LIVE BLOG: Region VI semifinals

Back to the live blog for my last day at Region VI Tournament in Hartman- when I find out who is taking over for the finals I’ll put up a link to their Twitter account. The Barton men pulled off the huge upset yesterday in taking down No. 1 Coffeyville, which I think makes Seward the new favorite – and Saints guard Trey Starks had the WOW moment of the day yesterday with his follow dunk against Dodge City. Here’s our lineup today – I’ll update with scores and some stats as the games end.

WOMEN

Independence 71, Garden City 58 FINAL

Garden City led by six at halftime but got run out of the gym in the second half. Diara Moore led the Pirates with 28 points including a fadeaway three in front of her own bench from NBA range that had people buzzing at Hartman.

Hutchinson 61, Cloud 55 FINAL

Hutch improves to 32-0 with the win. Ranked No. 2 in the country, Blue Dragons will face Indy in tomorrow’s final. Jackie Patterson led Hutch with 13 points, but was only 4 of 19 from field.

Cowley 76, Barton 67 FINAL

Cowley trying for first Region VI title since 1957 and making 3rd title game appearance in five years.
