Beau Klostermann pumped in a career-high 26 points and Jordan Bohannon notched 23 after a slow start as the Lions knocked off the Prairie Hawks, 81-63, in an entertaining Mississippi Valley Conference game at the Prairie gym.
Bohannon did not score in the first 15 minutes of the game and had two personal fouls at that point, but he got hot after that and finished with five 3-pointers and slick drives to the hoop.
The Lions are accustomed to getting big nights from Bohannon, who leads Class 4A in scoring, but Klostermann more than doubled his pre-game norm of 11.7 points per outing. Klosterman pumped in four 3-pointers in the first half and had 18 points at intermission, helping the Lions take a 47-38 lead.
Klostermann, a 6-foot-4 senior, added eight more points in the second half. He's technically the starting center for the smallish Lions, but he's a versatile player who can score from all spots.
"That was a big game for him," Linn-Mar coach Chris Robertson said. "He was really in the groove and really shot it well. He's a tough match-up."
