Boys basketball roundup: Dail leads Fulton to win

FULTON, Ill. — Matt Dail had a strong second quarter, and so did his Fulton teammates.

Dail scored seven of his game-high 14 points in the second period as the Steamers outscored Erie 12-2 en route to a 54-34 victory Friday night in Three Rivers Conference boys basketball.

Erie hung close with the Steamers (15-5) early before Fulton began to pull away in the latter stages of the first quarter. Led by six points each from Kyle Huebner and Jake Willging, Fulton led 16-11 after one quarter. Huebner finished with 11 points, while Willging added 10.

Owen McConnell led the Cardinals with nine points.

CLINTON — Prince of Peace had its chances in the final two minutes but couldn’t score, allowing Central City to leave town with a 44-42 win Friday in Tri-Rivers Conference boys basketball at Central Catholic Auditorium.

The loss ended a four-game winning streak for the Irish (7-7).

Nic Roth scored 22 points for the Irish, who pulled within 43-42 with two minutes remaining. Fifteen of Roth’s points came in the second half. Lucas Laufenberg added 12.

David Mosher led Central City (5-8) with 15 points. He scored 11 of those after halftime, nine in the fourth quarter that began with the teams tied at 33.

MILES — Chase Zaruba continued his high-scoring ways, scoring 28 points Friday as Easton Valley ended Alburnett’s seven-game winning streak with a 75-52 victory in Tri-Rivers Conference boys basketball.

Zaruba buried four 3-pointers in a 19-point first-half performance that helped the River Hawks build a 38-27 lead. Easton Valley finished the first half with six 3-pointers, four in the second quarter when it turned a 16-15 deficit into its lead.

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
