The Eudora Cardinal Basketball team advanced in the class 4A-Division II State Basketball tournament Thursday in Park City with a 48-32 win over the Holton Wildcats. The low scoring game was by Holton’s design as they knew they could not match the high octane Cardinal offense.
The Cardinals played Holton close throughout the first half, but after a spurt by the Wildcats to begin the second half, Eudora took control and ended the game with a 17-2 run in the 4th quarter.
Senior Andrew Ballock led the team with 18 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Austin Downing scored 15 for the Cards and Mitchell Ballock nailed 7 points and 8 rebounds.
The Cardinals will now faced top tournament seed Andale (21-2) Friday afternoon at 4:45 PM. The game will be broadcast on kpreps.com website. A link to their broadcast schedule is here:
