By Jeff Motz
WAVERLY---When it rains, it pours. That was a good thing for the Norris boys basketball team Thursday night. Back to back three-pointers from Dylan Bohlke and Jason Willet sparked a 20-2 second quarter run, as the Titans sprinted to a 60-38 win over Waverly at Waverly High School.
The shutout in the second quarter was spoiled, when Waverly's Erik Evans hit a pair of free throws with four seconds left. Norris led 34-13 at halftime. Waverly committed 11 first half turnovers and shot 26 percent from the field, thanks to Norris' full-court pressure.
A 13-4 run led by Brandon Janssen and a pair of threes from Nigel Stephenson and Josh Nunnally pulled Waverly to within 12 at 38-26 with 3:05 left in the third quarter.
Norris pulled away in the fourth quarter, out scoring the Vikings 15-12, to seal the win.
Jakson Reetz led Norris (4-4) with 15 points, while Bohlke added 14 points. Janssen led Waverly (3-4) with 15 points and Sam Tewes added 10 points in the loss.
