It was a tale of two halves for Shawnee Mission Northwest's boys basketball team on Wednesday against Free State. The problem for the Cougars was that they needed two good halves in order to knock off the Firebirds, who are ranked No. 2 in Class 6A. The Cougars proved that they could hang with the Firebirds in the second half, but a 15-point halftime deficit was too much to overcome in a 68-55 setback. George Specht scored all 16 of his points in the second half to lead the Cougars.
