Meadville beat Linn County in Saturday night's championship game by a score of 55-44, with Derek Smith playing spectacular basketball for the Eagles, scoring 30 points in the win. Linn County, in falling to 3-1 on the season, was led by Josh Allen with 14 points.

Meadville beat Northwestern in Thursday night's semifinal, 66-52, and Bosworth in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night, 84-24. Linn County, in its second place finish, advanced with a 73-43 quarterfinal win over Brunswick and a semifinal victory over Bucklin/Macon County. Bucklin/Macon County's boys won third place over Northwestern, 48-47.

The fifth-seeded Bucklin/Macon County girls sprung a huge upset in the Northwestern Tournament, downing fourth-seeded Linn County in the quarterfinals, 34-28, top-seeded Meadville in the semifinals, 42-37, and second-seeded Hale in the title game, 42-39. Northwestern beat Meadville in the girl's third place game by a score of 28-27.

The Meadville girls and boys, headed in opposite directions coming out of the Northwestern Tournament, will continue their seasons on Tuesday night, traveling to Atlanta High School for a 6 o'clock doubleheader.

The Milan girls finished their week at the Novinger Tournament with a 2-1 record. Playing in the third place game against LaPlata on Saturday afternoon, the Lady 'Cats won by a score of 36-31, with senior guard Hannah Sanders scoring 18 points. Scotland County's Lady Tigers beat Green City in the championship game 55-24.

The top-seeded Novinger Wildcats won the boy's championship game over Scotland County, 55-54, while LaPlata routed Atlanta in the third place game 66-37. Milan beat Brashear in the seventh place game on Friday night, the Wildcats first win (in their third game) of the 2012-2013 boy's basketball season.
