- BOYS BASKETBALL: Norfolk Flexes Muscle To Beat North Star
By Kellan Heavican
A nine-minute scoring drought proved to be too much for Lincoln North Star as they fell to Norfolk 59-40 at The Swamp on Friday evening.
Sam Juracek hit a three in the late stages of the second quarter that gave North Star the 22-19 lead, but Juracek’s basket would be only points North Star found until 1:48 left in the third quarter.
During the span Norfolk would pile on over 20 points. Donovan Williams finally broke the drought making both free throws that cut the Panther lead to 47-24.
Norfolk outscored North Star 24-5 in the third period and was well on their way to their tenth win.
Juracek finished with 8, but Andrius Jones led the Gators (2-11) with 9. Logan Strom had a game-high 17 and Lane McCallum finished with 9.
