Shay Tanking exploded out of the game with four long three-point baskets and had 15 points in the first six minutes of the game as Holton staked an 18-3 lead and really never looked back.  Shay ended the game with five triples and 22 points while freshman sister, Saydee Tanking hit three trifecata's and added 22 points of her own. Holton improved to 14-5 on the season and 12-3 in the Big 7 League. 

Sabetha made 17 of 28 free throws but was held to one three-pointer on the night and made just three field goals in the first half before trailing 39-15.  The Lady Jays got 11 points from Skylar McAfee, but also struggled with 19 turnovers and fall to 10-9 overall and 8-7 in the League. 

BOYS = Holton 59, Sabetha 52

This was an exciting game of back and forth runs with Holton scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter to finish with a win and boost their record above .500 for the first time this season.  The Wildcat boys made seven treys in posting their third straight Big 7 victory and got a carrer night from senior, Brock Forrester, who scored 18 points in the paint. Holton led 9-0 to start the game before a 14-3 Sabetha run that put the Bluejays ahead 14-12.  The Cats won the third period 13-4 and started second half on an 8-0 spurt to take a 33-18 advantage. 

However, Sabetha got hot as Brett Stallbaumer hit a trio of treys and the Bluejays went on a 21-4 run to take a 39-37 lead into the fourth quarter.  After the teams traded punches and hit shots early in the final frame, Zane Moylan, coming off a career high 30 points against Riverside the night before, hit a trey to give Holton the lead for good 54-52 with 1:45 remaning.  AJ Haussler added a bucket and Forrester finished the night with a three-point play to push their record to 10-9 overall and 8-7 in the League.  Behind Forrester's 18 points, Haussler added 14 and Moylan chipped in 10, while Mason Strader had nine and Mason Chaney eight for the Wildcats.  Sabetha was led by Stallbaumer with 12 points on four treys in the second half while Gabe Garber scored eight of his 11 in the fourth quarter before Sabetha fell to 12-7 on the season and 10-5 in the Big 7.
