The Friends men’s basketball team showed why it might be the favorite to win the KCAC, cruising to a 90-58 win over Kansas Wesleyan on Thursday night at the Garvey Center.

The Coyotes hung in for the first four minutes, tying the game at six on a basket by Michael Johnson. However, Friends then started to pull away, scoring seven straight points to lead 13-6 with 14:37 to play in the half.

The Coyotes would close within four at 17-13 on a three by Brock Borovetz, but the Falcons responded, pushing the lead to as much as 19 during a 12-2 run, and led 44-26 at halftime.

Friends continued to pour it on in the second half. The Coyotes would hang tough early in the half, but Friends slowly pulled away. The Falcons led by as much as 33 before picking up the 32 point win, 90-58.

The Coyotes were led by 14 points from Brock Borovetz and 10 from Michael Johnson. Friends had 31 points from Joe Mitchell, while Colton Rausch had 22 points.

Friends improved to 14-2 overall, 5-0 in the KCAC in picking up its 14th straight win. The Coyotes dropped to 2-13 and 0-5 in the league with its 11th straight loss.

Kansas Wesleyan is at McPherson on Saturday.
