Make or break week

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
Last week was a make or break week for the Hawkeye men’s basketball team.
They had to play three games because the Feb. 18 game at Indiana game was canceled.
They came into the week 19-7, 8-5 in the Big Ten.
Iowa needs to win a couple more to secure a top-four seed in the Big Ten Tournament. That way they won’t have to play four games in four days.
The Hawks traveled to Minnesota for their first game last Tuesday and came home with a 95-89 loss.

Tournament hopes high for women

It was senior night last Thursday and with a lot of help from Iowa’s lone senior, Theairra Taylor, the Hawkeyes took out Ohio State, 65-61.
What a great story and what a great player.
I don’t know how many athletes would come back after three knee surgeries, but Theairra did.
Johanna Solverson came back after two, but three is a major mental challenge.
“Thee” has missed 53 games in her career at Iowa, but hasn’t missed a start in two years.
The 5-11 senor from Minnesota scored 21 points against the Buckeyes and had four of the 15 Iowa steals.

Synergy and Affinity middle school show choirs triumph at Marion invitational

In addition, Synergy swept the caption awards– winning Best Vocals, Best Choreography, Best Band, Best Female Soloist (Ellie Hawkins) and Affinity’s Jude Johnson was named Best Male Soloist. This was Synergy’s second Grand Championship of the season.

Bobcats take title from Spartans

Solon sends Benton Community to free throw line 43 times in 72-63 loss

CEDAR RAPIDS– Two statistics say a lot about Solon’s showdown with Benton Community for the District 10 title Feb. 27.
The Spartans were called for 30 fouls, Benton Community 11.
And the Bobcats went to the free throw line 43 times, compared to 12 attempts for Solon.
That 27-6 advantage in points at the charity stripe went a long way in Solon’s 72-63 loss at Cedar Rapids Prairie.
“We just fouled too much,” said head coach Brand Randall.
The defeat not only ended the season for Solon’s boys, but also marked the final game for seven seniors and long-time basketball coach Randall.
