Fairbury Jeffs Eliminated From Sub-district Play

A slow start in both the first and third quarters led to the Fairbury Jeffs having its season come to an end with a 70-35 loss to Malcolm in opening round action Feb. 24 in the C1-5 Subdistrict Boys Basketball Tournament held at Seward High School.

Fairbury started slowly offensively tallying just eight first quarter points, led by Connor Livingston scoring four points.

Following one quarter of play, Malcolm (8-16) had built a 15-8 lead.

The Clippers continued to attack the basket in the second quarter outscoring the Jeffs 17-12 and stretched their lead at halftime to 32-20.

Malcolm benefited in the early part of the third quarter by hitting the offensive boards hard. After that its press forced Fairbury into numerous turnovers which led to a number of easy baskets allowing the Clippers to expand their lead to 54-23 after three quarters.

In the eight minute third quarter, Malcolm outscored Fairbury 22-3.
