Both teams were eliminated last week in their first playoff games after staying closer than expected well into the second half. The losses occurred after the teams had compiled identical 11-9 (and 8-7 league) records. The boys, who were seeded seventh, fell to 10th-ranked Hamburg 84-78 on Wednesday. The girls, after staying within five points of Sweet Home at the half, fell 59-44.
