West splits with CR Xavier

Trojans still undefeated, girls slide further behind

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– Neither (freezing) rain, nor sleet, nor slippery roads could keep the men’s and women’s varsity basketball double-dip against the Saints of Cedar Rapids Xavier from occurring Friday, Dec. 20, in the Iowa City West home gym.
It was a split night for West with the Women of Troy coming up short, 49-46, and the Trojans pounding the ball for a 75-41 win. Mikaela Morgan led the women with 16 points and nine rebounds while David Dileo led the way for the men with 19. Wyatt Lohaus had 18 points.
In the girls’ game, West led after the first period by one point, 10-9 and were knotted up in a 21-21 tie at the half before pulling ahead 31-28 going into the final period. A 21-point blitz by the Saints did in coach BJ Mayer’s team and dropped them to a 3-5 record while the Saints improved to 6-2.
In the marquee match-up, Steve Bergman’s crew was ahead 25-6 at the end of the first, and up 44-19 at the half in their quest to remain undefeated. The Trojans enjoyed a 66-32 advantage going into the final eight minutes. The win made it six in a row for the season, and extended the winning streak to 58.
On Tuesday, Jan. 7, the Women of Troy will face cross town rival City High while the boys are scheduled to entertain Dubuque Hempstead on Friday, Jan. 3.
