Trojans advance, while Lady Trojans’ season comes to close

Bruce basketball teams both matched up with Winona in the opening round of the Region 2-2A tournament Tuesday night with the season on the line.

The Trojans blew open a close game the half, pulling away for a 90-70 win in their game. They will face Leflore County Thursday at 8:30 p.m. at East Webster in the region semifinals. A win in that game would secure a home playoff game for the Trojans next Tuesday. A loss will send them on the road next week.
