A horrific showing against Bullard High School in the opening round of the Clovis Elks Tournament took Lemoore’s varsity boys’ basketball team out of the running for the tourney title. Despite the surprising 103-74 loss to the Knights on Dec. 26, Lemoore easily won its next three games to finished 7th in the massive tournament, completing the week with a 70-57 win over Madera.

As it is, Bullard, the team Lemoore, finished third in the tourney, losing 61-60 to Clovis High School. Roosevelt High beat Memorial High School 66-57 for the tournament championship on Wednesday night at Clovis High School.
