Sumner Academy 50, Tonganoxie 40

Kansas City, Kan. — Clusters of turnovers early in the Tonganoxie High girls basketball team’s Tuesday sub-state game at Sumner Academy foreshadowed what was to come in a season-ending loss.

The Sabres forced turnovers on the Chieftains’ first five possessions to jump out to an early eight-point lead.

In the fourth quarter, just when it appeared THS (9-12) might be poised for one final push, turnovers again led to Sumner layups and the Sabres stretched a six-point advantage to 15 with an 11-2 run that sent them to a Class 4A sub-state semifinal.

Eudora 46, Spring Hill 41

Spring Hill — Eudora scored 20 points in the fourth quarter to claim the victory.

Oskaloosa — Oskaloosa sprinted out to 19 points in the first quarter.
