BEMENT – Cerro Gordo/Bement boys’ basketball team finished last week 2-2.
CERRO GORDO – The Cerro Gordo/Bement boys’ basketball team dropped a tough game to a much larger school Wednesday but battled back later in the week to win two Lincoln Prairie Conference matchups.
The 8th grade boys (3-2) started the week by pulling out ahead of a tight competition with Clinton with a final score of 36-33. Evan Wassom led the team with twenty three points, and Tyler Blythe followed with five.
Whether coming off a good year or a bad year, coaches will tell everyone before the season starts that each year has different players and last year’s record doesn’t matter.
A scorching 62 percent shooting percentage in the first half helped propel the Monticello High School boys' basketball team to a dominating 50-22 win over Clinton in the initial round of the Riverton regional on Monday night.
Monticello rallied from a 13-point deficit early in the fourth quarter to take a 1-point lead with three minutes remaining, but a couple mistakes and a travel call on the potential game-tying basket ended the Sages’ hopes in a 52-50 road loss to Paxton-Buckley-Loda on Friday.
