Playing in the Class B State Tournament quarterfinals, the Howard Lady Tigers succumbed to first half pressure from the Faith Lady Longhorns, as the Longhorns would come away with a 56-34 win. Howard got down early and tried to play catch-up all game long. 

Howard was led by Kenedy Koepsell with 16 points going four of ten from the field, two of six from downtown and a perfect six of six from the line. It was a very physical contest from both sides.

Kaycee Grove would lead all scorers with 17 points going six of 14 from the field, four of seven from the three-point line and one of two from the charity stripe.  Lindsey Wilken and Sydnie Schauer would each contribute 14 points for Faith.

Howard will be back in action today, taking on Irene-Wakonda, with a chance to advance to the fifth place game. Tip-off is scheduled for 1pm and action can be heard on FM103 and
