The Warrior boys’ basketball team got off to a slow start last week but fired back with a pair of Upper Iowa Conference wins to close the week.

Sumner-Fredericksburg

South Winneshiek began the week Monday night, Jan. 29, against nonconference foe Sumner-Fredericksburg in Calmar. 

Despite a fast start, the Warriors suffered a 63-50 loss to the Cougars.

South Winn built an early 15-9 lead after the opening quarter, but it was outscored by a total of 37-18 over the second and third quarters.

The Warriors and Cougars each put up 17 points in the final quarter, but it was too little, too late for South Winn as it eventually fell.

Junior Levi Lukes, the leading scorer in the UIC, had a team-high 14 points in the loss. Fellow backcourt mate Hunter Todd led the way in the assist department with nine, while junior big man Cole Klimesh had a team-high 11 rebounds. Klimesh also had 11 points and three blocks.

On Senior Night, Jan. 25, the West Central girls’ basketball team came up short of an upset of the Class 1A No. 11 Janesville Wildcats, 47-41. 

There was a little extra motivation on Senior Night with it being the final home game for the five starting Blue Devil seniors. Senior Jalyn Brownell got West Central on the board first when her shot fake caused the defender to leave her feet, giving Brownell a clear path to the basket. Every time Janesville took the lead, West Central countered with a bucket of its own. Down, 4-3, senior Kenzie Squires hit a jumper to grab the lead back, 5-4. She then hit two 3-pointers in a row to tie the game, 8-8, and then give the Blue Devils the lead, 11-10. However, Janesville scored one more bucket before the end of the first quarter.
