-49 in non-league activity inside Lappin Gymnasium.
Leading the way for the Jays (7-1) was junior Andy Grothouse with 18 markers (5 boards, 3 assists), backed by 16 counters by senior Eric Clark (5 assists, 4 boards) and nine each by juniors Evan Hays and Alex Odenweller.
On behalf of the Indians, Jaden O’Neal sprung for 17 (3 treys) and Trey Brock added 14.
In junior varsity action, Shawnee won 43-21.
The Jays head to Fort Recovery Tuesday night (5:30 p.m. JV tip) in a game postponed from Dec. 13 due to the football playoffs.
Shawnee hosts Kenton Friday.
