KANSAS -- Windsor High School was extremely hot in the opening five minutes of the first quarter to whip out to a 20-8 lead over Tri-County. The Blue Devils went on to claim the victory 58-47 in the opening game of the Tri-County Boys Holiday Basketball Tournament Thursday.

Windsor held a 33-14 halftime lead. Tri-County came back with a 33-25 second half run but it was too little, too late.

The Blue Devils were led by Trey Leasher, a 6-foot-3 senior, and Tristan Warner, a 6-foot freshman, with 19 points each. Leasher had a double-double with 16 rebounds.

Arthur-Lovington 68, Stewardson-Strasburg 55

Arthur-Lovington took a 22-10 opening quarter lead and led 34-27 at halftime. The squad continued to outscore the Comets 34-28 in the second half.

Three players hit double figures for Stew-Stras. Jason Fry tallied 17, Brandon Helmuth with 14 and Justin Fulk with 10.

Hutsonville/Palestine 55, Cumberland 46

Hutsonville/Palestine has swept Cumberland so far this season. The two squads have played three times now with Hutsonville/Palestine taking all three victories. Thursday's tourney game was no different as H-P claimed the 55-46 victory.

H-P edged out to a 13-11 opening quarter lead and led 24-19 at halftime. The Pirates came back with a slight 15-14 edge in the third quarter but Hutsonville/Palestine got back on track in the final period.
