McCluer North Pulls Off Upset, Becomes Favorite In Missouri Class 5A Final Four

The Missouri boys state basketball championship tournament begins Friday at the Mizzou Arena in Columbia with the Class 5 semifinals. They feature two of the top-six teams in the state in McCluer North, a school 15-miles northwest of St. Louis, and Lee’s Summit North.

McCleur is led by MaxPreps Top-100 and Arkansas recruit B.J. Young, whose 32 points in the quarterfinal single-handedly took over the game as they upset Chaminade of St. Louis. Chaminade entered the game as the top-ranked team in Missouri and top-40 in the nation.

Lee’s Summitt North, located a half hour southeast of Kansas City, is led by MaxPreps top-100 David Kravish, a 6-foot-9 power forward who is headed to the University of California. He’s averaging 12.9 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.

The winner will play in the Class 5 championship game Saturday evening. The Class 4 title game will be held earlier in the day.

The state championship tournament will conclude March 19th with championship games in Class 1, 2 and 3.
