Of the many good things to come out of the 2014 annual Keith Lindsey Classic, the fact both Kansas City Kansas Community College teams can go deep into their benches was one of the best.  The 18th ranked Lady Blue Devils rolled to a 96-57 win over longtime rival Penn Valley Saturday after a 93-41 thumping of Ellsworth on Friday.
