SPRINGFIELD - Throughout the season, one of Troy Buchanan's mantras was to hold teams under 47 points defensively.

Against Kickapoo in the Show Me Showdown with a chance to play for the Class 6 state basketball championship, the Trojan boys came close to that goal, but the offense didn't follow suit in a 53-33 loss Friday at GSB Arena at Missouri State University.
