(PARK HILLS) The MAAA Basketball Tournament Championship games took place yesterday (Saturday) evening at Mineral Area College in Park Hills. The Boys championship saw a highly anticipated rematch between the top-seed Central Rebels and the 3-seed Potosi Trojans. The game was close throughout, but an unlikely hero stepped up late for Potosi.

Overtime stayed tight too, as the game went down to the final seconds.

Whitley’s winner gave him 25 points for the game, which made up for his scoreless first half. Kanaan Wilson had 13 more for Potosi. Central’s Jobe Bryant led all scorers with 32 points. Trojans head coach Jackson Conoway tells us what he said to Whitley at halftime.

Whitley shares what this win means to Potosi.

In the girls championship game, the one seed Central Lady Rebels faced off against the two seed Farmington Knights.  The first half was a competitive, low scoring half with Farmington keeping up with the fast-paced Central squad.

Farmington led Central 24-21 at the half.  However, in the third quarter, Central found their offensive stride.  The Lady Rebels would score 28 points in the third quarter en route to a 65-51 championship victory.  Khloe Dischbein led all scorers with 21 points, Allysa O’Connor finished with 17, Sydney Miles finished with 11, and Taylor O’Connor finished with 7.  For Farmington, Raylin LaCava finished with 18, Madison had 11 points, all in the second half, and Brynn Johnson had nine points on the evening.
