---- — DEWITT — Central DeWitt suffered its first boys basketball loss of the season by falling to Dubuque Wahlert 54-47 in a non-conference game Saturday.

DeWitt had a slow start, scoring just nine points, but did finish strong by scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter. Kyle Bauer scored 21 points.

Free throws were a bit of a problem for DeWitt, which shot 12-for-24 from the line.

Dubuque Wahlert got its sixth win of the season.

Northeast prevails

DURANT — Matt Haferbier scored 19 points to help give Northeast its seventh win of the season, 62-38, in the River Valley Conference. Haferbier shot 7-for-12 from the floor, and Damon Diedrich followed closely behind with 11 points on 5-for-7 shooting.

The Rebels shot well from the free-throw line, led by Nick Wall, who went 4-for-4.

“I thought we moved the ball and shot really well at times,” Northeast coach Travis Eversmeyer said. “We did not get off to the best start, but we played a very solid second half.

“I was proud of how the kids competed this weekend despite not playing with Eli (Kaczinski). We are gaining valuable minutes for some of our role players who have had to step in and step up. I think it will pay off in the long run.”

Alex Rouse led Durant with 14 points.

Bellevue wins in OT

WELLMAN — Tyler Banowitz scored 21 points as Bellevue and Mid-Prairie played two extra periods on a Saturday night. The Comets wound end up winning 66-63.

The largest lead in the game belonged to the Golden Hawks around the five-minute mark in the fourth quarter, 48-39. Bellevue later went on a 7-0 run, then scored four consecutive points in the final minute to force overtime.

Bellevue carried that into the second overtime by scoring three points in the final minute after remaining tied for most of the period.

Chase Putman and Colby Mangler each scored 12 points for Bellevue.
