Irish silence Huskies

SPRINGVILLE — Prince of Peace brought its defensive mindset on the road with its Tuesday night by defeating Cedar Valley Christian 67-28.

The Irish held the Huskies to nine points at halftime and just five in the fourth quarter. At halftime, the Irish had 44 points.

Andrey Drury and Lucas Laufenberg scored 12 points each for Prince of Peace.

Prince of Peace used 12 players and 10 of them found the scoreboard.

Monticello sweeps Camanche

MONTICELLO — After losing by two on Dec. 10 to Monticello, Camanche fell into the trap of the Panthers, this time losing 56-42.

The Indians did have the early lead, scoring the first two baskets of the game, but once Monticello took the lead midway through the first quarter, it was all theirs. Free throws certainly played a role.

Monticello went 20-for-29 from the free-throw line; Camanche went 9-for-13.

The largest lead for Monticello was 16 twice — with 3:00 remaining in the third quarter, then in the final minute of the game before the Indians scored five late points.

Two players scored nine points for Camanche: Will Seeser and Dylan Busse.

Sabers survive OT scare

DEWITT — Central DeWitt scored 12 points in overtime to defeat Clear Creek-Amana 64-56 in WaMaC Conference action.

The game saw several lead changes and defense. The most any team scored in a quarter was 18, and that was in favor of DeWitt in the second quarter.

Three Sabers scored in double figures. Kyle Bauer led with 19 points, McClain Steffens scored 15 and Jordan Cornelius scored 13 points.

Slow start hurts Comets

BELLEVUE — Bellevue scored just four points in the first quarter, leading to a 67-40 over North Cedar. In the same quarter, the Comets allowed 23.

The Comets did try to muster up some steam in the next eight minutes by scoring 20 points, but the closest they got after the 23-4 rout was midway through the third quarter while trailing 48-30.

  • 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.
