The Cardinals will host Douglass, just a week after Conway Springs squeaked by the Bulldogs with a 48-44 victory last Tuesday. Conway Springs is currently 6-1 which is as good as start as the Cardinals have had on the hardwood in years.Belle Plaine boys: Joe Newman’s team continues to bring a more competitive product to the hardwood but still can’t get over the hump. Last week, the Dragons lost to Douglass 56-52 after losing to 5-1 Wichita Independent earlier in the week 51-47. Brandon Happy is averaging 14.3 points at the moment. The 2-5 Dragons will travel to Chaparral and Douglass this week.——— Douglass1-05-3 Wellington4-07-0 Flinthills0-05-1  League Overall Trinity Academy0-13-5 Conway Springs girls: The Lady Cardinals are looking more and more like a team that could challenge Garden Plain for the CPL title. They have won four straight and are undefeated since the Kingman tournament. Conway Springs handed Douglass its first loss of the season last week, 48-31. The Cardinals will have to do again at home to open CPL play Tuesday night.Belle Plaine girls: Will travel to Chaparral Tuesday night in a game in which both teams are winless in the CPL.——— Sedan1-07-0 Udall0-15-3 CV-Dexter0-11-5 Central0-11-6 South Central Border League Boys Garden Plain0-05-2 South Central League Girls  Andale2-22-4 Douglass0-14-4 Udall0-13-5 West Elk0-13-3 South Haven0-01-6 Oxford boys: The Wildcats lost a 40-39 heartbreaker to Cedar Vale-Dexter to open SCBL play. “We are young, but we still can play better,” said a frustrated Kyle Green after the game. Oxford, 3-4, will be at 1-6 South Haven Tuesday which will be their last regular season game before the SCBL tournament.Argonia boys: The Red Raider boys are back in the KBCA top 10, coming in at No. 9 in the latest poll in Class 1A Div. II. Their partners in football, Attica, are No. 5. No wonder the Titans were so good in football. Argonia eked out a 46-44 win over West Elk. The Rad Raiders have Tuesday off but will host a beatable 1-6 Central team on Friday.South Haven boys: The Cardinals are 1-6 and have their work cut out for them when visiting Oxford comes to town Tuesday and a trip to 6-1 Flinthills. Chances are the Cardinals are slated for the play-in game in the SCBL tournament starting Saturday.Caldwell boys: After a rough start, Caldwell is now over .500 with a 62-40 victory over Central. The Bluejays have an interesting matchup with Udall that is currently 5-2 on Tuesday. Caldwell won convincingly the first time around, but plays in Udall Tuesday.——— Flinthills0-05-1  LeagueOverall Wellington girls: With two more wins under their belts, including a huge 51-47 victory at Circle Friday night, the Crusaders continue to move up the ladder of respectability. The latest Kansas Basketball Coaches Association was released today (see rankings here) and Wellington is No. 4 in Class 4A Div. IV.Crusaders are trailing only 1. Bishop Miege, 2. McPherson and 3. Andover Central – all former Class 5A schools. Wellington leap frogged K.C. Piper and Labette County this week.Wellington maintains its No. 4 position in the Topeka Capital Journal poll.The Crusaders will host Clearwater Tuesday night which is 3-1 in the Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Div. IV and 4-7 overall. They then battle El Dorado away. Wellington girls will have a week off before playing in the highly-competitive Haven Tournament. Wellington head coach Eric Adams said that tournament will be one of the toughest in the state.——— Wellington boys: It will be interesting to see if the last half of the Wellington-Circle basketball game will be a benchmark moment for this Crusader team. Wellington was down by 22-points early in the third quarter, but pulled within three points in the final minute before losing by 5. As has been customary for a Brian Buchanan coach team, Wellington tends to get its stride this time of year.Wellington will host Clearwater, a team that has a similar record, before traveling to El Dorado. The Chaparral tournament will come thereafter. The bracket for that tournament will be released on Wednesday. Buchanan said Wellington is a No. 3 team. The Crusader, now 2-3, could realistically win five straight.——— AV-CTL Div. IV Boys   Med.
