— Shane Howard scored 12 points, and Kirk Rodell added 10, but a 13-point second half doomed Tonganoxie's boys basketball team to a 55-44 loss to Bonner Springs.

"I don't think we executed as well as we could," Tongie coach David Walker said. "The idea is to get it shaken off and look to sub-state."

The Chieftains (9-11) were coin-flip losers for the No. 4/5 seed and will face fourth-seeded Eudora at 7 p.m. Tuesday at EHS.
