Northeast rallies past Camanche

CAMANCHE — Northeast scored 18 points in the third quarter to get a road win over Camanche 51-43 on Friday night in River Valley Conference boys basketball.

The Rebels also trailed 43-42 with 90 seconds remaining in the game, but turnovers and jittery play led to many opportunities for Northeast to take the lead and the game. The shot that put the nail on the coffin was a 3-pointer from Will Hasken.

"We were just lucky to get out of here with a win," Rebels coach Travis Eversmeyer said. "We didn't necessarily play that well, but props to Camanche for playing their butts off."

Camanche coach Josh Davis realizes that one shot was a buzzkill to his team.

"They didn't outplay us in those last two minutes, but I thought they landed the big shots when needed," he said. "And we were never able to overcome it."

Northeast did not give itself too many opportunities to take the lead early with missed free throws and missed layups.

"That hurt our confidence a little bit," Eversmeyer said. "Once those things happened, we started taking more outside shots and got a little complacent. Then, we said with about a minute to go that we needed to step it up, and we did."

One of the players who helped that final drive was Rebels guard Eli Kaczinski, who came away with 13 points.

"Eli came off of an ankle injury and responded really well," Eversmeyer said. "He's huge for us, and not because he can score, obviously, but he doesn't play outside of his means. We spark when he's out on the floor."

Kaczinski returned after hurting his right ankle earlier this season.

"It felt pretty good tonight," Kaczinski said. "I've been dosing up on a lot of ibuprofen and icing it a lot lately, but wearing braces for the first time tonight helped, and I was just glad to be back out there for my team."

The leading scorer for Northeast ended up being Nick Wall. Wall hit five field goals and went 5-for-11 from the free-throw line.

Hasken, who had the big 3-pointer late, turned in 11 points.

Meanwhile, on the other side, Camanche knows that they can be a tough team, but Davis sees more to that.

"We keep having flashes of the good things we can do and how good we can really be," he said. "There was a time when this team would have folded in that third quarter when Kaczinski got hot. These guys are a close bunch; they win together and they lose together."
