Boys basketball: Midland handles Prince of Peace

Area roundup

WYOMING — The Prince of Peace Irish hit three 3-pointers in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to take down Midland on Tuesday night in a 53-39 Tri-Rivers Conference boys basketball loss.

Nic Roth had two of the three makes from deep, giving him a team-high 12 points. Lucas Laufenberg had eight first-half points.

Prince of Peace was held to just four points in the third quarter.

MAQUOKETA — Trevor Green went 8-for-8 at the free-throw line in the second half to help his Central Dewitt Sabers hold off Maquoketa 59-47 to start the season 3-0.

Christian Wright had four made 3-pointers in the second half helping his 14-point total. The Sabers outscored Maquoketa 38-20 in the second half.

Jon Ernst scored nine in the second half despite playing in foul trouble.

Easton Valley rolls

PRESTON — A 33-point second quarter allowed the preseason favorite Easton Valley to cruise over Calamus-Wheatland 71-39 at home. Craiton Andresen hit five 3-pointers toward his 21 total points.

Calamus-Wheatland scored six in the opening quarter, and just four in the third quarter. However, C-W did push 16 across the board in fourth.

  • 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.
