Connor Epp runs the floor during Tuesday's Region 5B game pitting Freeman Academy/Marion against Irene-Wakonda. The No. 3 Bearcats had little trouble against the No. 6 Eagles, holding them to just three points in the first period en route to a 61-34 win. Epp dished out five assists to go along with six points, all scored on quick moves to the basketball that Irene-Wakonda simply couldn't defend. Gavin Pankratz led the charge with 16 points while Payton Arbach added 12 and Quincy Blue went for 11. FA/Marion will take on No. 2-seed Canistota Friday night, March 6 for a chance to play in the SoDak 16. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in Tea.
