WICHITA, Kan. Kapaun jumped out of the gates swinging, opening the game on an 11-4 run. But Newton came back with a vengeance, building a big lead, and cruising to a 74-57 win.
Newton was working the ball inside frequently early in the game, as Kapaun doubled up trying to stop Newton star Ty Berry. Kapaun took advantage of the Railers sluggish start with ball control and a barrage of threes. But Newton eventually proved to be too much.
