Thursday Night’s High School Basketball included the final night of action at the Mark Twain Conference Tournament at College of the Ozarks.

The Girls Championship goes to Bradleyville, who knocked off New Covenant Academy 57-50 in the finals while NCA grabbed the Boys title over host School of the Ozarks 56-38. Among the other games, Hurley beat Chadwick in the girls third place game 55-48 in a game that saw Chadwick end the game with only two players due to foul trouble.

Elsewhere, it was semi-final night at both the Galena Girls and Spokane Boys Tournaments setting up final games tonight, one day earlier than scheduled due to potential winter weather on Saturday.
