A few teams are still trying to get back on the court following the break. But the games that have been played have been dominated by the usual suspects. The highlight reel for Tuesday night reads a little bit like an all-conference team (in alphabetical order):

Elijah BrooksElijahBrooks6'2" | CGTopeka West | 2022StateKS, junior, Topeka West:

Last semester belonged to teammate Tre AlexanderTreAlexander6'3" | CGTopeka West | 2021StateKS. But thus far this semester, Brooks has stepped into the spotlight, demonstrating the skill that made him one of the top players in the league as a freshman and sophomore. He rebounded from an injury in December to score 28 against Hayden last Friday, and 29 in the win over Emporia on Tuesday.

Howard JohnsonHowardJohnson5'11" | SGJunction City | 2022StateKS, junior, Junction City (pictured):

Tuesday night belonged to Johnson. The 6-foot junior bounced back from being held scoreless against Emporia last week to light up Highland Park for 25. The five most important points of the game came in the final 1:22. Johnson showed his high IQ and ability to anticipate by stealing an inbounds pass and converting to tie the game on an and-one. Then he hit the game winner at the buzzer, finishing with 25.
