"I was just praying it would go in and it did," said Richards, who was the game's high scorer with 10 points. "We wanted it so bad. We wanted more than anything to beat them, and it was a perfect night and a perfect place."
"It's been eight years and I've told my kids every year, `We were the last team to beat them and I think we should be the first team to do it again,' ' said Junction City Junction City, city (1990 pop. 20,604), seat of Geary co., NE Kans., at the confluence of the Republican and Smoky Hill rivers; inc. 1859.
