BLHS sweeps Tonganoxie in rivalry showdown

January 10, 2014

— Chase Younger and Zach McNabb each scored 19 points as Basehor-Linwood cruised to a 76-60 win Friday against Kaw Valley League rival Tonganoxie.

The Bobcats (5-1, 4-0 KVL) led by 11 at halftime, 41-30, and opened the third quarter on an 8-2 run to eliminate any thoughts of a comeback attempt. The Chieftains (2-3, 1-3) couldn't find an answer down the stretch, as the deficit grew to as many as 21 in the fourth quarter.

Patrick Muldoon and Tim Sanders joined Younger and McNabb in double figures with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Tonganoxie's Jack Dale led all scorers with 21 points.

Both teams will hit the road Tuesday for more league action. BLHS will head to Mill Valley, while THS will take on Bonner Springs.
