PASSAIC, NJ - Still playing without their star sophomore guard, Alphonso Gee, the John F. Kennedy boys basketball team needed a second-half rally to defeat Passaic, 59-47, on Tuesday.
The Knights fell behind, 22-11, after one quarter and still trailed by nine at halftime before unleashing a rally in the second half. Over the last two quarters, JFK outscored the home team, 30-9, to win going away.
Jevon Rawl led JFK (11-8) with 14 points and Aalim Jones scored 13 points in the victory. Jamier Taylor contributed 11 points in the victory.
Gee, who averages more than 23 points per game, has been out with an injury since the beginning of last week.
