Substate bracket set
The Lansing High boys and girls basketball teams begin postseason play this week in the Class 5A substate tournament.
A few close losses late in the season cost Lansing its opportunity to earn home-court advantage during the first round. Instead, LHS (9-11) slipped to the No. 5-seed and will travel to No. 4-seed Mill Valley (9-11) for a 7 p.m. Wednesday game. If Lansing wins that game, it would play either Gardner-Edgerton or Highland Park at either 5 p.m. or 7:45 p.m. Friday at Topeka Seaman.
The Lansing boys (8-12) earned the No. 4-seed and will play host to No. 5-seed Bonner Springs (6-14) at 7 p.m. Thursday in a first-round game. The winner of that game likely will play No. 1-seed Highland Park (20-0) in the substate finals at either 5 p.m. or 7:45 p.m. Saturday at Topeka Seaman.
