Scottsbluff ends Aurora's season
At times it seemed like a one-on-one game, but in the end, Dru Kuxhausen's Scottsbluff Bearcats ousted Tommy Leininger's Aurora Huskies 76-67 in the semifinals of the Class B boys state tournament Friday afternoon at Pinnicle Bank Arena.
Kuxhausen edged Leininger with 39 points, including 16 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter alone. Leininger mustered 25 points in the final eight minutes to keep the Huskies in it, finishing with 38 himself.
The Huskies finish with a 25-2 overall record and a 50-4 mark over the previous two seasons. Scottsbluff will play Gretna tomorrow in the Class B finals at Pinnicle Bank Arena with tipoff set for 1 p.m.
