Thursday's winter storm prompted schools like Bonner Springs to announce postponements of basketball games scheduled for later that night.

Inclement weather has led to the postponement of several area high school basketball games previously scheduled for Thursday.

Both the Bonner Springs girls and boys basketball games at Turner, scheduled for 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively, have been cancelled, with a makeup date to be announced.

The Basehor-Linwood girls and boys basketball teams were also scheduled to play a doubleheader at Hayden High in Topeka on Thursday, but those games have also been cancelled. BLHS boys basketball coach Mike McBride said the game would be made up on Saturday, Jan. 26.

Thursday’s games were the final games scheduled for both schools’ boys and girls teams before winter break. BLHS girls basketball enters the break 3-3 (2-2 in the Kaw Valley League) after a 54-29 victory at Turner on Tuesday. The BLHS boys enter the break 4-1 and tied atop the league standings at 3-0 following a 74-70 victory on Tuesday in which Chase Younger’s 28 points and two three-pointers from Jahron McPherson helped the Bobcats rally from a 12-point deficit.

The BSHS boys team (2-4, 0-3 KVL) will enter break seeking to find the right starting five on a team that, through a four-game losing streak, has been struggling with chemistry. Meanwhile, the girls team avenged its only loss so far this season when it defeated Piper, 46-39, on Tuesday. The Braves enter the break 5-1 and tied atop the KVL standings at 3-0.
