SEDALIA, Mo. -- State Fair raced past Fort Scott Community College, 73-40, here Tuesday night in a non-conference junior college basketball game.

State Fair led 41-21 at halftime while shooting 45 percent from the field. The Roadrunners also converted 15 first-half Greyhound turnovers into 16 points.

Fort Scott committed 24 turnovers, according to statistics posted at the Sedalia Democrat's web page. State Fair committed just 12.

Tony McGilveary led Fort Scott with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Antonin Galaya, a sophomore from the island nation of St. Martin, led State Fair with 15 points.
