The Milan High School girls and boys basketball teams both won one game and lost two at last week's Novinger Tournament, the boys finishing in seventh place with the girls settling for fourth.
After falling in their first two games of the season (62-43 against LaPlata and 71-48 against Green City), the Milan boys found the win column on Friday night, ripping the Brashear Tigers 72-40 in the seventh place game. Other Novinger Tournament boys finals were: 5th Place - Green City 63, Atlanta 53; 3rd Place - Scotland County 55, LaPlata 47; 1st Place - Novinger 57, Bevier 51
The Milan girls fell to rival Green City in a tight, low-scoring third place game on Saturday afternoon, 33-32. Milan opened the tournament with a 36-33 quarterfinal win against Brashear, before falling to Atlanta in Thursday night's semifinal, 37-32. The LaPlata girls won seventh place over Brashear, 45-15. The Bevier girls won fifth place over Novinger 68-36, and the Scotland County girls downed Atlanta in the championship game 39-32.
