Boys:  TMP 69  Larned 63
Shane Zimmerman led four Monarchs in double figures with 16 points to help TMP finish the season sweep of Larned on Tuesday night.  TMP looked to be on cruise control heading into the 3rd Quarter with a 15 point lead but the 2nd Half would be anything but a cruise as Larned pulled to within one point heading into the 4th Quarter.  The Indians were able to tie the game a couple of times in the 4th but TMP was able to hit key free throws down the stretch to pull away.

Along with Zimmerman Kameron Schmidt added 14 points, Cameron Fouts 13 points and Kade Megaffin chipped in 12.  TMP will be at Scott City on Friday night.
