The MHS boys welcomed in one of the top teams in the state in undefeated Highland Park and could only hang with the Scots for a half in a 56-29 loss. Manhattan got within two late in the first quarter at 8-6, but Highland Park built a 24-14 lead by halftime. Then the Scots pushed their lead to 18 in the third quarter and cruised in the second half for the win. Manhattan was led in scoring by Chris Hudgins who had seven points and Winston Dimel chipped in six points as well. The Indians couldn’t contain Highland Park leading scorer Jamaal McMurray who led all scorers with 18 points.
