Congratulations to all the teams who have qualified for the state basketball tournaments this upcoming week. It’s quite an accomplishment after such a long season.
Here’s a link to all of Saturday’s scores. Don’t miss our package on the 100 years of state basketball tournaments, either. Not only did we do stories on state tournament experiences, Newton boys basketball’s rich history, Jacy Holloway and Camilla Hartzler, we picked the state tournament’s 15 best boys players and 15 best girls players through the 99 years of state tourneys. That was a daunting task, and there’s little doubt that no two people will agree on any list.
Below I also include video from three players going to the state tournament this week.
