Kaw Valley League action resumes in earnest this week after most league squads took a break to play in tournaments.

The KVL held its own in numerous area tournaments. Tonganoxie finished second and Lansing was third at the Tonganoxie Invitational, while Basehor-Linwood rolled to its second straight tournament title at the Bobcat Invitational.

Among other tournament teams, Bishop Ward edged Piper, 41-39, in the third-place game at the Spring Hill Tournament, and Mill Valley finished fifth at the Saints Classic while avenging an earlier loss to Shawnee Mission South.

Also, Perry-Lecompton finished third at the Baldwin Invitational and Bonner Springs finished fifth after edging Savannah (Mo.), 46-43.

Numerous big games will take place in boys league action this week. None may be bigger than Tuesday’s matchup than Basehor-Linwood at Lansing. They are the league’s lone unbeaten clubs and one will receive its first loss of the season. Another big game will be Mill Valley at Basehor on Wednesday.

The Lansing High girls collected their first-ever championship in the Tonganoxie Invitational Tournament, blowing out Jefferson West in the first round, collecting their first victory over Tonganoxie in years with a 53-39 victory in the semifinals, and then beating Eudora in the finals, 47-37. Tonganoxie finished third in the tournament as it edged Silver Lake in the third-place game, 47-44.

After winning their first eight games of the season, the Basehor-Linwood girls dropped back-to-back games in their home tournament and finished fourth. They remain unbeaten in the Kaw Valley League with a 3-0 league mark, but a difficult week lies ahead. They play at Lansing on Tuesday and then play host to Mill Valley — the league’s only other unbeaten squad and winner of four straight games — on Friday night.
