Cougars Battle Broncos in C2 Boys State Hoops Semifinals

Cross County’s boys basketball team takes on Amherst in the C2 state tourney semifinals this afternoon. 

The No. 5 seed Cougars won their first-ever state tournament game over Summerland 44-30 on Wednesday.  They enter today’s game with a 23-5 record. 

The top-seeded Broncos are 24-2 after beating Bridgeport in the quarterfinals.  Amherst was the C2 state runner-up last season, falling in the championship to Freeman, which did not make it back to Lincoln this year.
