The McPherson Invitational basketball teams are continuing their outstanding seasons.
It’s looking more and more like the 51st Invitational, set for Jan. 22-24 at the Roundhouse, will be the crowned jewel of Kansas midseason events, though that’s generally the case anyway.
McPherson High continues to lead the way at 6-0, while Manhattan is 5-0. Wichita Heights (5-1), Maize (4-1), Blue Valley West (3-1) and Shawnee Mission East (4-2) are not far behind. The records of the top six teams are 27-5.
The other teams in the field are Mill Valley (2-3) and Hutchinson (1-4). The overall record of the eight teams is 30-12.
A new champion is assured as 2014 champion Lawrence Free State is not in the field.
