Playoff basketball is underway. Here are a few small-school standout performances from the early results:

Gunnar Ball, sophomore, Perry-Lecompton:

Ball has been a nice complementary piece for the Kaws all season. Tuesday, the 6-foot-1 guard was critical in a 62-55 win over KC Ward. Ball hit eight shots and led all scorers with 20 points, his season high.

Cameron Beardsley, senior, Valley Heights:

One of the best 2A teams a year ago, the Mustangs are loaded and ready to make another run. They lost in the state quarterfinals last year, and nearly everyone is back. Leading the gang is Beardsley, who shared the wealth all season, but has really kicked into playoff gear recently. His last three games of the regular season, he accounted for 26, 29 and 19 points. Monday in a playoff win over Washington County, Beardlsey hit 6-7 from the line and recorded 21.

Landon Boss, sophomore, Osage City:

The 6-foot-1 guard/forward has been really good his entire sophomore season. He is a force in the lane, a tough rebounder and can move outside to knock down shots. In a low-scoring win, Boss helped shut down the inside scorers of Council Grove, while also leading all scorers
