Girls basketball roundup: Cascade beats Camanche

CASCADE — The Cascade Cougars have been perfect all season, and they remained unbeaten by defeating Camanche 43-30 on Friday in River Valley Conference girls basketball.

Kylie Vogel scored 19 points on the second-ranked team in Class 2A (behind Western Christian), while four other Indians scored 11 combined points.

Camanche tried to keep things close as it trailed only 18-14 at halftime, but the Cougars managed to pull away midway through the fourth quarter.

Abbey Meyer led Cascade with 12 points.

Marquette rallies for win

BELLEVUE — Bellevue Marquette coach Jim Kettmann had full confidence in his team despite being down as many as 11 points to the Bellevue Comets on Friday night in a non-conference matchup.

The Comets led 45-36 with six minutes remaining, trying to get their 13th win of the season in the second-to-last game of the regular season. The score ended up in the Mohawks’ favor, 53-52.

Marquette freshman Marissa Schroeder stole the ball while down late and went coast-to-coast for a layup. That play was the one that turned things around for the Mohawks.

After that play, play got a little heated, but the Mohawks fought through the deficit to get the win.

Bellevue had a chance to tie the game late but could not make free throws.

“We’ve been in many of these situations before,” Kettmann said. “We lost our first two games by a combined eight points, beat Prince of Peace in overtime and beat Central Elkader by three. Our girls weren’t nervous about playing in a game like this.”

Kettmann called timeout around the three-minute mark to reassure his team that it had a chance to win.

“We knew if we could get it inside, we would have a good chance to win,” Kettmann said. “I told the girls that we had plenty of time left and that they were good enough to win another close one.”

The Comets had players in foul trouble late, and had their leading scorer, Ali Reeg, fouled out along with Mariah Steines and Jackie Kremer.

“We kept telling Blake (Banowetz) to keep driving inside, and she did a really nice job of that,” Kettmann said. “She kept going in off of the high post, and they kept fouling her.”

The Mohawks took advantage at the free-throw line when it mattered most. Marquette shot 23-for-37 from the line; Bellevue went 50 percent from the line (6 of 12).

Schroeder led the Mohawks with 15 points while Nicole Blum scored 14 and Banowetz scored nine of her 13 points from the free-throw line.

For the Comets, Reeg led the team with 16 points.

DeWitt tops Maquoketa

DEWITT — Maquoketa did everything it could against the Central DeWitt Sabers on Friday night but did not get a lead or the win, and lost, 45-41.

The Sabers led the entire game, despite the game getting close in the fourth quarter when the Cardinals trailed 40-38.

However, the biggest problem the Cardinals faced was not sinking free throws. Maquoketa went 4-for-17 from the line, 2-of-10 in the second half.

DeWitt had two players who scored in double figures — Miranda Meland scored 12 points; Abby Willis contributed with 11.

The Cardinals also had two players in double figures, with Chiara Atienza leading with 15 points and Taylor Bickford scoring 11 points that included three 3-pointers.

Eastland dominates

MOUNT CARROLL, Ill. — Eastland scored 37 first-half points to take care of West Carroll on the road, 66-25. Eastland made 25 field goals and shot 16-for-28 from the free-throw line.

  • 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.
