Day 3 at Koch Arena … Region VI men’s and women’s semifinals on tap today. Expecting to see an influx of 4-year schools descending today for the semifinals. I’ve been told West Virginia coach Bob Huggins will be here at 5 p.m. (UPDATE: Huggins didn’t come, but sent assistant coach Erik Martin) to watch Seward guard Jeremy Jones in his semifinal game against Cowley. The matchup between Jones and Cowley guard Tyrus McGee, who is signed with Iowa State, should be fun to watch. Here’s my story on Hutch’s OT win over Independence last night.
I’ll update with scores as I get them …
Hutchinson 55, Independence 50 FINAL Hutchinson led 30-16 at halftime. Blue Dragons hit seven 3-pointers in the first half. Hutch earns spot in Region VI finals tomorrow night.
Cloud 66, Cowley 62 FINAL Cloud led 33-30 at half. Symone Murray missed 2 fts with 2.4 seconds left that would have tied it at 62-62.

Seward 71, Cowley 67 FINAL Cowley led 37-32 at halftime. Jones was amazing … scored game-winner on breakaway layup with 19 seconds left and led all scorers with 29 points.
Coffeyville 68, Hutchinson 58 FINAL CCC led 32-28 at halftime. Still no Region VI title for Steve Eck.
