Sub-state hoops brackets set

Free State girls host LHS girls in Rd. 1 on Thursday

February 28, 2009


After splitting the regular season series, one game apiece, the Lawrence High and Free State High girls basketball teams will get a chance to break the tie at sub-state.

Free State (11-9), which knocked off LHS (9-11), 47-42, last Friday night in the regular-season finale, earned the No. 4 seed and will play host to the fifth-seeded Lions at 7 Thursday, with the winner moving on to Saturday, where a chance to go to state will be on the line.

LHS won the first meeting between these two teams, 39-37, back in December.

On the boys side of the bracket, Lawrence High (12-8) -- winners of six straight -- earned the No. 3 seed and will play host to Shawnee Mission West (9-11) at 7 on Wednesday at LHS.

Free State (1-19), meanwhile, takes the No. 8 seed and a 19-game losing streak into a first-round match-up at top seed Shawnee Mission Northwest (16-4), also at 7 on Wednesday.

Should either of the city's boys teams win on Wednesday, they would advance to Friday's sub-state finals but would not play each other.

All sub-state finals will be played at FSHS.
