JEFFERSON CITY --- There are upsets, then there are upsets.

This wasn't much of one.

Then again, how it played out could be considered an upset, because this time, the Jefferson City Jays won it down the stretch, instead of losing it.

In a season full of blown leads and near misses, Kamari Bolton made sure of it.

The talented 6-1 senior scored 13 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night as the fourth-seeded Jays --- in a district that has four teams --- 'upset' the top-seeded Troy Trojans 59-51 in the semifinals of the Class 5 District 9 Tournament at Fleming Fieldhouse.

This district certainly has balance ... which is not to say it's great balance. After this result, none of the teams are above .500, as top-seeded Troy ends its season at 11-12.

But at this point, it doesn't matter.
