Xavier High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Bohannon breaks Metro 3-point record

Could it be that the last of the Bohannon boys is the best of the bunch?

Linn-Mar senior Jordan Bohannon, the youngest of the four basketball brothers, scored the Lions’ game-ending nine straight points Tuesday night to preserve an 82-76 win over Xavier in a barn-burner of a battle in the Saints' gym.

He tallied 13 of his game-high 33 points (11 for 19 from the field) in the fourth quarter as the short-handed but gritty Saints made a mad-dash pull of a late comeback.

After Xavier sophomore Jackson Joens nailed a 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to bring his team within two points, Bohannon calmly shut the door by swishing four free throws in a row.

"Obviously, Jordan is the guy we wanted to have the ball in his hands,” Linn-Mar coach Chris Robertson said. “The difference in the game was free throws down the stretch. He made some key shots.”

Besides six straight charity shots in the last minute, the sharp-shooting point guard also canned a 3-pointer with 2:20 left to out put the Lions ahead by seven. It was his third trey of the night and the 231st of his four-year career, breaking the Metro mark of 230 held by his older brother Jason.

"It was a fun game all around,” said Bohannon, whose baby face belies a killer instinct. “Very competitive. Coach (Ryan) Luehrsmann always gets his guys ready to play.”

Saints drop battle of No. 2's to West

IOWA CITY – Playing games on back-to-back days always presents a number of challenges.

Especially when the opponent on the second day is the vaunted Iowa City West boys basketball team on its home floor.

That was the challenge facing Xavier Saturday and it proved too much as West defeated the Saints, 72-55, at the West High gymnasium. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was postponed until Saturday because of adverse weather conditions.

The game matched a pair of clubs that are ranked No. 2 in the state by the Associated Press, with Xavier No. 2 in Class 3A and Iowa City West the co-No. 2 in Class 4A.

Both teams played Friday night – Xavier fell to Waterloo West 97-86 in Waterloo –  so there were less than 24 hours to recover for Saturday’s game.

Xavier also was without starting point guard Matt Mims because of an ankle injury.

“I think fatigue was a part of it tonight,” said Xavier coach Ryan Luehrsmann. “I think for us, missing our starting point guard was huge.
