Girls basketball roundup: Irish win in OT

CLINTON — Karli Atkinson scored 18 of her game-high 23 points after intermission to lead Prince of Peace to a 47-43 overtime victory against Central City in Tri-Rivers Conference girls basketball Friday night at Central Catholic Auditorium.

The win was the fifth in six games for the Irish, who improved to 7-8 on the year.

The Irish entered the fourth quarter trailing 33-25 but slowly crept back in it. Atkinson scored six points over the final eight minutes and Jackie Kokjohn added five to force overtime with the teams tied at 40.

The Irish opened overtime with a field goal from Lauren Pittman, and the rest of their points came from the free-throw line. Atkinson went 2-for-2, Hunter Chapman was 2-for-2 and Pittman made 1 of 2.

Ashley Iehl scored 16 points to lead Central City (1-13).

Maquoketa edges CCA

TIFFIN — It was a close game throughout between Maquoketa and Clear Creek-Amana, and it took overtime to decide the winner. The Cardinals won 52-46 on the road Friday night, giving them their fifth win of the season.

Taylor Bickford led with 15 points while Chiara Atienza scored 14 points. Aubree Taylor also found double digits with 12 points.

Nobody fouled out for Maquoketa despite the extra frame.

Marion topples DeWitt

DEWITT — The difference was eight free throws.

Marion defeated Central DeWitt 43-35 on the road, and things were pretty much even except for that one stat.

Each team made 11 field goals along with four 3-pointers.

Even though DeWitt had the lead heading into the fourth quarter, the Indians sank 9 of 16 free throws in the second half, and in the fourth quarter, Marion had its lead as big as 40-31 around the 1-minute remaining mark.

The Sabers only attempted two free throws on Friday, both attempted by Kali Roling. She made 1 of 2.

Miranda Meland led the Sabers with 16 points.

  • 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.
