Boys' Basketball: CIML and playoff breakdown for Saturday

By

Big Friday did not disappoint in terms of action, but close games were few and far between across the state. The six CIML teams advancing were the top six teams that had received first round byes.
Class 1-A winners will play again tonight, with state tournament spots decided for 2-A and 1-A.
Let’s bounce into CIML action, with notes from Friday and Saturday across the state below. The entire Saturday schedule can be found at the bottom of the page.
Friday’s CIML Review
Ankeny 64, North 51
Briefly: Teyontae Jenkins and Terrance Bush are fabulous playmakers. The Hawks stuck together as a team and forced the ball inside. Jay Schon led Ankeny with 16 points, and even though he plays alongside Ted Friedman, may be one of the CIML’s most underrated players.
Dowling 51, Lincoln 32
The slow-down, grind-it-out gameplan that Lincoln used to success at Waukee on Tuesday worked for 16 minutes at Dowling. The Maroons led just 16-14 at intermission, but coach Mike O’Connor’s team couldn’t wait any longer. Jon Wisnieski led the way with 15 points and 12 rebounds, but the third quarter blast off was more than enough for Dowling to prevent another Railsplitter upset.
Hoover 60, Indianola 34
Time to prepare gave the Huskies their third win over Indianola this season, and the easiest of the bunch. Malachi Canada, Chris King and Gatlat Toang all had at least 15 points. Hoover would do well to shoot like that against Urbandale on Tuesday.
Roosevelt 52, Johnston 41
Tate Larsen, Trey Burkhall, Chris Bennett and Mario Manuel all scored in double-digits for the Roughriders on an awful shooting night for Johnston star Jay Knuth. Guard Nick Stitzell had 19 points, but a rocky night ends an inconsistent season for the Dragons.
Urbandale 54, Southeast Polk 51
The league’s closest game of the night went Urbandale’s way thanks to a pair of late buckets by Denny Agic. Southeast Polk’s guard-heavy lineup gave the J-Hawks problems in the first meeting, but Tucker Kamman’s 16 points weren’t enough to get a win.
Valley 75, Ames 57
Good things happen when Valley can share the ball. The Tigers cruised to their 13th-straight win with Tanner Hinkle leading the team with 23 points. Peter Jok still had 22, but the team hit 11 3-pointers against the outgunned Little Cyclones.
Tuesday’s CIML Substate Finals
Substate 2–Roosevelt (17-5) vs. No. 5 Valley (19-3), at Southeast Polk
Substate 7–Dowling Catholic (17-5) vs. No. 8 Ankeny (18-4), at Waukee
Substate 8–No. 9 Hoover (18-3) vs. Urbandale (16-6), at Johnston
Around the State
— Bettendorf and Iowa City West will be the top two seeds at the 4-A state tournament should they both qualify. It’s hard to imagine they don’t — the Bulldogs won by 39 on Friday and the defending champion Trojans by 44.
— Linn-Mar’s state record streak of nine straight tournament appearances ended with a loss at Pleasant Valley last night. One of the more incredible feats in Iowa high school basketball.
— I billed the battle of the big men with Waverly-Shell Rock and Iowa Falls-Alden last night. I thought Casey Schlatter wouldn’t be the only Cadet to show up — he had 26 of his team’s 39 points. Klint Carlson and the Go-Hawks ended it before it started with a 22-4 first quarter.
— No. 7 Carroll won 10 straight and the Raccoon River title before running into Harlan. Two of Carroll’s last three games were against the Cyclones, and they lost both.
— Wins by Storm Lake St. Mary’s and Lawton-Bronson has set up tonight’s No. 2 vs. No. 3 game in 1-A.
— Can a suddenly red-hot Sigourney team put a scare into No. 1 Danville? Steven Soukup scored a 1-A season-high 45 points on Tuesday in the district semifinals for the Bears.
— Class 2-A’s only top ten substate final is in northwest Iowa, with Western Christian and Sheldon.
— I’ll be in West Des Moines catching Nodaway Valley and North Polk.
