02/10/2006 - Waverly comes from behind, downs Elkhorn

By Jeff Motz
Lincoln Prep

WAVERLY-Matt Krumm has already proven to everybody that he can be Mr. Clutch in close basketball games this season. The 6-3 Waverly junior hit a game winner against then Class B third-ranked Seward last week and Friday night he helped the Vikings rally from being nine-points down to start the fourth quarter to defeat Elkhorn 58-53 at the Waverly gym. It was in the fourth quarter that Krumm, sophomore guard Andrew Palmer and reserve Andrew Bundy connected on five threes to help pull Waverly (10-7) ahead of Elkhorn late in the ballgame.

Despite a wide variety of turnovers between both teams throughout the contest, The Vikings got off to an early lead in the first quarter before the Antlers charged back to tie the game up at 11 after the first quarter. Elkhorn relied heavily on their much taller big men, 6-8 sophomore Josh Lynch and 6-7 junior Evan Lamprecht, as they helped the Antlers spark a 9-0 run in the 2nd quarter before leading at halftime 24-18.

Waverly slapped on a full-court press in the second half that took a while to kick into high gear, but managed to cut the deficit down to nine after three quarters with Elkhorn leading 39-30. The final period of the game was a much different story, as the Vikings connected on five three-pointers, including one from Palmer that was nearly 25-feet from the basket that put Waverly ahead 54-51 with 1:15 remaining. Elkhorn managed to get two free throws from Lamprecht, but Krumm and Jay Martin sealed the deal for the Vikings and held on for the win. Krumm led all scorers with 23 points, while Palmer finished with three treys and 13 points, and Martin added 10 points in the Waverly victory. Lamprecht led Elkhorn (4-12) with 15 points and Lynch finished with 10 points off the bench.
