— Junior Nathan Stacy scored a team-high 22 points and Mill Valley rolled to a 71-51 victory Tuesday at Tonganoxie.

Neither team could gain an advantage early on, as the Jaguars (9-6) led by just three at the end of the opening period. The seesaw battle continued until MVHS started to gain some separation midway through the second quarter. The Chieftains (7-8) got within one with 5:17 left on the clock, but the Jaguars gradually pulled away and took a 34-27 lead into the locker room.

THS senior Dane Erickson, who led all scorers with 25 points, opened the third quarter with a quick layup, but MVHS answered with seven straight points to take control. The Chieftains never mounted another serious threat and the Jaguars led by double digits the rest of the way.

Stacy was one of three players to reach double figures for MVHS. He was joined by sophomores Drew Boatwright and Nick Friesner, who scored 14 and 11 points, respectively.

Both teams will return to the hardwood on Friday. The Jaguars will pay a visit to Bonner Springs, while the Chieftains will continue their homestand against Bishop Ward.
