All scores are in from Friday’s basketball action around the Southeast Kansas League.

The Fort Scott girls clinched the outright league championship with a 34-33 victory over Independence. This was the second straight season the Lady Tigers have won the SEK title after sharing the crown with Labette County a year ago. It is the first outright championship for the Fort Scott girls since the 2012-13 season. Overall, the Lady Tigers have won 10 SEK championships in program history — the second-most in the league for girls’ basketball behind Labette County’s 22.

Brackets for the Class 5A and 4A sub-state tournaments will be announced on Saturday. Tournament action gets underway with semifinals on Tuesday, Feb. 28, with 4A boys and 5A girls.
