The (9-1) Monroe City Panthers basketball team had a chance to showcase their talents on the hardwood in a big way during the week long 25th Annual Clopton Invitational Tournament. This past weekend during the tourney's title game, MCHS faced Winfield at Clopton High on Saturday. After four quarters, the "Black and Gold" rolled to an impressive 59-47 win. The win represented the 4th year in a row the Panthers have captured the tourney crown at CHS. MC guard Joshua Talton pumped in 25 points during the victory and was later named Tourney MVP. Teammate Logan Buhlig was also named to the Clopton All-Tourney Team. Talton took timeout after the 12-point win to discuss what he feels prep basketball fans throughout the "Show Me State" may have learned about this years squad at Monroe City after their performance against the Class 4 Warriors.
