The Knob Noster Panthers will have to share first place in the Missouri River Valley Conference East for now.

The Higginsville boys basketball team beat the Panthers 50-48 Friday night to tie them for first place in the conference.

The score was tied at 10 after one quarter, and Higginsville led 24-23 at halftime and 37-28 after three quarters in a game played at Higginsville.

David Barton paced Knob Noster with 15 points, and Hayden Anderson had 12.

“(It was a) hard-fought game by both teams … again,” Knob Noster coach Adam Easterwood said. “I hope we get to see them in two weeks in the district tournament. I think this one will leave a bad taste in our mouths we will not soon forget.”

The Panthers (17-2) will face Versailles in the championship game of the Clinton tournament at 5 p.m. Saturday at Clinton High School.
