Morrison wins, Erie loses at Warkins Classic

ERIE, Ill. — Morrison started the second half strong, outscoring Stark County 9-3, and that keyed the Mustangs’ 38-29 win Saturday at the Cliff Warkins Cardinal Classic boys basketball tournament.

Alexander Volckmann and Hunter Hamstra scored 14 points each to pace Morrison.

Tanner King scored 13 for Stark County.

Erie fades in opener

Things looked good for Erie in the first quarter of its opener Saturday at the Warkins Classic, but things turned sour after that as its seven-point lead disappeared and Stockton came back for a 53-35 victory.

The Blackhawks outscored the Cardinals 15-5 in the second period to take a 21-18 lead at halftime, then allowed just 10 points in the second half.

Trent Schubert of Stockton finished with a game-high 18 points. Jacob Johnston scored 12 points to lead Erie, and Owen McConnell scored 11.

Defending champs win

Orion, which has won the past five tournament titles, kicked off the 2012 event with a win Saturday, as did Bureau Valley and Knoxville in other games.

Dylan Schultz scored 19 points to lead Orion to a 67-45 win against Mercer County. Mercer County led 14-10 after one quarter but was outscored 23-14 in the second quarter.

Trenton Higgins scored 16 points for Mercer County.

Parker Neuhalfen poured in 30 points, Tommy Johnston added 18 and each of them went 9-for-10 from the free-throw line in Bureau Valley’s 70-55 win against Kewanee Wethers-field.

Trevor Lay scored 20 points for Wethersfield.

Knoxville outscored Riverdale 24-17 in the fourth quarter to pull out a 70-64 victory.

Tyler Houston scored 20 points for Knoxville, Andrew Hale added 18 and Noah Hummel tossed in 16. Jared Richmond led Riverdale with 14.

  • 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.
