SPORTS SHORTS: Tigers fall to Blackhawks a second time
WEST BURLINGTON — After avenging an earlier loss to Iowa Western on Wednesday, the Marshalltown Community College men’s basketball team was looking to do the same against Southeastern Community College on Saturday evening in their ICCAC contest.
The Tigers were unable to return the favor to the Blackhawks, however, as MCC fell to Southeastern 83-74.
Marshalltown (15-9, 2-4) had two great performances from their starting bigs, as Mohamed Thiam had 20 points on 6-for-12 shooting and Bassirou Ndiaye went 6-for-9 for 17 points. Eduardo Lane also contributed eight points off the bench in the loss.
“We had opportunities all game long to create some distance but we were too sloppy with the ball,” MCC head coach Brynjar Bryjarsson said. “We were a little careless with the ball which led to costly turnovers at the end of the game. We will get back to work Monday and clean it up.”
Marshalltown returns to the court on Wednesday when it travels to Fort Dodge for a tilt against Iowa Central, starting at 7 p.m.
Rewoldt sets records in Tigers’ win
ELDORA — South Hardin senior Kevin Rewoldt set new single-game school records in points scored and rebounds on Friday night in the Tigers’ 77-64 win over NICL West Division opponent Grundy Center.
Rewoldt, the team’s only senior playing in South Hardin’s final home game, recorded a double-double of 32 point and 25 rebounds to lead the Tigers (9-11, 6-6). He also had two assists, three steals and three blocks in the win over the Spartans (2-17, 2-10).
Rewoldt’s 32 points are the third-most points scored by anyone in the NICL West this season, and his 25 rebounds are tied for the second-most by anyone in the state, second only to a 28-rebound mark by Tri-County’s Cameron Krumm.
Cade Spieker also had 20 points in the win over Grundy Center, while Garrison Tripp had 10 points off the bench.
