PUNXSUTAWNEY — After an exciting night Monday at the elementary boys' basketball tournament at PAHS, Tuesday's action lived up to the hype, with a number of close games taking place throughout the evening.

Sixth-grade: Michigan State 30, Ohio State 16

The sixth-graders took the court first Tuesday night, and the opening game was a high-scoring affair, with Michigan State putting up 30 points to earn a 30-16 victory.

MSU was led by a triple scoring threat, as Brandon Matthews scored 10, Kyle Burkett scored nine, and Willie Hoover scored eight to lead the way.

BRADFORD — The Punxsy eighth-grade boys' basketball team rode into its season finale last Friday at Bradford on a five-game winning streak, but unfortunately for the Chucks, the Owls snapped the streak to end the season with a 43-34 victory in Bradford.

Punxsy played evenly with the Owls in the first quarter and actually led 10-9 at the first break. But Bradford won the next two quarters, 12-6 and 11-6, respectively, to set a lead the Chucks just couldn't overcome.
