Cougars, Lions draw byes in tourney

The Kennedy Cougars and Linn-Mar Lions have drawn byes in the opening round of the Class 4A boys substate basketball tournament and will have to win only two games to reach the state tournament in Des Moines, but it's certainly no cakewalk.

Kennedy might have to knock off fourth-ranked North Scott to make the state tournament and Linn-Mar might have to upset No.1 Dubuque Senior to get there.

The Class 4A substate and Class 3A district pairings were announced Wednesday by the IHSAA, and all of the Metro teams could face stiff battles.

Carter lifts Cougars by Warriors

The Washington Warriors made a living against Kennedy last season with three victories against the Cougars, but not this year.

A.J. Carter would not allow it.

Carter pitched in 23 points Tuesday night as Kennedy nudged the Warriors, 59-52, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game at Kennedy to sweep the regular-season series.

Kennedy and Washington could meet again in the Class 4A substate tournament, but for now the Cougars own a 2-0 edge on their cross-town rivals.

Kennedy did not like going 0-for-3 against the Warriors last season.

"Oh yeah, it's been a little chip on our shoulder," said Carter, a slick point guard. "All the guys have been on board. Whenever Wash comes to our house, we want to get the 'W'. Tough win, but a win's a win."

Deutmeyer paces Saints by J-Hawks

Jefferson Coach Jason Edwards thought his team's 59-45 loss at Xavier Tuesday night in a Mississippi Valley Conference girls basketball game was because the Saints showed more energy.

Xavier Coach Tom Lilly felt it was something all together different.

“It's called contagion,” he said. “That's a smart man's term. It means to have a collective influence on others. It's like the flu.”

Whatever it was, the game was decided when the Saints went on a 17-0 run over a five-minute span in the second quarter.

Howell's tirades spark Wash to title

Cedar Rapids Washington Coach Frank Howell had a couple of tirades in the first half Tuesday night that would have made Fran McCaffery blush, but his girls didn't mind and the tactic worked.

The eighth-ranked Warriors recovered from a slow start and defeated No.9 Kennedy, 64-55, to clinch at least a tie for the Valley Division title in the Mississippi Valley Conference.

Washington (16-4, 11-1) can win the outright Valley title Friday night against Jefferson at home.

Howell screamed at his players and slammed his clipboard to the floor during a timeout late in the first quarter after the Warriors committed a string of turnovers and fell behind 16-4. The veteran coach got red-faced again as he ripped into Dani Franklin between the first and second periods.
