Friday night saw several teams punch their tickets for the state playoffs. Here are some of the standout performances from the big school ranks:

Andrew Piper Andrew Piper 6'4" | C Lawrence Free State | 2021 State KS , senior, Free State (pictured):

In a low-scoring game that emphasized defense, Piper was the lone Firebird to reach double figures. The 6-foot-3 senior connected of 4-6 from the field and 3-4 from the line. The solid and fundamentally sound Piper doesn’t garner a lot of headlines, but he’s a hard-working team-first leader who has his team headed to state.

Joe Berry Joe Berry 6'4" | CG Washburn Rural | 2021 State KS and Jack Hutchinson Jack Hutchinson 5'11" | CG Hayden | 2021 State KS , seniors, Washburn Rural:

Both seniors closed out their careers with 11 points apiece in the loss to Free State. The Junior Blues struggled all season to find other scoring options. Berry and Hutchinson exemplify the type of character and effort that make Washburn Rural a top program year in and year out.

Zeke Mayo Zeke Mayo 6'4" | CG Lawrence | 2021 State KS , senior, Lawrence:

The 6A all-state guard showed just how special he is in a nail-biter with Olathe West. The Lions built a small lead and had to hold on in the fourth period to win 44-43. Mayo hit three 3-pointers and was the only player in double figures
