PLEASANTON — A 3-pointer by Marmaton Valley High’s Bailey Griffith with 3 minutes left broke a 27-27 deadlock and gave the Wildcats a lead they never relinquished down the stretch Tuesday.

Marmaton Valley’s 34-29 win over host Pleasanton in the first round of Pleasanton’s midseason tournament sets up a rematch of a contest played two weeks prior. The Wildcats will take on Humboldt, which fended off a pesky Heritage Christian Academy, 46-36.

Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. Thursday at Pleasanton High School’s North Gymnasium, with the winner advancing to Friday’s championship game.
