At Idaho Falls, the Madison High School girls basketball team outlasted the Tigers for a 46-43 nonconference win in overtime.

Macie Gordon had 31 points for the Bobcats, including going 9-for-14 from the free throw line. Idaho Falls coach David Vest said the Tigers sent the game into overtime, then fouls started piling up.

"All but one of my posts fouled out and that really opened it up for (Gordon)," Vest said. "Both teams played a great game. It was a heartbreaking loss for us. We really wanted this one."

Madison (6-8) plays Tuesday at Blackfoot. Kennedy Robertson had 15 points for Idaho Falls (3-12), which plays Thursday at Blackfoot.
