Boys

Cedar Rapids Kennedy 56, 3A No. 10 Cedar Rapids Xavier 46

Xavier (3-3, 1-3 MVC) used a 13-0 burst to claim an 18-9 lead early in the second quarter, but Tyler Andrews scored 15 points during a 24-6 Kennedy explosion that gave the Cougars a 33-24 halftime lead. Andrews capped the burst with a 3-point heave from well beyond the half-court stripe that beat the halftime horn.

“It felt good, it looked good, so it went in,” Andrews said.

Andrews now averages 18.2 points per game this season for Kennedy (3-2, 2-2).

3A No. 2 Maquoketa 40, 3A No. 3 West Delaware 35

If the Maquoketa Cardinals are able to win their game Friday night, they will go into the holiday break with nine wins. Or as many as they had all last season.

That’s pretty good.

Class 3A’s second-ranked team has been more than pretty good the first month-plus of the boys’ basketball season. They slugged out a 40-35 win Tuesday night over No. 3 West Delaware in a game that wasn’t necessarily state tournament quality, though definitely state tournament intense.
