ST. JOHN --- The Lady Oilers of Central Plains whipped the Lady Tigers of St. John-Hudson 49-30 in St. John.

The Oilers lost to the Tigers by a score of 67-53. St. John was the 2012-13 1A  Division I champs, but are ranked as a 2A school this season.

It was the last basketball game for Central Plains until January.

ELLSWORTH --- The Lady Bearcats had a 9-point lead late in the third quarter, but the Lady Lions of Minneapolis came back and won the NCAA match-up by a score of 37-34.

Senior Maycee Jones played a good defensive game and made the treys when Ellsworth needed them. She was in the Lady Lions’ passing lanes most of the night.

Minneapolis dominated the first half of the boys’ game, but the ‘Cats fought back in the second half, pulling within five points before the Lions clinched the win, 47-34.

Ellsworth will travel to Beloit Friday.

WILSON --- Wilson had an open schedule tonight and the games scheduled for Friday have been rescheduled. They will be played  Feb. 4, in Lincoln.
