    Somehow, the final shot that signaled Wahoo’s 10th state basketball title — coming in a 45-42 triumph over Boone Central/Newman Grove — wasn’t at all what most fans anticipated.

    In likely the last state boys basketball final to be held at the Devaney Sports Center, Howells-Dodge captured the Class D-1 championship in its first year as a collaborative defeating Paxton 49-34 on Saturday night.

    It might have been tough to figure out a theme for Wahoo's student section at Friday's Class C-1 semifinal game, but the Warriors were definitely colorful, creative and variety-packed.

    Steve Spongberg has been asked whether he draws his plays directly on the basketball court in chalk so there is no clipboard around for him to break or toss in frustration. The answer is no.


    The Tigers reeled off nine straight points with less than four minutes to play, turning a four-point deficit into a five-point lead en route to a 38-36 come-from-behind victory over St. Mary's Friday night.
