4A No. 1 Windsor boys basketball wins showdown with No. 2 Longmont

The Wizards and Trojans played what could be a state championship preview on Tuesday night, with Windsor prevailing by a score of 47-38.

WINDSOR, Colorado — You can bet there's a good chance we see this matchup again in the 4A boys basketball playoffs. 

In what might have been a state championship preview on Tuesday night, No. 1 Windsor (10-1) took down No. 2 Longmont (9-2) by a score of 47-38 in a defensive struggle. 

The game was tight throughout, with the Trojans jumping out to a 28-25 lead at halftime, but managing just 10 points in the second half. The Wizards won the final two quarters by a combined 13 points on their way to the win. 

Windsor was led by Jaden Kennis with 17 points and Ben Hageman chipped in 13. Eddie Kurjak paced Longmont with a game-high 24. 

While Windsor has the bragging rights for now, both teams have their eyes on a state championship, with the CHSAA 4A bracket set to be revealed at the end of the weekend.
