It was an opening round 3A Sub State matchup between two teams with a 10-10 record on Tuesday with the fourth seed Silver Lake hitting 23 of 36 free throws to defeat visiting Perry Lecompton 62-48. The Eagles won the first three quarters building a 46-29 advantage heading into the fourth quarter and never allowed the Kaws to get closer than eight points, largely because of connecting on 16 of 23 free throws in the fourth quarter alone. 

Silver Lake led 21-13 at the end of the first quarter and got back to back treys from Kyla Hay and Daryn Lamprecht to take a 31-15 lead which led to a timeout with 5:03 left in the opening half. Trailing 34-21 after halftime, Perry managed only one field goal make in the third period.  Yet, the Kaws battled back behind senior Blaise Ball and got within 53-44 with 2:20 to play and a minute later was within 56-48.  Yet, Jayme Lindstrom connected on eight straight free throws to pad the Eagles led and Lindstrom made 13 of 16 freebies in the fourth quarter herself before finishing with a game high 22 points. 

Lamprecht scored 11 of her 14 points in the first half as Silver Lake was able to attack and get high percentage shots near the basket while also grabbing several rebounds and 50/50 balls on the offensive end.  The Eagles improve to 11-10 and will face Mid-East League foe and undefeated Riley County on Friday. Not only is Silver Lake looking to extend their season, but also the coaching career of Loren Zeigler, who sits at 553 wins now in his 41st and final season at the helm. 

Ball finished with 21 points for Perry Lecompton and was the only Kaw to make a free throw going 8-8 in the second half when she scored 15 of her points. Fellow senior starter Jenna Keller added nine points before fouling out an Katy Hurd had 12 for Perry in her first game back from injury after missing the past couple weeks.  The 10-11 mark was the best girls basketball season for Perry Lecompton since the 2013-14 campaign under first-year Coach Jami Hodge.
