Lincoln North Star vs. Creighton Prep, 3.7

Lincoln North Star’s Donovan Williams (3) revels in the chants of the Gators' student section as time runs down in their 56-43 win over Creighton Prep in a Class A quarterfinal on March 7 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Williams scored 20 in the victory.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better two-game performance in Class A in recent memory than Donovan Williams' from last weekend.

The Lincoln North Star senior scored a school-record 44 points against Lincoln Northeast on Friday and followed with a 50-point showing against No. 1 Bellevue West on Saturday.

Here is more on Williams, who continues to receive a lot of Power Five recruiting interest:

Best high school sports moment so far: "Definitely my first game back from injury against Southeast. Because that’s when I realized that it was time for me to show everybody and show myself that I can do it."

Three go-to apps: "Snapchat, Clash of Clans, and Facebook because that’s what everybody from my hometown uses."

Favorite pro athlete: "Lebron James easily."

Pregame rituals or superstitions: "My only pregame ritual is that I usually go to the spot where I tore my ACL and just say thank you to God before I go play."

Favorite postgame snack: "Definitely a bag of chocolate donuts, with some Sunny D. lol."

Favorite practice drill: "3 on 2 chaser. Me and my teammates really use that time to talk trash to each other and have fun at the end of practice."
