The Maroon boys, coached by Pechone Stepps' younger brother, Trenton, trailed only once. They held a 13-5 lead after 10 minutes as Adams made one of his two 3-point field goals.

The Maroon led 28-21 at the half and were up 38-30 with about 15 minutes left in the second half. White rallied with a pair of free throws from Uniontown's Robert Kuns giving them a 40-38 lead with a little over 8 1/2 minutes remaining.

Uniontown's Zach Travis hit a 3-point shot to spark the Maroon on a 18-0 run that saw them ahead 56-40 with three minutes left. They didn't score again but White couldn't catch up. Kansas City-Wyandotte's Montell Anderson hit a 3-point shot to bring White within 56-51 with 27 seconds to go.

Jason Stoneking of Anderson County added 13 points for the Maroon team while Wes Brantley of Arkansas City added 10. Jimmy Hoskins from Richmond-Central Heights led the White team with 17 points with Pittsburg's Dillon O'Dell adding 10.

The Maroon made 43 percent of its field-goal attempts on 22 of 51 while White shot 31 percent on 19 of 62. Both teams made four 3-point shots.

Fort Scott's Daniel Durbin led Maroon in rebounds with 12 while Anderson led the White with 10. Maroon won the battle of the boards 45-38.

Travis won the 3-point shooting contest, making 14 shots to 12 for Anderson and 10 for Fort Scott's Kyle Altic.

Maroon girls 56, White girls 44.

Lee scored 5 points in about 30 seconds early in the first half to get on the board and jump start the Maroon during a 14-0 run that saw them ahead 19-7 with 11:54 left in the first half.

White rallied back to get within 23-21 with 4:43 to go on a layup by Madison's Shelby Melton off an assist from Uniontown's Hope Jurgensen.

Lee scored 4 straight points to boost the Maroon lead to 29-25 before Southeast's Christine Bone cut the lead to 2 just before the half.

Lee scored 16 points and had 11 rebounds in the first half alone. But she was not the only impact player for the Maroon. Girard's Danica Kelly, another FSCC signee, scored 7 straight points during a 16-0 run that saw Maroon's lead grow to 50-29 with around nine minutes to go.

White finally got going in the final five minutes, outscoring Maroon 14-4 with 6 points by Bone helping the cause.

Kelly and Lyndon's Malori Gales -- another FSCC signee for new head coach Katie Reihmann, who was promoted from assistant coach to take over from Diana Couch last month -- each scored 11 points for the Maroon. Hanna Myers of Liberal, Mo., who will also attend FSCC, led the White team with 21 points. Rebecca Fisher of Osawatomie, another signee, added 9 points.

Chanute's Danielle Rubow, who has signed with FSCC to play volleyball, had 11 rebounds for the Maroon, which dominated the boards 49-31. Bone led White rebounders with 10.

Maroon shot 37 percent from the field on 22 of 59 while White shot 36 percent on 19 of 53.

Meghan Winden of Frontenac won the girls' 3-point shooting contest making 13 triples.
