No one could ever make a case that the Burroughs Bombers aren’t a clutch basketball team. Down by as many as 18, the Bombers staged one of those Hollywood type come-from-behind efforts to edge Westminster Christian Academy on the Wildcats home court, 63-61. This could have been one of those classic trap type games. Westminster was primed and ready. A big home loss to Burroughs on their football field was hardly forgotten. The Cats packed the joint with noisy, boisterous students. The crowd roared with approval when prior to the game, gritty senior John Eric Steiner was honored alongside his parents for reaching the 1,000 career plateau earlier in the week. “We weren’t guarding anybody.

Wilcats lose to Smithville 47-37. To play in the third-place game with St. Louis' Miller Career Academy.
Columbia--The Westminster Christian Academy team came to Mizzou Arena with high expectations. What they got in the semifinals with Smithville in Class 4 was a disappointing loss. The Wildcats can count the ways. The taller, more physical Westminster team was out maneuvered often by Smithfield, who goes into the title game with a 27-5 mark. "It was a tough game.

For a moment it looked like an unlikely hero would step up. Senior …
