Randy Albrecht knows his team hasn’t played close to their best basketball. If they ever arrive at that destination, the rest of Region XVI should be on notice.

The Archers continued their string of convincing wins against four-year junior varsity programs Thursday, cruising to a 97-55 win over Webster University’s junior varsity.

As has been the case in the majority of their victories during their current seven-game winning streak, the production was evenly spread.

Freshman guard Kuna Lahai-Pumagoi (Edwardsville) paced all Archers scorers with a career-high 18 points. Sophomore forward Cameron Hicks (Clayton) and freshman guard Travon Williams (University City) each scored 13. The Archers shot 61 percent from the field for the game, and dominated the boards at both ends of the floor, out-rebounding the Gorloks 43-18.

“Kuna has played well in some other games and done some things that have really turned games,” Albrecht said. “He does some explosive things. He gets us some easy baskets. He gets a steal here and there, and he gets some loose balls. He is one of the guys who’s been a good surprise for us.”

Lahai-Pumagoi and Williams saw their minutes increase significantly in Thursday’s game, which could perhaps be a sign of things to come for the upstart freshmen. For the first time this year, freshman Joe Reed (St. Louis, Mo.) logged the greatest share of playing time among forwards. As Albrecht continues to look for more defined roles among his roster, it’s the young players who have been the most impressive early on.

“The sophomores are going to need to elevate their games,” Albrecht said. “The freshmen are pushing the sophomores pretty hard right now, and they’re going to get the playing time if the sophomores can’t get the job done.”

The win improved STLCC to 8-1 on the season. The Archers will host Logan Chiropractic Saturday at 3 p.m. at Forest Park.
