This weekend in Kansas we have seen some primetime matchups to finish out the regular season and some early playoff action around the state. Let’s look at the players who stepped their games up in critical moments to round out the season and to kick off their playoff runs. There was limited action in general across the state, as teams seasons winded down to prepare for a post season push.

 

Saturday’s Playoff Action

Howard Johnson Howard Johnson 6'1" | SG Junction City | 2022 State KS , 6’1 G, 2022, Junction City: Facing a league opponent to open up your playoff run is always tough, but Junction city was able to come out on top against Topeka High to advance to a show down on Tuesday with Free State. Johnson in the win put up 22 points and hit 4 3’s to help lead the charge on offense. His change of pace and ability to create off the dribble and attack closeouts really complimented his shot making ability Saturday afternoon. He is getting healthy and heating up at the right time, and his scoring ability will be key on Tuesday against a Free State team with some high quality guards who can defend. Should be a fun matchup.
