Eudora The Veritas Christian boys basketball team couldn’t recover from a rough first half, falling to St. Marys, 38-32, in the KCAA state tournament third-place game Saturday at the Eudora Community Center.
The Eagles shot 3-for-25 in the first half, scoring just eight points. They came back to tie late in the fourth quarter, but St. Marys sealed it with several three-pointers.
“I was real proud of the way the guys clawed back into it with such a horrible start,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said.
Ethan Kay led the Eagles (16-8) with 10 points.
Elijah Penny and Nate Scott were named to the all-tournament second team.
