Metro Sports Report

U.S. Cellular could host boys hoops

Boys basketball could take center stage at the U.S. Cellular Center in early March.

Plans are in the final stages to hold Class 3A substate finals and Class 4A substate finals at the arena in downtown Cedar Rapids on March 2 and March 3, with doubleheaders both nights.

Officials from the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) and the U.S. Cellular Center hope to reach an agreement this week.

"We are aggressively pursuing this," Sharon Cummins, the executive director of the U.S. Cellular Center, said Tuesday. "I think it's looking really positive, but nothing has been set in stone yet.


Mustangs drop openers in Florida

LAKELAND, Fla. - The Mount Mercy University baseball team opened the 2015 season Monday by dropping a pair of tight games to 13th-ranked Southeastern University in an NAIA twinbill in Lakeland, Fla.

Southeastern pushed across a run in the bottom of the eighth inning to take the opener in extra innings, 6-5. Southeastern took the second game, 9-6.

Jack Dahm made his debut as Mount Mercy's new head coach in the doubleheader.

Christian Knox went 3-for-8 in the doubleheader for Mount Mercy (0-2) and drove in four runs.


Cedar Valley loses Hembera for season

Cedar Valley Christian senior Shelby Hembera has torn tendons in her left ankle and will be lost for the rest of the basketball season, Coach Craig Foote reported Monday morning.

Hembera was injured Jan. 16 in a game against Easton Valley in Preston when she attempted a shot and landed on another player's foot. The injury originally was diagnosed as a sprained ankle, but an MRI revealed the torn tendons.

Hembera may need surgery to repair the injury, according to Foote.

Hembera, an all-state forward, leads the state in scoring at 30.3 points per game. She also led the state in scoring last year as a junior.


Engle leads Metro scoring derby

Craig Engle of Marion has a slight lead over Adam McDermott of Xavier in the scoring derby for Metro boys basketball this week.

Engle is averaging 16.4 points and McDermott is a click behind at 16.3 as the season moves into the last week of January. Jordan Bohannon of Linn-Mar is third (15.4), Nic Uhlir of Linn-Mar is fourth (14.8) and Brendon Manning of Kennedy is fifth (13.7).

Tom Scroggs of Cedar Valley Christian is the Metro rebounding leader at 7.9 per game. Cole Murdock of Kennedy leads in assists (53) and Bohannon has the most 3-pointers (37).


Rylea Bennett wins Metro Spotlight Award

Cedar Rapids Jefferson senior Rylea Bennett is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Bennett is one of the top bowlers in the state for the J-Hawks. She carries a 198.4 game average and a 396.9 series average, giving her a slight lead in the Metro area over Rylee Blood of Prairie.

Bennett has been on a roll lately. She bowled a 234 game and 437 series Friday when Jefferson defeated Dubuque Wahlert at May City Bowl, and she had a 254 game and 438 series in a victory over Dubuque Senior Jan. 16 at Cherry Lanes in Dubuque. She also had a 424 series against Kenneday Jan. 6.
