BELLEVUE MARQUETTE 65, AR-WE-VA (WESTSIDE) 57 (OT)

After missing a pair of potential game-changing free throws, Blake Banowetz could have stood and sulked.
Instead, the Marquette Catholic sophomore looked for a way to celebrate.
Banowetz’s layup in the closing seconds of regulation forced overtime, and Marquette went on to upset fourth-ranked Ar-We-Va of Westside 65-57 in a Class 1-A state girls’ basketball quarterfinal Monday at Wells Fargo Arena.
“I had to pay my team back in a certain way,” Banowetz said. “They fought the whole way, and I just couldn’t give up on them.”
The win propelled Marquette (17-6) into Wednesday’s semifinals, where it will face another highly ranked opponent: No. 2 Newell-Fonda (23-2).
Monday’s win didn’t come without tension. The Mohawks let a 16-point lead slip away.
Ar-We-Va (21-4) trailed until taking its only lead of the game with 31 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter as Megan Ehlers’ 3-pointer gave the Rockets a 52-50 lead.
Banowetz was fouled on Marquette’s next possession and stepped to the foul line with 9 seconds left with a chance to tie the score.
The young forward missed both free throwns but quickly redeemed herself, snaring a rebound off a miss by teammate Sarah Lempe. Banowetz popped in a layup with 5 seconds left to force overtime at 52-52.
“I felt so bad and that would have been terrible to go home like that,” Banowetz said.
Marquette made five of its last six free throws in the final minute of overtime to secure the win.
“When they were storming back on us,” Marquette coach Jim Kettmann said, “we just keeping saying ‘OK, we have the lead, let’s just relax.’ ”
Danielle Bender scored 22 points and grabbed 17 rebounds for Marquette.
“You just don’t want to go out with a loss when you’re out there,” Bender said. “We’re all in this together.”
Paige Danner led Ar-We-Va with 22 points.
The loss ended a season of heartbreak that began with assistant coach Larry Siebert taking over the team after coach Davey Kock passed away in September from a rare degenerative brain disorder called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
Kock guided the Rockets to state tournament appearances in 2011 and 2012.
“It was definitely tough at the beginning,” Ehlers said. “He’s been with us every game. He’s been with us, and he’s been on our side. He’s cheered for us the whole time.”

BURLINGTON NOTRE DAME 60, COLO-NESCO 47

Morgan Myers looked around at her new surroundings and took in the sight of fans filling into Wells Fargo Arena.
The Burlington Notre Dame senior liked what she saw.
Myers could be seeing more it after the fifth-ranked Nikes defeated seventh-ranked Colo-Nesco, 60-43 in a Class 1-A quarterfinal at Wells Fargo Arena on Monday.
“We don’t normally have crowds this big,” said Myers who scored nine points.
“I hope it gets bigger. I like it.”
Momentum is building for the Nikes who are making the most out of their first trip to the girls’ state basketball tournament.
Taylor Hickey scored a game-high 17 points while Riley Kilbride added 12 for the Nikes (22-3) who made themselves right at home in their first tournament game.
The key, Myers said, was prepping like it was another regular season game.
“We just told ourselves that it was another game,” Myers said. “Just like we were playing at home.”
Haley Stoeffler scored 16 points and Caitlyn Riese added 14 rebounds for Colo-Nesco (23-3).
“We had a great season,” Colo-Nesco coach Wayne Cafferty said. “We just ran against a team that was a little bit better than us today.”

CENTRAL LYON 67, EARLHAM 43

The Earlham and Central Lyon girls’ basketball teams have spent the season paving a road of success for future teams.
For Central Lyon, the journey continues. At Earlham, it reached its end, this season.
Top-ranked Central Lyon’s record-setting season continued after a 67-43 win over Earlham in the Class 1-A quarterfinals at Wells Fargo Arena on Monday.
“We had confidence coming in,” Central Lyon guard Lexi Ackerman said. “When we get a win like that, it just makes us even more excited for the next game.”
The Lions (24-2), making their first girls’ state basketball tournament appearance in school history, advance to Thursday’s semifinal.
With the victory, Central Lyon ended Earlham’s dream season that reached its most memorable moment when the Cardinals clinched a spot in the state tournament for the first time since 1981.
“It’s just kind of cool that we haven’t done that is so many years,” Earlham forward Abbey Murphy said. “It’s been an amazing year.”
The year came to an end as Central Lyon overcame an early first-half, double-digit deficit in the second quarter, outscoring the Cardinals 20-5.
They never let off the pedal in the second half.
“Once everything gets going, we’re pretty unstoppable,” said Ackerman who scored a game-high 25 points and grabbed 16 rebounds.
Her twin sister, Kelsey, added 12 points while nursing a torn ACL. The injury, which caused Kelsey to miss several games, isn’t’ keeping out now.
The senior opted to hold off on surgery until after the season so she could help her team in tournament time.
“I can move pretty well up and down the court,” Kelsey said. “It’s just the cutting.”
Murphy grabbed 13 rebounds and scored 10 points.
“The little things just got us,” Earlham guard Kristen Weber said. “It was really awesome just being here.”
Now that they’re here, Central Lyon has more work to do.
“(We’re) showing everyone that we’re not done yet and we’re going to continue on and hopefully make it to that championship game,” Lexi Ackerman said.
