Yates Center boys win home tournament for second straight year



December 8, 2018 - 1:12 AM

YATES CENTER — The Yates Center Wildcats defended their home turf Friday with a 46-43 win over the Sedan Blue Devils in the championship game of the Wildcat Winter Classic. The game came down to the final seconds. The two teams — in height, in athleticism, in hustle, in their devotion to the full-court press, in their guard-heavy rosters —  shared an unusual symmetry. The action was always going to be close.


The two teams traded buckets for the initial eight minutes, and when the first half ended it was Yates Center who entered the locker room up 25-24. Wildcats senior Aaron King was responsible for 16 of those 25 hometown points. Not for the first time — nor for the last — King was the game’s leading scorer.
