Lyons raises bar in district win

The New Franklin senior had 20 points at halftime. Her opponent, just 16. Slater began to catch up in the second half and surpassed her point total in the fourth quarter, but by then New Franklin had quite the comfortable lead, thanks to the help from the rest of the New Franklin roster.
Lyons would finish with a career-high 27 points, leading New Franklin to a 58-39 opening round win over the Lady Wildcats at Salisbury.

Pioneers top Eagles, drop CMU to sixth in HAAC play
It looked like, for the second Saturday in a row, the Central Methodist men’s basketball team was going to rally from 15 points down for another conference win at home.
MidAmerica Nazarene, which led 35-20 with just over three minutes remaining in the first half, saw its lead disappear midway through the second half. The Eagles lost that lead, then regained it again with three minutes to play.
However, the script wasn’t a carbon copy of the Eagles’ win over Avila. This time, the Pioneers stormed back in the final minutes, holding on for a 76-74 win at Puckett Field House.
