No. 15 Washington girls top Saints

Anne Visser collected 20 points and five rebounds Friday night as the 15th-ranked Washington Warriors defeated Xavier, 70-53, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game at Washington.

The Warriors raised their records to 12-6 overall and 6-4 in the MVC. The Saints fell to 8-10 overall and 4-6 in the league.

Washington led at halftime, 37-18.

Payton Bruner contributed 12 points and six rebounds for Washington. Joniqua Clark stuffed the boxscore with 10 points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals. Jayla Johnson had 10 points and five rebounds. Jessica Puk contributed seven rebounds.



Burger nets 30 as Saints top Wash

Xavier boys basketball coach Ryan Luehrsmann rolled the dice with Mitchell Burger on Friday night and hit the jackpot.

Burger shook off early foul problems and poured in 30 points as the Saints pulled away from Washington, 74-55, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game at Xavier.

The Saints, who are ranked No. 2 in Class 3A, raised their overall record to 13-2 and climbed to 9-1 in the MVC.

Burger picked up his second foul with 2:08 left in the first period and sat for awhile, but Luehrsmann put him back in the game with 16 seconds left in the quarter and the Saints trailing 13-9.

Burger never left the floor again and played a terrific game with five 3-pointers and great leadership, especially after backcourt buddy Matt Mims left the game in the third quarter with a sprained ankle.
