Slow start costly for Camanche girls

CAMANCHE — One of the biggest problems the Camanche girls basketball team has faced this season is the inability to score early. That problem was another thorn for the Indians, who lost 45-37 to Bellevue on Friday night.

The Indians scored just six points in the first quarter. Libby Schnoor put up the lone field goal (and a free throw) in the quarter, while Julia Moore scored the remaining three points from the free-throw line.

"We didn't make enough shots and didn't give ourselves very many chances tonight," Indians coach Danny Vogel said. "We had chances and good looks tonight; we just didn't finish them."

On the flipside, Camanche allowed 17 points in the first quarter to the Comets.

"Our girls weren't very reactive in the first quarter, but after that, we did play better after that, but it was too late," Vogel said.

The second quarter became low-scoring and defensive, but the Indians ended up scoring more than Bellevue, 9-6.

Vogel was quick to point out the Indians, ranked No. 13 this week by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, had a tough River Valley battle with the Comets.

"There's nothing wrong with the Comets," Vogel said. "It's not like we lost to a bad team. I think what hurt us the most tonight was that we did not adjust to their box-and-one defense."

The Indians hadn't seen much of that type of defense this season, but Vogel wasn't surprised Bellevue used the box-and-one and triangle-and-two defenses as the Comets were trying to take away Kylie Vogel's ability to score.

"I anticipated it and thought they might use it," coach Vogel said. "We've seen it this season, and we should have been prepared for it. It forces other people to step up and make shots and take control."

Vogel scored seven points for the Indians, while the leading scorer was Jordan Nissen with 10 points. Moore and Schnoor each had eight points.

Meanwhile, for the Comets, Ali Reeg had a game-high 20 points, while Jackie Kremer followed up by scoring eight points.

Camanche hosts West Liberty, whose only win of the season came against Bellevue on Jan. 20, on Tuesday.

  • 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.
