MAIZE — McPherson’s eighth-grade boys went 1-1 in a B-team basketball tournament hosted by Maize South on Saturday.

The Bullpups were a 33-16 winner over Salina South behind 9 points by Javon Mattox. Then the Bullpups were defeated 36-23 in the second game by Prairie Hills as Braydan Keane tallied 7 points.

“It was nice to have a day where the B-guys were able to go and compete,” MMS coach Tyler Brown said. “We moved the ball well and shot the ball well in the first game, but had to sit for three games and 2-plus hours waiting to play our last game. Overall it was a good day.”

MMS (33) — Mattox 9, James 7, VanCampen 6, Suterlin 4, Johnson 4, Cruzen 3. 

MMS (23) — Keane 7, James 4, Schriner 4, Sutherlin 4, Mattox 2, VanCampen 2,
