"I'm real happy with the way the kids have played this whole week," Danville coach Justin Schommer said.

Allie Hafley scored the only six points Boyle (4-14, 1-5) got in the second quarter.

Paris 68, Burgin 57 - At Paris, Zack Gross' 26 points weren't enough for Burgin (8-10) to avoid a loss to Paris (11-7) on Friday.
