  • The Fort Osage boys basketball team started the Suburban Middle Seven Conference season with a win.
    A 35-20 halftime lead elevated the Indians to a 62-52 home victory over Belton Tuesday night.
    Zach Adams had 16 points while D’Vante Mosby totaled 13 points and 11 rebounds for his third consecutive double-double.
    “We led the entire game,” Fort Osage coach Josh Wilson said. “We led 17 in the third quarter and they got it to within eight. We made some mistakes down the stretch. Then (Austin) Regier, Adams and Mosby hit some free throws at the end.”
    LEE’S SUMMIT 67, WILLIAM CHRISMAN 61: The visiting Bears couldn’t retain a 31-30 halftime lead in suffering the loss.
    “We were fortunate to get a win,” Lee’s Summit coach Keith Miller said. “Chrisman played really well.”
    Drew Lock’s 16 points and Dan McElroy’s 15 a paced the Tigers (3-3). Chris Horn and Alex Ball accounted for much of the scoring for Chrisman (2-2) with 20 and 19 points, respectively.
    “We are really pleased with so many things about how much better we played tonight,” Chrisman coach John Vickers said. “We are still making some mistakes of our own doing but it’s all correctable.
    “Brett (Pendergist) and Ben (Frost) did a good job on Lock and he is more than a handful. Alex and Chris gave us some good things on offense and defense and Nathan (Kendall) did a nice job off the bench.”
    Ball also had eight rebounds.
    ST. MARY’S 54, LEAVENWORTH (KAN.) IMMACULATA 30: Three players starred as the Trojans (2-5) secured the road victory.
    Antonio Johnson had a career-best 18 points plus 10 rebounds and Wade Johnson and Duane Joseph nine points each. Joseph also grabbed 11 rebounds.
    “We played really well as a team and had solid defense that was our goal going in,” Trojan coach Carlos Paige said.
    The Trojans outscored Immaculata 34-17 in the second half.
    St. Mary’s ran out of time.
    The Trojans couldn’t overcome a 25-12 second-quarter deficit in falling to Immaculata 43-41 Tuesday night.
    The Trojans, who had a three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 3-4, missed two shots at the end that would have sent the game into overtime.
    “We got into a little foul trouble early and missed a few easy buckets,” St. Mary’s coach Krista Daniels said. “But I couldn’t ask for any more at the end. It was a tough loss. The effort was there.”
    Alexis Sirna had 12 points, Selena Bedolla added 10 and Shayla Jochum and Nina Gavoli had nine each to account for all of the Trojan scoring.
    The Trojans trailed 27-18 at halftime.
