01/03/2017 - BOYS BASKETBALL: Crete's Third Quarter Spurt Ices Waverly

By Jeff Motz

WAVERLY---Crete's half-court 1-3-1 zone trap put the clamps on Waverly right away in the second half, outscoring the Vikings 17-1 in the third quarter as the Cardinals earned a 51-34 win in boys basketball Tuesday night.

Combine defense and Carter Kent's game-high 22 points, that proved to be too much for Waverly to overcome in the second half.

No. 9 Crete (6-2) jumped out to a 26-12 second quarter lead before Waverly went on a 9-0 run to close the deficit to 26-21 at halftime.

During the third quarter run, Kent, Rhett Harms, Jonah Weyand, Klay Uher, Ethan Mach and Wyatt Bodfield all scored a combined 17 points that pushed the Cardinal lead to 43-22.  Tanner Wubbels had the lone point for Waverly (2-5) in the period.

Kent scored the final eight points Crete had in the fourth quarter.  Mach was the next highest scorer with nine points.

Waverly had three players (Merrick Deger, Dillon Ruelas and Reece Kroger) each score six points to pace the Vikings.


A strong second half helped the No. 10 Vikings roll past the Cardinals.  Taylor Cockerill scored 17 points, 12 came in the second half, including two pivotal three-pointers in the third quarter that gave Waverly a 28-23 lead.

Cockerill got six points, while Addie Schneider added six free throws in the fourth quarter to put the game away.

Crete was led by Morgan Maly's 12 points.
