KANSAS CITY, Mo. — McPherson High’s basketball teams, for the third year in a row, have accepted invitations to play in the prestigious Hy-Vee Shootout.

Unlike the first two years where the girls played on Friday and the boys on Saturday, both teams will play on Friday and the games will be back-to-back.

The Bullpups will play on Friday, Dec. 19, at Avila University. The girls are matched against Lee’s Summit North at 4 p.m., with the boys playing O’Hara out of Missouri at 5:30 p.m.

Lee’s Summit currently is 9-12 on its season, while O’Hara is 15-8.

Once again, the Shootout is a four-day event, starting on Dec. 17 and wrapping up on Dec. 20.
