FULTON, Ill. — Zach Barber tossed in 37 points, Matt Dail added 16 and Seth Sanderson scored 10, and Dail hit a key 3-pointer in the fourth quarter to lead Fulton past Riverdale, 71-58 on Friday in Three Rivers Conference boys basketball.

Dail's only basket of the second half, was a key 3-pointer after the Rams pulled within two points. The win improved Fulton's record to 12-3.

Barber made five 3-pointers in the first half and had 19 points as the Steamers built a 44-31 lead. He added a 3-point basket in the third quarter, then scored 15 more points in the fourth quarter, when he went 6-for-7 from the free-throw line.

Indians win on road

BELLEVUE — Seth Boysen scored 12 points to lead a balanced Camanche attack as the Indians defeated host Bellevue 62-59 on Friday in River Valley Conference action.

Rebels struggle

GOOSE LAKE — Forced to play catchup most the night, Northeast never could catch Cascade over the final three periods of a 59-47 loss in a River Valley Conference matchup of unbeaten opponents Friday.

The Cougars (6-0, 3-0 conference) opened the second quarter on a 10-2 run and never looked back.

"In the first half, I thought we were a little timid," Northeast coach Travis Eversmeyer said. "We weren't attacking them the way we are capable of, and we were in foul trouble. The second half, I loved our kids energy and aggressiveness. They didn't back down, and they proved to themselves that they can compete with this team."

Devin Green led Cascade with 22 points, while Will Hasken and Nick Wall had 12 each for Northeast.

River Hawks roll

SPRINGVILLE — Logan Wilhelm scored 15 of his game-high 20 points in the first help, helping Easton Valley build a lead it didn't lose in a 60-52 victory Friday against Springville in a matchup of highly regarded teams in the Tri-Rivers Conference.

  • 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.
