J-Hawks net special win in 2OTs

The heroes for the Cedar Rapids Jefferson basketball team posed for a picture Friday night after the J-Hawks topped Washington, 58-50, in double-overtime.

There was Jarrod Uthoff, who joined Jefferson's 1,000-point club with another big outing. There was Tyler Meiborg, who played a key role for the J-Hawks with his scoring and leadership. And there was 6-year-old Max Meiborg, Tyler's nephew, who is a cancer survivor and a courageous young boy.

Max was one of the honorary ballboys for this special Coaches vs. Cancer affair, and he was extremely proud of his uncle and Uthoff after Jefferson's victory.

The feelings were mutual.

There's more to the game than basketball

There's more to high school basketball in the Metro than practicing and playing games. Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Jefferson have now led the way to join the Coaches vs. Cancer crusade with fundraising attached to basketball.

In fact, the program started Jan. 14 with the Kennedy-Jefferson boys game as the schools competed to see who could raise the most money for the Linn County Cancer Society and its Relay for Life program, chaired by volunteer Dave Martin.

Through raffles, the selling of T-shirts and the general solicitation, the J-Hawks and Cougars raised $4,200. This week is Jefferson and Washington's turn. One of their projects has been a dance marathon, and they will donate the proceeds from their activities and autographed basketballs by the high school players to the cancer society (see above story).

Stokes outscores Prairie

Linn-Mar’s Kiah Stokes, the state’s leading scorer, single-handedly outscored the entire Prairie team Friday night with a 30-point performance as the No. 2 Lions trounced the Hawks, 54-28.

In a face-off between the Metro’s top and bottom teams, Prairie (4-12, 3-10) remained within striking distance at the half, trailing Linn-Mar 25-20. But the Hawks were hamstrung in the second half and Lions charged ahead, outscoring them 29-8.

Prairie senior Mackenzie Blaha hit three treys to lead the Hawks with nine points. Talented  freshman Madison Dellamuth, who leads the team in scoring, assists and field goal percentage, managed only a single bucket.

Mykaela Brandt and Kailee Karr each scored six points for the Lions (17-1, 12-1).

Prairie hosts Class 3A No. 2 Mount Vernon on Saturday at 6:30. Linn-Mar takes on Xavier at home next Friday.
