Taking control of their destiny: Lady Jackets knock off state-ranked Cairo
The Glasgow girls basketball team has been in contention for the Central Activities Conference championship in each of the past two seasons. Both times, Glasgow has come up short, finishing one game back in second place.
On Tuesday, the Lady Jackets were one of four teams still in contention to win the title this season. To remain in the hunt, Glasgow would have to knock off Cairo, the only team to hand the Lady Jackets a conference loss this season.
Glasgow’s view at the top looks pretty sweet right now. For the second time this season, Glasgow defeated state-ranked Cairo on its home court, winning 60-53 to take sole possession of first place in the CAC.

Reaching the century club: Higbee boys score 104 points in shootout loss
The Higbee boys basketball team had an opportunity to score 100 points against Bucklin/Macon County on Feb. 5, but head coach Jon Bishop graciously called off the dogs in the 29-point win. Little did he know at the time that Higbee would reach the century mark soon enough.
Bishop expected to be celebrating with his team after it scored 100 points in the first time in program history. That wasn’t the case Thursday night. It was a rare occurrence, but both Higbee and Prairie Home scored more than 100 points in the game. The Panthers were able to outlast Higbee in the final 60 seconds of the 32-minute shootout, prevailing 106-104 in a Cooper County Activities Association battle.


Eagles win on last-second shot to beat Baker in overtime
2/12/2016

It could have been a road trip that doomed the Eagles, who were riding an eight-game losing streak when it began. Instead, the Central Methodist men’s basketball team was able to change the course of its season.
Jay Jones dribbled the ball toward the baseline, then turned to his right as time was winding down. Jones put up a 7-foot shot just outside the lane that bounced twice on the front of the rim before rolling through the net with 2.5 seconds to play.
For the third game in a row — and all on the road — Central Methodist made a shot in the final seconds. Jones’ basket gave the Eagles an 83-82 overtime win on Wednesday against Baker in Baldwin City, Kan.

Glasgow boys stomp Cairo, set up rematch with New Franklin for CAC title
Glasgow needed a week-long break in its schedule. With illness and dental work sidelining players since its previous game against Pilot Grove, a long and much-needed break was just what the doctor ordered.
The Yellowjackets overcame a slow start against Cairo, but an impressive 30-point second quarter was more than enough in a 75-50 win Tuesday night in Glasgow.
