Missouri State Finals: Small Schools To Decide Champions On Saturday

Missouri's state championships resume Saturday in Columbia with finals in the state's small schools classes.

In Class 3, Hogan Prep (22-8) seeks redemption after a 24-point loss in the 2010 final when the Rams play Strafford (27-3) in the final.

It will be a game between teams that have survived close calls. Hogan Prep beat Charleston 86-79 in overtime in Thursday's semifinals. Strafford won an overtime playoff game in the quarterfinals.

In Class 2, there will be a surprise champion. Crane (25-5) entered the state playoffs unranked, and No. 4 Bernie - which would be only a mild surprise - upset No. 1 Wellington-Napoleon in the semifinals. Crane, located southwest of Springfield, has won 18 straight games.

In Class 1, Scott County (28-2) plays Dadeville (30-1) in a rematch of the 2010 semifinals, which Scott County won. Scott County's Otto Parker scored 34 points in the semifinals and has set a state record for points in the post-season.
