North Scott 61, Muscatine 54: Muscatine's Joe Wieskamp became the Mississippi Athletic Conference's all-time leading scorer for boys basketball Tuesday night, but North Scott spoiled the celebration.

Cortavious Seales had a team-high 21 points while Corvon Seales and Gary Morgan each recorded a dozen points in the road victory. North Scott (1-1, 1-0) used a 24-point third quarter to seize control.

Wieskamp, an Iowa signee, passed former Davenport North standout Ricky Davis for the all-time mark in the second quarter. He finished with a game-high 33 points and has 1,643 for his career.

"A lot of people have been talking about it and been in my ear about it,” Wieskamp said. “'Like telling me tonight’s the night.’ I wasn’t really worried about it. I knew if I went out there and performed it was something I could accomplish.

“But at the end of the day I wanted to get a win, and we weren’t able to accomplish that so I got a lot of work left to do.”

Davenport North 79, Burlington 59: North built a 22-point advantage by halftime and never was threatened in its conference opener at Burlington. The Wildcats improved to 2-0.

Sterling 62, Alleman 57 (OT): Andrew Barrett had 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists in an overtime setback.
