Bohannon jumps to 5th in Metro scoring

Jordan Bohannon poured in 26 points and climbed to No. 5 in Metro career scoring Saturday as the Linn-Mar Lions topped Dubuque Hempstead, 64-58, in a Mississippi Valley Conference makeup game at Linn-Mar.

Bohannon has scored 1,386 points in his four-year career at Linn-Mar. He jumped ahead of Ryan Luehrsmann, who scored 1,375 points at Washington from 1993-96, and ahead of Jim Heck, who had 1,378 points at Washington from 1968-70.

Bohannon can catch Adam Spanich, who had 1,491 points for Regis from 1992-95, and Mark Enright, who scored 1,528 points for Kennedy from 1970-73, and move all the way into the No.3 spot all-time in the Metro.

There won't be enough games for Bohannon to catch his brother Jason Bohannon, who scored 1,679 points at Linn-Mar from 2004-06, or to catch all-time leader Marcus Paige, who had 1,701 points at Linn-Mar from 2009-12.

Bohannon made four 3-pointers Saturday, giving him 228 in his career. Jason Bohannon is the all-time Metro leader with 230, which means the family record probably will fall this coming week.

Riley Murphy and Beau Klostermann scored 10 points apiece Saturday as the Lions raised their records to 11-5 overall and 9-3 in the conference.

Ryan McDonough scored 17 points for Hempstead (7-10, 3-9).

HEMPSTEAD (58): Williams 0 0-0 0, L.Duax 4 0-0 12, C.Duax 2 5-6 9, McDonough 7 0-0 17, Crowder 4 1-5 10, Johnson 2 2-4 6, Sindberg 1 0-0 2, Cooksley 1 0-0 2. Totals 21 8-16 58.

LINN-MAR (64): Printy 2 4-5 8, Murphy 3 2-2 10, Phillips 1 0-0 2, Bohannon 8 6-6 26, Klostermann 4 2-2 10, Voves 1 0-0 3, Brandt 1 2-3 5. Totals 20 16-18 64.

Halftime - Hempstead 32, Linn-Mar 31. 3-point goals - Hempstead 8 (L.Duax 4, McDonough 3, Crowder 1), Linn-Mar 8 (Bohannon 4, Murphy 2, Voves 1, Brandt 1).

J-Hawks upset No. 6 Lions, 71-70

After coming close so many times this season, the Jefferson boys basketball team simply found a way Friday night.

Valentino Green grabbed a rebound off a missed Dennis McKinney free throw and banked it home just before the final horn to give the J-Hawks a stunning 71-70 Mississippi Valley Conference win over No. 6 Linn-Mar at the Jefferson gym.

Green's winning basket set off a wild celebration as players and fans mobbed the 6-foot-2 senior while the Lions stood near their bench in stunned silence.

"We didn't have a play on," Green said. "We wanted to make the shot, but I knew if he missed it I was going to get the rebound. I battled for it and I knew I had to go up strong.

"This win shows just how hard we've been working," he continued. "Since Christmas break, we've been getting a lot better and it showed tonight."

Jefferson coach Brandon Horman just stood back and watched the celebration unfold. The J-Hawks dropped a 3-point decision on Tuesday at Dubuque Wahlert and refused to back down against the highly-regarded Lions.

Ya gotta believe! Saints whip Lions

If you did not believe in the Xavier Saints before they played at Linn-Mar on Tuesday night, it's time to start.

The Saints put on a sterling performance and whipped the Lions for the third straight year at Linn-Mar, this time 68-63 in the Metro Game of the Year so far.

Xavier is ranked No. 2 in Class 3A by the Associated Press and Linn-Mar is ranked No. 6 in Class 4A, but this game belonged to the gritty Saints who have taken dead aim on the first Mississippi Valley Conference title in school history.

"It's a quality win," Xavier coach Ryan Luehrsmann said. "Anytime you beat a program that's as strong as they are -- and well-coached -- you have to feel good about it.

"I'm really happy with our kids. They just stuck together, showed some toughness and battled it out. That's what you have to do on the road in the MVC."

Xavier trailed 54-49 with less than four minutes remaining, but the Saints went on an 8-0 run and outscored the Lions 19-9 coming down the stretch to emerge with the victory.

Bohannon nets 35 as Lions win 90-87

It appeared to be personal between Jordan Bohannon and Cordell Pemsl.

The longtime AAU teammates met as high school opponents for one final time on Friday night and the future Iowa Hawkeye teammates put on quite a show.

Bohannon scored 35 points and Pemsl finished with 34, but in the end it was Bohannon and his Linn-Mar teammates holding on for a 90-87 Mississippi Valley Conference win over Pemsl and his mates from Dubuque Wahlert at Linn-Mar.

"Both of them did a great job of leading their teams," Linn-Mar coach Chris Robertson said. "You'd expect that. Both of them are four-year guys and they have a lot of pride.

"Those were the two tough match-ups," Robertson continued. "We had a hard time guarding him and they were going to have a hard time guarding Jordan."

There was also a scary moment for both players with just under to minutes remaining and Wahlert making a charge in an effort to erase what had been a 14-point Lion lead early in the fourth quarter.
