Placeholder Image
ALBANY - The Comets got some big-time play from some unlikely role players, as Albany knocked off Argyle Tuesday, 58-44.

Boomer Detra returned to the lineup and had 13 points off the bench, all in the first half. Junior Trent Kuebli had a big 3-pointer in the second quarter and sophomore Ty Mauerman had 10 points.

"It was by far Mauerman's best game. His ten points were huge," Comets head coach Derik Doescher said.

Albany (8-13, 5-6 Six Rivers East) led by just a point after the first quarter, but an 18-3 run in the second gave the Comets some breathing room.

"We went on a nice run. It gave us some cushion. It was huge, too, because we had some guys in foul trouble," Doescher said.

Bryce Hulbert had 13 for Albany and Tyler Conley added nine. Kyle Geissbuhler led Argyle (1-20, 1-11) with 16 points and Nate Thomas had 14.

Barneveld 54,

Black Hawk 44

SOUTH WAYNE - The Warriors nearly pulled off the upset of the year Tuesday. Black Hawk (7-14, 3-8) led 14-3 after the first quarter and maintained the lead until midway through the second.

By halftime, Barneveld (17-4, 10-1), ranked No. 8 in the state in Division 4 by the Associated Press, trailed by just four at 29-25.

A 29-15 run by the Eagles in the second half put the Warriors back on the losing end.

T.J. Adams led Black Hawk with 21 points, including four 3s, and Cody Foster had 11. Logan Johnson scored 27 for Barneveld.

Pecatonica 44,

Juda 37

BLANCHARDVILLE - A big fourth quarter helped the Vikings break a 30-30 tie Tuesday.

Pecatonica (12-9, 7-4) found itself ahead 14-8 after the first quarter and 22-19 at halftime. An 11-8 third-quarter run by the Panthers (7-14, 3-8) evened things up with eight minutes to play.

Jeremy Meudt had 14 points to lead the Vikings, with teammates Tannar Johnson (nine), Jason Meudt (eight) and Devin Jeglum (seven) adding to the offense.

Bryan Bauman scored 12 to lead Juda, and Brandon Bauman and Joey Jordan each added 10.

Lakeside Lutheran 72, New Glarus 66

LAKE MILLS - The Glarner Knights couldn't catch up to Lakeside Lutheran Tuesday. After trailing 33-28 at halftime, New Glarus cut it to a single point headed into the fourth.

Ryan Bright led the Knights with 20 points. Tyler Kreklow had 14, including three 3s, and Cameron Jeglum added 12.

Lakeside Lutheran had four players in double-figures.
