Girls

5A No. 8 Cedar Rapids Prairie 46, 5A No. 3 Cedar Falls 41

After three quarters, the Cedar Rapids Prairie girls’ basketball team was teetering on the brink.

Class 5A No. 3 Cedar Falls held the eighth-ranked Hawks to just six third-quarter points and had opened up a six-point lead at 35-29, its largest of the game.

All it took was some stout fourth-quarter defense and one special offensive performer to rescue the Hawks.

Boys

Linn-Mar 58, Cedar Rapids Jefferson 55

They got away with one, and they know it. But the Linn-Mar Lions aren’t going to give it back.

A 58-55 win Tuesday night over Cedar Rapids Jefferson might not have been completely deserved, to tell the truth. The J-Hawks were better for the majority of this game.

But uncharacteristically horrible free-throw shooting from Jeff, and a 10-0 late fourth-quarter run helped Linn-Mar get out of Dodge (or Marion, in this case), with a win. A better feeling overall than this past Friday night, when the Lions lost late at Class 4A fifth-ranked Iowa City West.
