ANDOVER, Kan. The McPherson High School girls' basketball team began its 2018-19 season without head coach Chris Strathman.
Strathman is sitting out this semester teaching and coaching after announcing this week that doctors found a cancerous tumor in his colon.
Strathman had successful surgery Thursday morning and was able to watch his team online Friday night in the Bullpups' game at Andover.
McPherson honored its coach, beating Andover, 55-44.
