BOYS BASKETBALL: Parkview Christian Manages to Win Handily Against Cedar Bluffs Without Starters

LINCOLN–(KFOR Feb. 2)–Class D2 top-ranked Parkview Christian has been a dominant team for most of the boys basketball season, enough that none of the starters suited up Thursday night against a three-win Cedar Bluffs ballclub and the reserves were able to get quality playing time.

However, the game early on looked to be competitive.  Parkview Christian managed to break away from a one-possession lead in the second quarter to race past Cedar Bluffs 66-20 at Parkview in a game heard on KFOR.

The Patriots (16-3) led by eight after the first quarter but the Wildcats got an early second quarter boost from guard Layne Willis to cut the deficit down to 16-13.  Parkview Christian relied on a full court press and then sprinted out to a 13-2 run the rest of the first half to take a 29-15 lead.

The run for the Patriots ended up being a 33-2 run through the end of the third quarter, as Cedar Bluffs didn’t score a field goal until about 3:20 left in the ball game, when guard Mason Christensen completed a three-point play.  Christensen would score again later for the only other field goal in the second half for the Wildcats, who dropped to 3-13 on the season.

Reserves Deshaun McGinnis, Tierrian Scott and Judah Sundermann each scored in double-figures in the game for Parkview Christian.  McGinnis wound up with a game-high 23 points, Scott with 17 points and Sundermann with 15.

Willis, who fouled out of the game, and Christensen each led Cedar Bluffs with eight points.
