A pair of seniors, McCrea and McDermott are carrying the Hawks (5-0 overall, 3-0 MVC) through a dynamite December.

“We knew our role had to step up,” said McCrea, a Northern Illinois University signee (McDermott is bound for Western Illinois). “But as you saw tonight, a lot of other people are stepping up, and that’s going to help a lot moving forward.

“(Hailey) Cooper hit some big shots. (Natalie) Bennett made a couple of 3-pointers.”

They ended up getting two great looks: one planned and one unplanned. The unplanned one went in.

Caden Stoffer had it, a 3-pointer from the high wing with under a second remaining that gave the Cedar Rapids Prairie Hawks a 45-44 win Tuesday night over Linn-Mar at the Lions den.

The Class 4A eighth-ranked Hawks are 4-0 thanks to the junior guard’s clutch shot. Down two with 19 seconds left, Prairie perfectly worked a play for sophomore guard Jake Walter, whose open trey attempt at the top of the circle failed to fall.

The ball deflected off the rim left and toward the sideline out of bounds, only to be saved to a teammate by a leaping Jonathan Mullins. The ball was quickly kicked out to Stoffer, who fired.

Ballgame.
