Ed Wright II's exploits on the basketball court netted him the Kansas Jayhawk Conference-Division II's most valuable player award. Wright and the Red Devils will play next week in the NJCAA-II National Basketball Tournament.

Try as they might, Allen Community College’s Red Devils were in trouble.

They struggled mightily through a miserable 10-minute stretch of their Region VI championship game against Johnson County. 

The Cavaliers embarked on a 28-5 run, turning Allen’s 30-19 lead into a 48-35 deficit by the 12-minute mark of the second half.
