The boys and girls basketball programs are set to begin an attempt to “punch their ticket” to the final four for 6A State basketball in Wichita when they both open play this week in Sub State basketball action.
The Cougars, who will be the three seed in the boys’ sub state bracket, will open up on the road at Shawnee Mission East on Tuesday. The Cougars played the Lancers right before the winter holiday and defeated them in a hard fought, high scoring event 91-80. The winner of this game will advance to the sub state championship on Friday with an opponent and location to be determined.
The Lady Cougars, who also garnished a regular season victory over the Lancers, open Wednesday at home as the number one seed in their sub state. The winner of the Wednesday contest will advance to the sub state finals versus an opponent and location also to be determined.
