Tuesday HS Basketball Scores
Plenty of action ended up getting postponed, but there were four games on the boys side, and six girls games, that did end up getting played on Tuesday involving Southwestern Kansas teams.
Two of them were decided late or in extra time. Sublette picked up just its third win of the season, a 51-48 road win in overtime over Stanton County in Johnson. The Larks (3-17) outscored the Trojans (7-13), 11-8 in the extra session to secure the win.
The other tight contest was in Hugoton, where the host Eagles held off Lakin, 64-63. Hugoton (15-4) took a 23-12 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Broncs (16-4) roared back, outscoring the Eagles, 25-11, to hold a 37-34 lead at halftime. The game went back-and-forth from there, until the Eagles managed to grab the lead and hold on for the win.
In other boys action on Tuesday:
Southwestern Heights 53, Cimarron 48

Riednour scored 16 of the 20 fourth-quarter points for Cimarron (6-14), including hitting on 11-of-12 free throws in the final eight minutes. Southwestern Heights (8-11) managed to hold the lead throughout the game, however, using a 12-9 edge in the first quarter, and a 13-9 edge in the third to take a three-possession lead, 35-28, into the fourth quarter.
