State girls' basketball: Maquoketa Valley tops IKM-Manning in Class 2-A

By

As the final seconds ticked off the clock, members of the Maquoketa Valley student section began chanting and waving goodbye to their opponents.
Many had to be thinking that it would be them leaving early.
The Wildcats (19-5) stunned No. 3 IKM-Manning (23-1) with a 65-57 victory in the quarterfinals of the Class girls’ state basketball tournament at Wells Fargo Arena on Tuesday.
“We were the underdogs coming in,” Maquoketa Valley forward Brooke Wooten said. “We have been the underdogs in all of our games that we have played so far to get here. “

The loss was the second this month for IKM-Manning which fell to No. Lawton-Bronson on Feb. 2. Another matchup appeared to be in the making with the two potentially meeting in the semifinals.
Then, came Maquoketa Valley.
Three Wildcats scored in double figures including Wooten who finished with a game-high 19 points.
“We just proved everyone wrong,” Wooten said.
Kaylee Blake scored 16 points for IKM-Manning.
IKM-Manning never could overcome a hot start from Maquoketa Valley, which made its first nine shots.
“I was surprised with how well that shot,” IKM-Manning coach Gene Rasmussen said. “I don’t think they’ve shot that well all season long. We didn’t make the stops when we needed to.”
