Cedar Rapids-Iowa City Metro recaps and Gazette area scores from high school basketball games on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018.

Metro boys

Linn-Mar 58, 4A No. 7 Dubuque Hempstead 56

Linn-Mar got a road upset Friday night, taking down No. 7 Dubuque Hempstead, 58-56, at Dubuque.

The Lions were led by Trey Hutcheson with 18 points.

Campbell Mitvalsky had 15 points for Washington (3-7).

Alburnett 77, Cedar Valley Christian 27

The Pirates sank eight 3-pointers in a home victory.

Marion 60, Clear Creek Amana 37

Maybe the Marion boys’ basketball team is on to something here. A foolproof method to not losing close games is not playing any.

The Indians didn’t play one Friday night, rolling up lots of points early and whacking Clear Creek Amana, 60-37. This was a welcomed relief for a club that has lost five games this season by seven points or less and four by four or less.

Chase Zielke hit a quartet of 3-pointers and scored a game-high 21 points for the Indians.

Before the game, Bill McTaggart presented Tom Lilly with a bowling ball, a gag gift stemming from Lilly’s trademark shoes.

Then it was McTaggart’s team that continued to roll.

Class 5A top-ranked Iowa City High stymied 4A No. 12 Cedar Rapids Xavier with its quick hands, forcing 25 turnovers in a 72-46 Mississippi Valley Conference girls’ basketball victory Friday night at Ron Thillen Gymnasium.
