7 p.m. — At Dodge City, West beat Moscow to finish seventh, Buhler beat South for fourth and Derby beat Holcomb for third. Great Bend beat North 49-38 in the third-place game at El Dorado.
Also, I have to give props to the home economics teacher — or whatever they call it now, you know what I’m talking about — she gave the most amazing recipe for the most amazing peanut butter and MandM cookies. When I do make them for my family, I guarantee you they will never ever be mad at me again.
They’re better than any cookie your mom has ever made for you. Even my mom. No offense.
5:30 p.m. — Heights beat SM East 78-60 in the McPherson fifth-place game.
Any updates are coming in very slowly, although I see that Brooks has updated us on Valley Center having lost in overtime.
5 p.m. — Gardner-Edgerton beat Kapaun 66-51 in the fifth place game at El Dorado. KC Washington lost on a last-second shot by Denver Lincoln’s Danny Rodriguez. It was the second time in three games he’d won a game for the school in the final seconds.
A couple updates — Topeka beats Lawrence 66-64 to finish fifth in Topeka. Lawrence’s Dorian Green had 28, while Topeka’s Onzay Branch had 16.
At El Dorado, Campus beat El Dorado 51-45 to finish seventh. As you’ll see below, Wichita Northwest lost to Topeka West.
Here’s my first installment of the final day of boys tournament week. (I’ll do a recap when I get back to Wichita tonight, which will be late.)
In the seventh place game here at Topeka Highland Park, Topeka West just beat Northwest 54-46.
Northwest has played well at times, especially in the first quarter when it shot 7 of 15 from the floor, 3 of 6 from three-point range. Topeka West hit 8 of 12 shots in that period, 2 of 3 from three. Northwest trailed by four with two minutes to go. But Northwest just shot poorly after that first quarter, finishing 18 of 53, which means the Grizzlies were 11 of 38 in the final three periods.
So where are you? Any updates out there?
