HUTCHINSON — As they have all season, the Cubs fought valiantly, but for only the third time all season, that fight wasn’t rewarded with a victory.
Humboldt was eliminated from the 3A State Tournament on Wednesday in Hutchinson by Nemaha Central, 47-37.
After a back-and-forth first quarter found the Cubs trailing 11-7, Humboldt caught fire in the second quarter. They were able to up the tempo against a bigger Thunder squad and force several steals which led to easy baskets for Humboldt and fouls for the Thunder.
