Hansche sinks 8 treys in Coe win

PELLA – Mickey Hansche had eight 3-point goals for 24 points to lead the Coe College women’s basketball team in a 62-52 win over Central College on Saturday at Kuyper Gym.

Hansche was 8-of-14 from 3-point range to tie her own school record for 3-pointers in a game.

Megan Hayes had two blocked shots for the Kohawks to break the school record for career blocks at 150.

Aleena Hobbs had 16 points and nine rebounds for Coe (12-5, 5-1). Courteney McCrary added 10 points and eight rebounds.


Coe men top Central 80-73 in OT

PELLA – The Coe College men’s basketball team opened the overtime period with a 6-0 run with key baskets by Christian Fahey and JT Vonderhaar and held on to beat Central College 80-73 Saturday in an Iowa Conference game at Kuyper Gym.

Vonderhaar finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds for the Kohawks (11-6, 5-1). Jacob Timm had 20 points and nine rebounds. Fahey finished with 10 points.

Colby Taylor led Central College (9-8, 2-4) with 22 points.


RoughRiders stopped by Youngstown

Youngstown scored the last three goals of the game Friday night and tripped the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders, 5-3, in a USHL game before 2,715 fans at the Ice Arena.

The RoughRiders took a 3-2 lead in the third period on a goal by Adam Gaudette, but Youngstown tied the game on a short-handed goal by Ryan Lomberg and took a 4-3 edge with 2:19 left on a tally by Kiefer Sherwood.

Youngstown scored its final goal into an empty net with one second remaining.

Cedar Rapids began the game with a five-game winning streak. The RoughRiders fell to 26-9-0 for 52 points, good for a five-point lead over Muskegon for first place in the Eastern Conference. Youngstown has an 18-11-5 mark for 41 points in the Eastern Conference.


Linn-Mar girls nipped by Wahlert

Ranked as high as fifth in the state two weeks ago, the Linn-Mar girls dropped their fourth straight game Friday night at home to an undersized Dubuque Wahlert squad that had trouble holding onto the ball or shooting straight.

“They played harder than us,” said frustrated Linn-Mar Coach Jaime (Printy) Brandt after the 34-33 lackluster loss. “We need a gut check. We have to figure out what’s going on.”

Wahlert (6-9) came into the game “struggling,” according to veteran Coach Kris Spiegler.

“We’ve been looking for our identity,” she said. “But, oh my gosh, this win is huge.”

After taking a quick 3-0 lead, the Golden Eagles trailed most of the way. With 11 turnovers in the first half alone (almost all on bad passes), they fell behind 21-11 at halftime and 27-13 soon after.

Over an eight-minute span, though, the Lions frittered away their lead. They missed every shot they took, while Wahlert went on a 15-0 run to go ahead 28-27 with 5:20 to go.


No. 9 Lions rally past Wahlert

DUBUQUE - The Linn-Mar Lions dug themselves out of a 19-point hole in the third period Friday night and surged past Dubuque Wahlert, 68-60, in a Mississippi Valley Conference boys basketball game in Dubuque.

Linn-Mar trailed 36-21 at halftime and fell even further behind before roaring back.

Nic Uhlir led the Lions with 20 points. Jordan Bohannon and Jordan Brandt scored 14 points apiece. Trevor Noble and Lane Halupnik chipped in with eight points apiece.

Linn-Mar (10-3) is ranked No. 9 in Class 4A. Wahlert (6-6) is ranked No. 4 in Class 3A.
