Linn-Mar 53, Cedar Rapids Washington 52

On the surface, a 37-percent shooting night isn’t great.

But it was better than it has been. And on this night, it was enough.

Keegan Krejca’s basket from the heart of the lane put Linn-Mar ahead with 45 seconds left, and the Lions held Cedar Rapids Washington scoreless for the final 3:20 to win Tuesday’s Mississippi Valley Conference girls’ basketball game.

“We needed that,” Linn-Mar’s Kaitlyn Brunson said. “We’re all hyped up. We wanted this one so bad.”
