Prague is ranked second in Class 3A.
Prague scooted out to a 17-4 advantage after one quarter and led 26-13 at the intermission.

“We just struggled defending the 3-pointer and we gave up eight 3’s,” Prague coach Benny Burnett said. “We’ve got to do a better job on our outside defense. We’re capable. We just didn’t get after it tonight.”
Kellyville was accurate on four 3-pointers in the third quarter.
