No. 1 Ankeny Centennial 53, Davenport North 51

Mekhi Jacobs' 3-point attempt rimmed out at the buzzer and top-ranked Ankeny Centennial (24-1) survived an upset bid from Davenport North (16-9).

Jayden Houston got the Wildcats within one on a three-point play with 41.5 seconds left, then again on a runner in the lane with 13.9 seconds left. After a Centennial free throw, the Jaguars used a foul to give with 3.0 seconds remaining and Jacobs' attempt from NBA distance didn't fall.

Micah Johnson led four Centennial players in double figures with 15 points. Preson Kelling had 12, Cody McCullough 11 and Jaron Crews 10.

Houston totaled 22 points on 10-for-15 shooting for North, which trailed 28-23 at halftime and 45-36 early in the fourth quarter.
