Iola High School’s ninth grade basketball teams split a pair of games in Iola’s freshman tournament Monday night. The girls lost 34-32 to Frontenac. The boys won on a buzzer-beater, 36-34 over Fort Scott.
It wasn’t until the second quarter that the Mustang boys took control of the game thanks to a monumental trey scored by Kyser Nemecek.
After that, Iola rebounded well and stayed neck-and-neck with Fort Scott.
