“Last year there was a lot of posting up inside, but there's really none of that this year,” Lout said. “We're just run-and-gun. We barely have any plays, we just get up and down.

“I like it, because I'm 6-7, so I'm not going to college to be a center.”

The Bronchos had one of the most successful regular seasons in school history last year but were knocked out of the playoffs early. This year's team is off to a 4-0 start already, with a mostly new starting lineup.

“This group, we've been playing together since we were little,” Stiles said. “We've always worked as a team. We're the most unselfish guys, always looking to pass. I really like our chemistry.”

AGRA, DAVENPORT RAISE MONEY FOR MELSON

Agra and Davenport teamed to raise $5,400 to aid Davenport third-grader Griffen Melson and raise awareness for the kidney disease he suffers from on Friday, Agra Principal and Athletic Director Joe McElroy said.

Melson was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease in 2010 and will be treated at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

The schools held a blackout at their basketball doubleheader, along with a silent auction during the girls game and live auction at halftime of the boys game.
