Every year, the National Weather Service examines conditions such as the snow pack and how much water it contains, soil moisture and much of the ground is frozen and determines the chances of major flooding.

What did it find?

\u201cIt\u2019s pretty much a sure bet we\u2019ll get flooding in the next three months,\" said Jessica Brooks, hydrologist with the National Weather Service, Davenport. \u201cIn the Quad-Cities on the Mississippi River, in a normal year we have about a 57 percent chance to reach flood stage. This year, we have greater than 95 percent chance of the Mississippi reaching flood stage in the Quad-Cities.\"

Brooks, who focuses on rivers, tributaries, flash floods \u201cand pretty much anything that deals with water,\" said NWS comes up with statistical probabilities of the river reaching certain levels in the next three months. Across the whole Quad-City area, there is an above-average chance of flooding.

Saturated conditions in the soil means there isn\u2019t much space for the ground to absorb rain. Basins are saturated, so \u201cAny rain that falls Is going to all be into the rivers. That gives a much higher probability for the rivers to be able to rise,\" she said.

\u201cWe\u2019re looking at a pretty cold pattern here for the next months,\u201d she said.

Eventual levels will be highly dependent on how the snow melts.

\u201cA slow melt might mean a peak at low and moderate flood stages,\u201d she said. \u201cA fast melt could be accompanied by heavy springtime rains.\u201d

A flood watch for the Quad-Cities is already in effect through early next week.

The Wapsipinicon River is expected to reach flood stage Monday in DeWitt, and the Rock River at Joslin will reach flood level Tuesday, Brooks said.\u00a0

\u2022 For the Mississippi, flood stage is 15 feet at the Rock Island gauge, which was 7.3 feet on Friday.

\u2022 The Rock River flood stage is 12 feet at both Moline and Joslin. The Rock measured 11.7 feet at Joslin and 10.8 feet in Moline on Friday.

\u2022 The flood stage on the Wapsi, which measured 7.8 feet Friday, is 11 feet at DeWitt.

\u201cThis weekend, with the rain coming, it\u2019s possible we could get to flood stage at the lower end of the Rock,\u201d Brooks said.

Public works crews are ready

In the meantime, Quad-City public-works crews are prepared to deal with whatever water comes their way.

\u201cThere\u2019s not a lot of prep stuff that we need to do,\u201d said Rodd Schick, municipal services general manager, Moline.

Moline is fortunate when it comes to flooding, he said. \u201cThere are gate valves in the storm sewers that get closed\u201d during floods, he said, in the downtown area were the ground elevation is relatively low.

\u201cAs it rains and snow and ice melt, it\u2019s going into the storm system instead of flowing into the river via gravity.\u201d

\u201cWe used to have to do sandbagging,\u201d said Schick, who has been with the city 18 years. \u201cThat\u2019s no longer necessary because of the construction and work done there at the Interstate 74 area.

\u201cit\u2019s been elevated. That has taken care of that issue.\u201d

Now when there\u2019s a flood, \u201cWe pretty much need to do a little bit of sandbagging near Western Illinois University campus on 34th Street,\u201d he said. \u201cWe\u2019re talking near-record type flooding events when we have to do that.\u201d

The city now has permanent pumps in some spots, along with portable pumps that are used as needed.

\u201cWhen it gets over flood stage, we get some things on old River Drive, near 55th Street, old River Drive on Ben Butterworth, and low spots in front of the Western Illinois University campus in Moline,\u201d he said. \u201cThat\u2019s low there \u2013 there\u2019s actually a little drainage way there.\u201d

Nicole Gleason, public works director, Davenport, said flooding in Davenport usually starts in the Wapello-Concord and Credit Island areas. Crews that respond to floods are primarily about 60 street and sewer workers, she said.

\u201cWe don\u2019t get super-excited when (the Mississippi) is below 16 feet,\u201d she said. When the river rises to 17 or 18 feet, crews begin to set up temporary flood barriers, she said.

Fortunately, the forecast usually provides three days of advance warning. \u201cWe can usually have temporary flood barriers set up in two days or even a day and a half,\u201d she said.

\u201cIt really is about being prepared,\u201d Schick said.

Quad-Cities have 95 percent chance of major flooding this spring

The presiding judge over Stanley Liggins\u2019 fourth murder trial said Friday she will file a written ruling on whether prosecutors can tell jurors about a prior sexual abuse conviction involving a then-9-year-old Rock Island County girl.

Scott County prosecutors say his arrest in that abuse case came more than a month before the burned body of 9-year-old Jennifer Lewis of Rock Island was discovered in a field near Jefferson Elementary School in Davenport.

Lewis was sexually abused and strangled before her body was doused in gasoline and set on fire on Sept. 17, 1990, prosecutors say.

Liggins, 57, an acquaintance of Lewis' mother and stepfather, is charged with one count of first-degree murder in Lewis\u2019s death.

According to trial testimony, Lewis asked her mother if she could go to a nearby liquor store to buy Liggins a pack of gum with a dollar he had given her earlier that night.

He was tried, convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 1993 and 1995. Both convictions were overturned and new trials were ordered.

His third trial began in late August in Black Hawk County, where they trial had been moved due to pretrial publicity. Judge Marlita Greve, chief judge of the Seventh Judicial District, declared a mistrial after jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict.

His next trial is slated to begin March 12 in Black Hawk County.

Prosecutors in 2017 and during Liggins\u2019 third trial asked Greve to allow them to introduce testimony and evidence of his prior sexual abuse conviction. The judge denied the motions, saying that the evidence was too prejudicial and would inflame the jury.

Assistant Scott County Attorney Julie Walton filed a motion asking the judge to reconsider her earlier rulings on Jan. 31.

During a nearly hourlong hearing, Walton argued the evidence is needed to show Liggins had intent and motive to kill Lewis.

She pointed to the May 1991 trial testimony of the girl in the Rock Island County case, who said Liggins\u2019 had fondled her in his Milan apartment after she asked him for a washcloth to clean up juice that spilled on her leg.

The girl screamed, hit Liggins, ran out of his apartment and told a neighbor what happened.\u00a0

He was convicted in that case and sentenced to seven years in prison.

\u201cThat little girl got away,\u201d Walton said. \u201cThat little girl got to talk, that little girl got to get the attention of the police and the attention that that little girl brought to the crime that was perpetrated against her caused the defendant to be arrested. And at the time of Jennifer\u2019s murder, the defendant was on bond pending that case. That goes to motive, that goes to why Jennifer was not only sexually abused, but she was killed.\u201d

Walton argued the evidence will further allow prosecutors to rebut the defense\u2019s argument that police \u201crushed to judgement\u201d when they zeroed in on Liggins as a suspect.

Liggins\u2019 attorney, Black Hawk County Public Defender Aaron Hawbaker, argued identity has always been the key issue in this case and nothing has changed since Greve\u2019s earlier rulings \u201cto upset the balance that the court found that the evidence that the state intends to introduce is substantially more prejudicial than it is probative.\u201d

He argued prosecutors failed to establish there is a need for the evidence in light of other available evidence and pointed to the fact that prosecutors twice before were able to win a conviction without that evidence.

Hawbaker said there was no need to add this evidence to rebut the defense\u2019s contention that \u201cthey got the wrong guy.\u201d

\u201cThat\u2019s been the argument for\u202629 years,\u201d he said.

The piece is a functional bowl with pink stripe and will feature a \"30\" on 75 pieces sold in the Quad-Cities to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Komen Quad-Cities Race for the Cure.

Suggest a name for the sculpture, and an inspirational quote, and send that with your name, phone number, e-mail and city to iowa.info-komen.org by noon Tuesday, Feb. 26. The winner will be announced by Friday, March 1, when pre-sales of the sculpture begin.

The entrants who provide the chosen name and quote will receive a free sculpture.

Red Dress Run raises over $17,000

At its 9th annual Red Dress Run held Feb. 16, the Quad-City Hash House Harriers-Dirty Pirate Chapter raised a record $17,500 for the Friendly House of Davenport.

In the event, all participants-male and female-wore red dresses to draw attention to the charity event. The Friendly House of Davenport offers a variety of services to respond to the needs of children, families and seniors, including preschool, emergency assistance and senior services.

Around 250 participated in the run.

\"The Red Dress Run is not so much a run as a gathering of people with good senses of humor, adventurous spirits and charitable hearts ... and red dresses,\" Quad-City Hash House Harriers-Dirty Pirate Chapter founder Nathan Tackett said in a press release.

Consumer perceptions of CVS/Aetna merger

A J.D. Power Pulse survey has revealed positive and negative customer perceptions of the CVS/Aetna merger.

Forty-five percent of participants said they would probably or definitely receive primary care at a CVS clinic. Fifty-five percent, in contrast, said they would not or definitely not receive primary care.

In addition, the survey found younger patients and privately insured were most receptive of the merger.

UnityPoint Health and GROWTH receive $10,000

Non-profit organization GROWTH has chosen the Robert Young Center among other local efforts to receive a charitable contribution.

The $10,000 donation, presented to the Robert Young Center and UnityPoint-Health, will be applied to the Behavioral Health Services Fund established by the Trinity Health Foundation. The foundation improves the lives of patients and their families through patient programs, community education, staff development and facilities for behavioral health care.

The Forest Preserve District has received a $400,000 grant to install a new playground and RV campground at Loud Thunder Forest Preserve in Illinois City.

Commissioner Kai Swanson announced the grant Tuesday night at the monthly meeting of the Forest Preserve Commission.

\u201cThis is going to be a very big game-changer for the improvements that this board has with great foresight already approved at Loud Thunder,\u201d Swanson said to the Commission.

\"Loud

A new $400,000 grant from the\u00a0Illinois Department of Natural Resources will support a new RV campground and ADA-accessible playground at Loud Thunder Forest Preserve, in Illinois City.

In 2017 the Commission issued $2.1 million in bonds to improve camping facilities at Loud Thunder and another $1.9 million to repair the dam and spillway on Lake George, the 167-acre man-made lake at the center of Loud Thunder.

The new grant will support the creation of a 35-site, full-service RV campground in the Deere Haven area, near Loud Thunder Road.

\u201cWe\u2019ll now be able to do additional improvements that we weren\u2019t able to do before,\u201d said Jeff Craver, Forest Preserve District director. \u201cThe campground improvements and playground were estimated at a $1 million project, and now we have $1.4 million for it.\u201d

The new, roughly $400,000 surplus will go toward improvements to an equestrian and overfill-RV campground area, Craver said.

Swanson said the equestrian campground is the only facility of its kind around the Quad Cities.

Construction on the campground and ADA-accessible playground will begin later this year, with a grand opening scheduled for the summer of 2020.

The grant was awarded by the Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) program through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The $400,000 award represents the maximum-possible amount awarded to development or renovation projects, according to the website.

\u201cWhat\u2019s very important about this OSLAD grant from the state of Illinois is that it gives the professional team in the Forest Preserve District the chance to take advantage of their opportunities and to put in the extra touches that will take what\u2019s already promising to be a tremendous project to the next level,\u201d Swanson added after the meeting.

Loud Thunder, a 1,621-acre preserve located at 19406 Loud Thunder Road, Illinois City, dates to 1944.\u00a0Lake George was created in 1967 when the Big Branch Creek was dammed.

\u201c[Loud Thunder] has been maintained \u2014 it\u2019s not that we\u2019ve fallen completely behind on maintenance \u2014 but for a major improvement project you need to go back to 1980,\u201d Swanson said.

Also on Tuesday, the Forest Preserve Commission approved two bids to improve facilities at the Niabi Zoo: one $171,000 bid for new cat house transfer doors, and an $86,500 bid for a new primate enclosure project.

The projects have a $230,000 budget. Zoo Director Lee Jackson said the remaining $32,500 will be provided by the Niabi Zoological Society, a non-profit group that raises funds for the zoo. \u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s a major improvement to the space, and it\u2019s going to occupy previously unused space by the giraffe exhibit,\u201d Jackson said about the new primate enclosure.

The project will be completed by mid-summer, he added, and partially finished when the zoo reopens on April 13.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority on Friday approved a $1.1 million incentive package for Cobham, a manufacturer of aerospace defense equipment, for the company\u2019s planned $68 million investment into its Davenport plant and the expected creation of 150 high-paying jobs.

Included in the package are a forgivable loan for $400,000 and three tax credits amounting to nearly $700,000. The moneys were awarded to the company under a state program that aims to encourage the creation of high wage jobs.

Earlier this week, Cobham officials publicly announced plans to build up the decades-old manufacturing facility beginning this year. Most of the money for the upgrades is earmarked for a $37 million expansion of Cobham\u2019s research and development capabilities. The second-biggest chunk is going toward manufacturing machinery and equipment at a cost of $22.8 million.

The company also expects to spend a little more than $4 million remodeling its existing building at 2734 Hickory Grove Road. Company officials have said they want to create space to accommodate as a many as 1,300 employees.

Building renovations are expected to be finished in 2021.

For the Quad-Cities, the 150 added jobs \u2013 including dozens of engineers \u2013 would make Cobham an even bigger regional employer than it already is. Company officials say the Davenport plant already employs more than 930 people, a headcount that has risen substantially in recent years along with an overall business growth of 20 percent.

The minimum pay for the new jobs will be $19.30 per hour, or roughly $40,000 per year for full-timers. In 2017, the median income for a Davenport household was a little more than $49,000 per year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Meanwhile, Davenport\u2019s elected officials are expected next week to give the company a 10-year tax exemption on any improvements made that increase the plant\u2019s assessed property value. That incentive, expected to save the company about $200,000 total, satisfies a state-mandated requirement for cities to partially match grants given by the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Cobham, which is based in England, has owned the manufacturing plant since 2003. But the company has been part of the community since the early 1950s, formerly called Bendix Aviation.

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 76-70 overtime victory over Indiana:

--So, let\u2019s see, Iowa had won nine of its previous 12 games. Indiana had lost 11 of the past 12. The Hawkeyes defeated the Hoosiers on the road just two weeks earlier. So when the two teams met again Friday night in front of the second sellout crowd of the season at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, it should have been an Iowa cakewalk, right? Wrong. Never attempt to apply logic to Big Ten basketball. It\u2019s like that box of chocolates Forrest Gump used to talk about. You never know what you\u2019re going to get.

--Jordan Bohannon admitted he snuck a peek at the stat sheet at halftime and saw he was a minus-11. It sounds as though he always looks at that number and since the score was tied at the time, he found it somewhat jarring. \u201cVery jarring,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cIt almost made me doubt my abilities for awhile.\u2019\u2019 Then he smiled. Bohannon, who had not yet scored at halftime, made up for it later, hitting a game-tying 3-pointer with 27.3 seconds left in regulation and three more 3s in overtime.

--That plus-minus statistic is a little hard to understand and sometimes feels as though doesn\u2019t really tell the truth. Bohannon finished at minus-7. Connor McCaffery, who had one pretty untimely turnover and didn\u2019t really seem to have an exceptional game, was plus-24. Maishe Dailey, who didn\u2019t do anything very noticeable, was plus-14.

--Senior Nicholas Baer, who was plus-10, only scored five points in his next-to-last game in Carver-Hawkeye Arena but made his presence felt in a lot of other ways. He led both teams with 10 rebounds and blocked three shots, including an especially big one on Juwan Morgan with 1:49 to go in regulation. He had at least one other block that appeared to be very clean but he was called for a foul.

--Luka Garza snapped out of his recent slump in a big way and carried the Iowa offense through the first 10 minutes before getting into foul trouble again. He had scored 16 points in his previous four games but finished with 16 in this one to go along with nine rebounds. In the final tense seconds of overtime, he got switched onto alleged lottery pick Romeo Langford defensively and forced Langford to launch a contested 3-pointer that missed.

--The frustration has to be unreal in Bloomington, where the locals aren\u2019t used to seeing the Hoosiers so close to the bottom of the Big Ten standings. Indiana actually is a pretty good basketball team but it\u2019s looking more and more like it will be a bottom-four seed in the Big Ten tournament. The Hoosiers played very well defensively Friday, especially on the perimeter, and played very, very hard in the face of a hostile crowd. Head coach Archie Miller felt his team played well enough to win the game but instead it lost for the 12th time in 13 games.

--This may not be the last these teams see of one another. It\u2019s very, very likely that Iowa will get the No. 6 seed in the Big Ten tournament and it wouldn\u2019t be surprising to see Indiana be the No. 11. If that happens and the Hoosiers defeat the No. 14 seed (most likely Northwestern), the Hawkeyes and Hoosiers would see each other again on March 14 in Chicago.

--Prior to Fran McCaffery\u2019s postgame news conference, it was announced that McCaffery would only answer questions regarding Friday\u2019s game and would not respond in any way to the suspension of broadcaster Gary Dolphin earlier in the day. Dolphin, who likened Maryland center Bruno Fernando to King Kong in a fairly innocuous postgame summation after Tuesday\u2019s loss to the Terrapins, has been suspended for the remainder of the season. Iowa said a vague and shallow two-sentence statement that was issued Friday afternoon would be its only comment on the matter.

IOWA CITY \u2014 This is getting monotonous.

In a spine-tingling, heart-thumping, pulse-pounding sort of way.

For the fourth straight game, the Iowa basketball team played a game that went down to the final seconds and for third time in that span they came away victorious.

After being held in check most of the night, Jordan Bohannon hit three 3-point field goals in overtime and the 21st-ranked Hawkeyes held on to defeat Indiana 76-70 on Friday night at sold-out Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Bohannon, who scored 25 points and performed assorted late-game heroics in a 77-72 win over the Hoosiers just two weeks ago, did not score in the first 29 minutes Friday but finished with 17 points.

All but one of his five 3-pointers came in the last minute of regulation and in overtime.

The junior guard\u2019s latest heroics left even Iowa coach Fran McCaffery searching his memory to think of a similar string of clutch efforts.

\"I\u2019ve been doing this awhile and I haven\u2019t seen that much,\" McCaffery said.

\"He just keeps grinding,\" he added. \"Give Indiana credit. They fought hard. Their defense was really good for the entire game, on him and on everybody else. We just kept fighting.\"

Luka Garza, who broke out of his recent slump with 16 points, smiled when asked about Bohannon\u2019s penchant for clutch plays.

\u201cIt\u2019s a pleasure to play with a guy like that, man,'' he said. \"He can turn it on at any moment. Even when he was struggling a little bit, it was late game and everyone in the huddle said \u2018We need to get a stop and get the ball to Jordan.\u2019\u2019\u2019

Indiana coach Archie Miller could be forgiven if he\u2019s seen enough of Bohannon for this season.

\"You\u2019ve got to give credit to Jordan Bohannon,\" Miller said. \"He\u2019s having an incredibly clutch year. How many times he does that for them is just amazing.\"

Tyler Cook led Iowa (21-6, 10-6 Big Ten) with 18 points. Senior Nicholas Baer made several key defensive plays down the stretch and finished with 10 rebounds and three blocked shots.

Juwan Morgan led five players in double figures for Indiana (13-14, 4-12 Big Ten) with 15 points while adding five rebounds six blocked shots and three steals. The Hoosiers lost for the 12th time in the past 13 games.

Bohannon made a 3-point field goal with 27.5 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the score at 63-63, and he kept firing in the overtime period, hitting one with 2:47 to go after a Garza rebound and another with 2:00 remaining.

Morgan scored on a putback to chop Iowa\u2019s lead to 72-70 in the final minute of overtime, and the Hawkeyes appeared to be struggling to get off a shot at their end. Bohannon finally launched a contested 3 as the shot clock expired, and it swished through to make it 75-70.

Romeo Langford, who netted 14 points for Indiana, then missed a 3-pointer and Cook rebounded. Connor McCaffery was fouled with only 3.7 seconds left as the celebration began.

\"We obviously would like to win by more than a couple of points every once in a while,'' Cook said, \"but this is what we love to do, this is why we came here.\u2019\u2019

As in Tuesday\u2019s loss to Maryland, the Hawkeyes got off to a rough start, falling behind 8-0. They bounced back with a 9-0 scoring run in which they held the Hoosiers scoreless for more than 5 \u00bd minutes, taking a 19-15 lead. Indiana regained the lead thanks to six points from backup center Evan Pfitzner before Joe Wieskamp converted a 3-point play with 50 seconds left in the half to make it 28-28 at the break.

Indiana blocked three Iowa shots in the first two minutes of the second half and scored six quick points to regain the lead, leaving the Hawkeyes to battle uphill.

They never led in the second half but closed to within a single point three times, the first time when Bohannon drained a 27-foot shot for his first points of the game.

Indiana got the lead back up to 62-56 on a 3-pointer by Morgan with 2:23 remaining but the Hawkeyes battled back with the help of some key defensive plays. Baer blocked a shot by Morgan to force a held ball and Garza took a charge from Langford to get the ball back for the Hawkeyes.

Bohannon made two free throws and Cook scored off a lob pass from to narrow the margin two 62-60.

Rob Phinisee made the front end of a one-and-one free throw opportunity with 38.3 seconds to go and Bohannon made the Hoosiers pay by drilling another 3 from the right wing with 27.3 seconds left.

Langford got off a 3-point attempt in the final seconds but Bohannon managed to pry the rebound out of Morgan\u2019s grasp as time ran out.

EVANSVILLE, Ind.\u00a0\u2014 With 16 games left in the Quad-City Storm's inaugural season, every game is meaningful if a playoff berth is to be obtained.

A backwards step was taken Friday night.

The Storm were outshot 35-30 in a 3-1 loss to last-place Evansville at the Ford Center.

The loss keeps them at 28 points, six back of eighth-place Pensacola.

\"I think the guys thought they had it in the bag after a big win (over Knoxville Thursday),\" head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. \"It's frustrating when you tell the players, 'We haven't seen this team in a while and they're playing some good hockey so don't take them lightly.' That's exactly what we did for 40 minutes.\"

Edwin Minney got the start in net for the Thunderbolts. His last time facing the Storm, he gave up four goals on 24 shots in November. Friday, he got revenge to snap his four-game losing streak.

He had a shutout bid until the 6 minute, 36 second mark of the third period when Ben Boukal scored an unassisted goal.

Eric Salzillo connected on a goal at 15:06 in the opening period, which was followed by a power-play goal in the second by Nick Davolio at 13:22.

\"I don't know if we were necessarily caught off guard, we just didn't come out to play,\" Pszenyczny said. \"We weren't doing our routes, we weren't sticking to the game plan, just sloppy passes and dumb turnovers, all around a bad 40 minutes. Then, third period we decided we wanted to play, which doesn't make sense because you shouldn't have as much energy as we did in the third period.\"

Carter Shinkaruk finished it off in the third at 4:46 on assists from Brandon Tucker and Chase Nieuwendyk.

The Storm look to rebound tonight against the Thunderbolts.

\"We got kind of embarrassed tonight so we've got to make sure that doesn't happen again,\" Pszenyczny said.

Prior to the game, the Quad-City Storm placed forward Danny Cesarz on the team suspended list. Cesarz was acquired from the Knoxville Ice Bears on Monday in exchange for Mitch Mueller but is undergoing treatment for an injury in Michigan.

Head coach Dave Pszenyczny said he thinks Cesarz will report to the team by the end of the month.

ELDRIDGE\u00a0\u2014 Just a month ago in the same gymnasium, the North Scott boys\u2019 basketball team crushed Pleasant Valley by 24 points. The game never was in doubt.

Friday night was different. Much, much different.

Second-ranked North Scott trailed deep into the third quarter before mounting a surge to stave off its Mississippi Athletic Conference rival 42-38 in a Class 4A substate semifinal at The Pit.

\u201cWe knew it was going to be a slow game,\u201d North Scott junior Ty Anderson said. \u201cWe had to find it within ourselves to speed the game up a little bit.

\"That one run was very crucial.\u201d

PV senior Carter Duwa had just one basket in the teams\u2019 meeting four weeks ago. He poured in a game-high 22 points and kept the Spartans in front until the final three minutes of the third quarter.

North Scott (21-1) forced three straight turnovers and had five consecutive defensive stops. It turned into eight straight points to give the Lancers the lead.

Anderson had a putback to tie the game and then nudged the Lancers in front with another hoop in the lane. Carson Rollinger finished the run with a drive to the basket in the final minute of the third quarter.

\u201cThat was the difference in the game,\u201d said North Scott coach Shamus Budde, whose squad advances to play Cedar Rapids Prairie in a substate final Tuesday night at Iowa City Liberty High School. \u201cIf we don\u2019t have that stretch, and the way they shoot free throws, they\u2019re advancing.

\u201cI\u2019m proud of our guys because they could have folded, but they really stuck together and found a way to get it done.\u201d

Even though North Scott never squandered the lead, PV (15-8) had opportunities late thanks to 8 of 17 foul shooting from the Lancers in the final quarter.

Jacob Parker missed a game-tying 3-pointer with 40 seconds left. Hunter Snyder had a shot from the right corner, well-contested by Reece Sommers, that would have knotted the game with less than 12 seconds remaining.

\u201cI had a feeling he wanted to shoot it with Duwa in the opposite corner,\u201d Sommers said. \u201cAs he stepped back, thankfully I was disciplined enough not to jump and contest it too much and not foul. It would have been a crazy shot if it went in.\u201d

Cortaviaus Seales, who led the Lancers with 13 points, made one of two free throws with 7.6 seconds left to secure the win.

The Lancers, who have made a habit of winning close games this season, could exhale.

\u201cWe all know we\u2019ve got to stay focused no matter what happens,\u201d Seales said. \u201cIf we stick together and guard, be patient on offense and take the shots that are there for us, we\u2019re a good group.\u201d

North Scott has won seven games this season by six points or fewer.

\u201cThis season we\u2019ve been really good in those situations,\u201d Sommers said. \u201cTo know what it feels like to pull out these close games, it\u2019ll really help us out down the road.\u201d

PV made a quantum leap since the previous meeting.

Winners in seven of their last nine games, the Spartans controlled the tempo early and made 8 of their first 11 shots.

Duwa, in his final high school game, was 9 of 12 from the field.

\"He was really good tonight,\" Seales said. \"He was hitting all kinds of shots.\"

Given its trajectory in the last month, that's what made the loss so difficult for PV coach Steve Hillman to stomach afterward.

\u201cThis has been one of my favorite groups to coach,\u201d he said. \u201cWe had that rough spell, but they bought into being coached and trying to get better. The last two or three weeks of the season, we were a pretty good basketball team.

\u201cI thought we played the right way on both ends of the floor. You're not always going to get a high school team willing to change styles in the middle of the season. They bought in and gave themselves an opportunity.\"

North Scott is a win from a return trip to the state tournament. It beat Cedar Rapids Prairie 57-52 in the season opener.

\u201cI feel like there is a whole another gear for our group,\u201d Sommers said. \u201cWe missed a lot of free throws and a lot of bunnies around the rim tonight. If we defend how we want and play our style on offense, we\u2019re going to have a high ceiling.

\u201cHopefully, we can get there.\u201d

The Quad-City Steamwheelers made their Indoor Football League debut a smashing success Friday.

Last year's Champions Indoor Football playoff qualifiers scored touchdowns on their first seven possessions, plus picked off three passes on defense, to strike down the expansion San Diego Strike Force, 67-49 at the TaxSlayer Center.

The IFL debut for both teams marked the first game of the league's 70-game, 2019 regular season.

While the Wheelers also debuted a new synthetic playing surface, and plenty of newcomers stood out for the locals, it was a couple of familiar old faces that highlighted the victory.

The incumbent starter, CIF all-conference quarterback E.J. Hilliard, rewarded second-year coach Cory Ross for giving him the opening day start.

Hilliard, who held off newcomer Dillon Turner in a fierce training-camp battle, rushed for a couple of touchdowns and passed for two more scores to help Q-C build a 43-28 halftime lead.

One of those TD grabs was by returning all-conference wideout Keyvan Rudd, with the Davenport Central grad making an acrobatic, one-handed snare while crashing into the end zone wall.

Returning wideouts Quinton Pedroza and Darius Hicks also made their presence known \u2014 Pedroza with a team-leading 3 catches for 65 yards, and Hicks rushing for a pair of TDs.

Rookie running back Isiah Neely also scored a pair of first-half touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving, plus added another ground score in the fourth quarter.

Fellow newcomer Everett Nicholas V had a pair of third-quarter interceptions to protect the Wheelers lead.

Turner impressed, too, seeing fourth-quarter action, and making a bone-crunching run inside San Diego territory and leading a couple of touchdown drives.

NFL veteran Keith Lewis, another key new face, had the first Q-C pick midway through the second quarter to allow the Wheelers, who scored on the opening possession, to break from early ties at 7 and 14.

San Diego got as close as 36-28 on a TD with 38 seconds left before intermission, but Q-C answered only 22 ticks later, when Hilliard hooked up with Neely on a short scoring strike, and the Strike Force missed a half-ending, 43-yard field goal attempt.

The Wheelers scored the only TD of the third quarter, plus added a Jacob Stytz field goal and two more TDs in the final period.

The Wheelers return 11 players from last season, which was the first in nine years for the old af2 flagship.

Q-C revives an old af2 rivalry next weekend when they host the Iowa Barnstormers on Sunday, March 3.

The Illinois Wesleyan men's basketball team came out Friday evening against top-seeded Augustana playing at Carver Center as if its season was on the line \u2014 because it was.

Being the aggressors in the second CCIW Men's Basketball Tournament semifinal, the Titans, needing a championship this weekend to make the NCAA Division III Tournament, jumped out to an early lead and held that for the first 19 minutes of the game.

\u201cThey came out and punched us in the mouth,\u201d said Augie senior guard Nolan Ebel.

However, the veteran Vikings, ranked third this week nationally, punched back and in a big way en route to an 89-65 victory to log a second double-digit victory over the Titans this season.

\u201cWe came out guns a blazing, and I thought we played really well,\u201d said IWU coach Ron Rose.

However, as the game wore on, the hosting and top-seeded Vikings slowly worked their way back into the contest. With fouls and frustration mounting for IWU, a double-digit lead that grew to 12 dwindled.

And when Ebel hit two 3-pointers on Augie's final two possessions of the half, the hosts had somehow worked their way into a 39-37 lead at the break.

In the second half, the 24-2 Vikings left little doubt as to the outcome, running away with the victory and into a spot opposite No. 2-seeded North Central (21-5) in tonight's title game back at Carver.

The nationally 21st-ranked NCC Cardinals beat third-seeded Wheaton 94-87 in the opening semifinal. In that game, Matt Cappelletti (27 points), Connor Raridon (21 points) and Blaise Meredith (19 points, including 6-for-6 3-point shooting) led the Cardinals. Aston Francis led five Thunder (19-8) players in double-digit scoring with 30.

\u201cFor us, the end of the first really hurt,\u201d said Rose. \u201cThey gained momentum going in and really carried that into the second half. Had we been able to finish the half better, it certainly would have been much better for us.\u201d

For the Vikings, it worked out just fine despite the slow start.

\u201cWe were down 12 and win by 24,\u201d espoused Augie coach Grey Giovanine. \u201cWhen we're dialed in and focused, we're really good.\u201d

As was IWU early on.

Taking that momentum from the end of the first half, Augie started the second half with the first 10 points. Center Micah Martin hit two free throws, Ebel followed with a 3 before Pierson Wofford hit a 12-foot jumper, forcing IWU into a timeout with the Vikings up 46-37. After an IWU shot clock violation, Austin Elledge drilled a triple to make it a double-digit difference.

From there, the Titans were only as close as seven at 49-42 as Augie held them to just 28 points in the final 20 minutes.

\u201cOur guys stayed the course,\u201d said Giovanine. \u201cWe had a couple of intense timeouts, but they responded great.\u201d

Ebel, who got off to a horrid shooting start, led the Vikings with a game-high 27 points. Elledge added 12 off the bench and Wofford dropped in 11. Three other Vikings scored at least eight.

\u201cThey had contributions from a lot of guys and it's hard to guard five guys when they are all scoring,\u201d said Rose. \u201cTonight, they had everybody come to play.\u201d

Augie won the board battle 44-31 with Wofford and fellow starters Martin (nine points) and Brett Benning (eight points) grabbing a team-high six rebounds. Alex O'Neill led IWU with eight.

Brady Rose finished his career with a team-high 25 for the Titans, who finished 18-9. Colin Bonnett added 18 as the Titans only had six players crack the scoring column.

\u201cGive them credit. They had won seven in a row and were playing with tremendous confidence and they come in and stick a bunch of shots early,\u201d said Giovanine. \u201cThey had things going. But 10 minutes into the game, we started to speed them up and kind of imposed our will on them.\u201d

Everyone knows what Bettendorf's DJ Carton is capable of.

But if the Bulldogs are going to make a run at a state title, contributions from the supporting cast likely will be crucial. That was on display Friday night as the Bulldogs took on Davenport North in a Class 4A substate semifinal in Bettendorf's gym.

Carton had 26 points, but senior guards Blake Tyler and Trevor Feller were just as effective, combining for nine 3-pointers and 33 points to help Bettendorf advance with a 68-52 win over the Wildcats.

The top-ranked team in Class 4A will face Dubuque Senior at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. for the substate championship. The Bulldogs improve their record to 21-1 while North finishes its season at 10-13.

North played hard and was within six points twice early in the second half. But that's when Feller and Tyler made some big plays. A 3-pointer from North's TJ Vesey cut Bettendorf's lead to 37-31 with 6 minutes, 11 seconds remaining in the third quarter. But on the next possession a driving Carton found Feller in the corner, and he drained a 3-pointer to push the lead back to 40-31.

A Quincy Wiseman put-back basket a little more than a minute later again brought North within striking distance at 42-36, but Tyler went way up to rebound a North miss, then came down and got a nice pass from Bulldogs post player Lucas Hayes to nail a 3-pointer to push the lead back to 45-36.

It was the start of a run that ultimately was the difference. Carton had a jumper in the lane and then a steal and dunk. Tyler later added his own short jumper in the lane to push Bettendorf's lead to 51-36 by the later portion of the third quarter. The visitors could not mount a serious challenge the rest of the way.

Feller finished with 15 points, all on 3-pointers while Tyler added 18 points and seven rebounds. Carton chipped in 10 rebounds, five steals and five assists for the winners.

\"I have expected that from (Tyler and Feller) all season,\" Carton said of his teammates. \"They have done a great job of filling in their roles as scorers and stepping up to the plate in big spots. I have grown up with them, and I see how hard they work in practice, and I trust them as players in any situation.\"

Bettendorf coach Curtis Clark said he knew the team's guard play was going to be important against a quick team like North that can create turnovers and easy baskets.

\"Against North, you gotta have good guard play and, at times, I thought we played a little bit on our heels,\" Clark said. \"But we made an adjustment, and against that type of pressure, you have to be willing to attack it. Blake did a really nice job of finding those holes (in North's press) and attacking it and getting into the lane.\"

As for Feller, Clark said the shooting guard has been making timely shots all season.

\"Not real surprised about Trevor. When he shoots, everyone in the gym thinks it is going in,\" Clark said. \"He made the biggest 3 of the season to help win the (Mississippi Athletic Conference) title. We trust him a lot and so do his teammates.\"

Mekki Sisk led North with 12 points and five steals while Vesey finished with 10 points. Jamal Litt contributed nine points and four steals as well for the visitors. The Wildcats lose major contributors in Vesey, Cory Prather and Alec Siefert but could return a solid nucleus in Sisk, Wiseman, Litt and Jayden Houston.

\"Twice we cut it to six but could not quite get over the hump,\" North coach Joe Ewen said. \"I loved our group, and we battled all year, and it's just a great group of kids who gave it their all. I am proud as hell of them and I would coach these guys for another 25 games.\"

Trailing at halftime following a sluggish first half, it was go time Friday for the Davenport Central boys basketball team.

\"It was a reality check \u2014 win or go home \u2014 and we aren\u2019t ready to quit playing,\" Blue Devils senior Keshawn Pegues said. \"It was time. We had to come out and pick it up.\"

Pegues scored 12 of his 19 points in the second half to help lead Central to a 61-56 victory over Cedar Rapids Kennedy in an Iowa Class 4A substate semifinal at George Marshall Gym.

The win moves the Blue Devils into a 7 p.m. substate final at Muscatine on Tuesday against Iowa City West, a 74-39 winner Friday over Davenport West.

Central earned that opportunity first by ratcheting up its defensive pressure and then by holding off the Cougars with an 8-of-10 touch at the free-throw line down the stretch.

\"They made some good adjustments at halftime, took away some passes down the middle that had been good to us in the first half,\" Kennedy coach Jon McKowen said. \"They turned up the pressure a bit. That led to three runout layups, and when they did that, it seemed to allow them to get their offense going.\"

The Blue Devils needed that spark after getting into early foul trouble and falling behind 34-26 before senior Ralph Hayes provided Central with a shot of momentum in the final minute of the second quarter.

Hayes scored on a putback with 46 seconds left and then buried a buzzer-beating 3-point shot from the left wing to pull Central within 34-31 at the break.

\"That got us going,\" Blue Devils sophomore John Miller said. \"We needed that. I needed that. It told us all that it was time to put up a fight. It was a big basket.\"

From that point on, Central never looked back.

Defensive pressure forced Kennedy into six of its 15 turnovers in the third quarter, facilitating a run of 14 unanswered points which allowed the Blue Devils to surge ahead.

\"They made us earn it. Kennedy fought hard, played well and it took us time to adjust to their physicality,\" Central coach Craig Wurdinger said. \"We rebounded better in the second half, got to some loose balls and that gave us a chance.\"

The Blue Devils tied the game at 36-36 and then move ahead to stay on back-to-back 3-pointers by Kaiden Phillips with just under six minutes left in the quarter.

Central (16-6) built a 49-38 lead on a basket by Pegues with 1:33 remaining in the third, but Kennedy answered with an 11-2 run of their own.

The Cougars pulled within 51-49 with 4:08 remaining on a 3-pointer by Jack Wetzel, who led Kennedy with 27 points.

The Blue Devils worked the clock and Josh English drove the lane for a basket with 3:35 left as Central regained a four-point edge.

But, another 3 by Wetzel inched the Cougars (10-12) within 53-52 with 3:12 left before Central went to work at the line.

Miller, who matched Pegues\u2019 19-point effort, connected on 5-of-6 tries including a pair that extended the Blue Devils\u2019 lead to 59-54 after a midcourt steal by Amari Porter.

\"We did a nice job of closing things out,\" Wurdinger said. \"This is the time of year when guys need to step up and make a play or hit a free throw late in a game that makes a difference. It was good to see our guys do that.\"

Heading into a game against Moline a few weeks back, Rock Island senior basketball player Aaron Voss vowed to take over and lead the Rocks.

Starting with a win over Moline that week, the Rocks went from a team on the outside to winning four of five and three straight Western Big Six Conference to forge a conference tie with Moline after Friday's 45-31 win over United Township.

\"We really never talked about winning the Big Six, just controlling what we can control,\" Voss said. \"What I wanted to do was stepping up in practice and getting after it. I was pushing guys and they were willing to listen.\"

RI coach Thom Sigel noted he never talked about winning the Big Six until his team beat Quincy last week, and Moline lost to Galesburg to set up Friday's opportunity to get the tie.

\"Our guys really did a good job of regrouping after we lost at Galesburg,\" Sigel said. \"We did what we had to do and gave ourselves a chance. What I told them after the game is 'Let's wait to celebrate this, we have more work to do.'\"

That work starts on Wednesday when the Rocks (18-9, 8-2) will have another meeting with the Panthers (17-12, 3-7) in the Class 4A Pekin Regional.

UT coach hopes he will see a different team next week.

\"What did we give up, 43 (actually 45)?\" Webber said. \"... You just don't win with 31 points. We just can't find a way to get the ball in the basket. We really battled, and I loved our defense. Rocky got some baskets from uncharacteristic guys.\"

The Rocks and Panthers were knotted at 11 after one quarter but the Rocks started a 12-0 run late in the fourth quarter and finished it with the first eight points of the second. UTnever led again.

\"It never felt comfortable because UT has the ability to make some 3s and get right back in it,\" Sigel said. \"We just kept trying to build on the lead and other than a little period where we wanted to throw the ball around, we did what we wanted to.\"

The key for the Rocks came from their big guys inside. After scoring three times in the paint in the game's early stages, UT senior Daveon Ellis did not make another shot as Solomon Gustafson and Malachi Key swatted four of his shots away.

Those two, along with Voss and Taurean Holtam combined for five blocks and 24 rebounds for the Rocks.

\"They got the ball inside too easy to Ellis early and he is too good to allow that,\" Sigel said. \"Solomon kind of settled that down and all of our big guys rebounded better after the first quarter.\"

Voss added six points, including his first dunk in a game.

\"I wouldn't say I am thinking offense more, I'm just taking what they give me,\" Voss said. \"We have preached one through 15 since the start of the season, and this was another team effort. My dad told me before the game if I get a chance, go dunk one. I did it for him.\"

JaMir Price led the Rocks with 10 points as eight different Rocks scored in the game.

\"We got all nine seniors in, they all did something positive, and we got to send them out in their last game at home with a fun ending,\" Sigel said.

Jean Luc Wilson led UT with 11 points.

ORION \u2014 Friday\u2019s 2A Orion Regional final between a pair of Three Rivers West division rivals came down to making stops.

And the second-seeded Chargers, battling back from an early 12-point deficit on their home floor, managed to make biggest of those after the break and down the stretch en route to a 41-39 win over fifth-seeded Orion.

The regional title is Alex Johnson\u2019s first as head coach, and Orion\u2019s first since 2011.

The Chargers cut off Fulton\u2019s final heave toward midcourt to force a tough miss and cut down the regional net. Orion advances to face Bureau Valley, a 63-60 winner over Hall on Friday night.

Johnson\u2019s club trailed 20-10 after the first quarter and 26-17 at halftime before a 16-7 third-quarter run swung the game in the Chargers\u2019 favor. It was defensive energy that made the difference for Orion, including an 11-of-22 shooting performance from the field in the second half after a 6-of-18 first half.

\u201cA lot of credit to the kids for not giving up and believing in themselves,\u201d Johnson said. \u201cNow, on to Bureau Valley.\u201d

Josh Johnson led Orion (18-10) with 15 points and said that his team\u2019s energy and confidence was key in digging into the Fulton (13-15) lead.

\u201cWe started making shots,\u201d the junior said, \u201cand our defense kept making us better and giving us confidence.\u201d

Orion had nine turnovers and forced Fulton into 15.

Coach Johnson said his team upped the aggression after a \u201ctimid\u201d first quarter, crediting Fulton\u2019s game plan and noting some of his players playing in one of their first real big games.

\u201cThe kids responded really well in the second half,\u201d Johnson said, \u201cand I\u2019m happy for them.\u201d

Orion trailed 39-38 with under a minute to play, and following a full timeout, Johnson converted a basket and-1 to put his team up by the final margin. At that point, Orion felt it could close things out following Fulton\u2019s timeout.

\u201cOne more stop, one more stop,\u201d Johnson said. \u201cThat\u2019s what he told us in the huddle.\u201d

Caleb Spranger added 12 points for the Chargers.

Fulton was led by senior Jamison Osborn\u2019s 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting; sophomore Kyler Pessman added eight for the Steamers, who were outscored 24-13 in the second half.

Steamers head coach RJ Coffey said his team was sharp early, but simply didn\u2019t capitalize late when it needed to.

\u201cIt\u2019s tough that we didn\u2019t get a look there at the end; it didn\u2019t work out,\u201d Coffey said. \u201cBut it\u2019s not just one play, there were several plays that hurt us.\u201d

Fulton was dominant in the paint early, but the offense began to rush things after the 20-point opening frame.\u00a0

\"We knew it was going to be tight at the end no matter how it started,\" Coffey said. \"But man, our guys worked so hard, so I'm proud of them. Especially our seniors.\"

Wethersfield 63, Roanoke-Benson 56: Even after missing his first seven shots of Friday night's Class 1A Annawan Regional championship game, Isaac Frank did not doubt himself, nor did his Wethersfield boys' basketball teammates.

With the second-seeded Flying Geese clinging to a two-point halftime lead over No. 3 Roanoke-Benson before a packed house, Frank found his touch at the perfect time. He knocked down all four of his third-period shots, including three 3-pointers, helping the Geese take a seven-point lead into the final quarter.

Down the stretch, Wethersfield had to weather one final push by the Rockets, but again Frank stood tall, this time hitting six of eight free throws in the fourth to help his club secure its first regional-championship repeat in five years.

Sterling Newman 49, Erie-Prophetstown 37: The first season of the Erie-Prophetstown boys\u2019 basketball co-op ended on Friday night with a 49-37 loss to Newman Central Catholic in the 2A Sherrard Regional championship.

Panther senior Josh Hammer finished his high school career with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting and four rebounds, while classmate Brady Anderson had six points on 2-of-5 from the field. E-P head coach Ryan Winckler is very happy with how his team and his seniors played all year, including in their final game.

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 With the interior length to potentially give Iowa City West some trouble, Davenport West came out in a zone Friday night.

The plan backfired.

Led by a hot shooting night from Iowa City West guard Nicholas Pepin, the seventh-ranked Trojans raced out to an early 18-point lead in the first quarter and cruised to a 74-39 win in a Class 4A substate semifinal at Iowa City West High School.

The Trojans (16-4) face Davenport Central 7 p.m. Tuesday in Muscatine.

\"They made some tough shots in the first half,\" Davenport West head coach David Robinson said. \"We did a better job in the second half. We really came out, started chipping into the lead a little bit. We played hard.\"

Pepin entered the night shooting 55.8 percent from behind the 3-point line but was hot right from the start. The junior scored 18 of his 20 points in the first half, going 6 of 9 from behind the 3-point arc.

The Falcons (9-13) held Iowa commit Patrick McCaffery to 10 points in the first half and kept the Trojans' second-leading scorer Even Brauns to five points in the first 16 minutes, but trailed 40-19.

\"We don't see a lot of zone, and you probably figured out why,\" Iowa City West coach Steve Bergman said. \"We do have shooters, and Nick's a great shooter. ... He doesn't get a lot of 3s sometimes because we see all man. When they jumped in the zone, we had to remind ourselves how to run our offense.\"

McCaffery took over in the second half, finishing with 25 points, nine rebounds and four assists while Brauns added nine points, seven rebounds and five blocks.

Despite the lopsided score, the Falcons never packed it in. Malik Westerfield scored 13 points and had two steals while Jamil Haymond added seven points and seven rebounds, two of the three seniors on the roster leading the way.

\"Everybody came out, played hard and worked together. Nobody gave up,\" Haymond said. \"We did everything we wanted to but couldn't come out with a win tonight.\"

The Falcons are young, with two sophomores in the starting lineup, and Robinson feels confident moving forward following his first year as head coach.

Sophomore Aldane Barrett scored eight points while freshman NaZion Caruthers added six points off the bench.

\"We have changed a whole lot. We're more aggressive, more positive with each other,\" Robinson said. \"The guys believe in me and believe in the coaching staff and each other.

\"Going forward, we've got a bunch of young guys and I'm chasing the title, that's for sure. I'm not just chasing the MAC, I'm going for it all.\"

A Silvis home was damaged by a fire Friday afternoon after the owner tried to get a skunk out from under the front porch with a commercially made rodent smoke bomb, Silvis Fire Chief John Winters said.

Firefighters were dispatched to 1106 2nd Ave. at 5:03 p.m.

The fire started under the porch where the smoke bomb had been placed, Winters said, adding the fire went up the front of the house.

\u201cI was the first on scene and there were a lot of flames showing from the front porch,\u201d Winters said.

The home is a two-story structure built in 1910, according to the Rock Island County Assessor\u2019s online records.

Firefighters knocked the blazed down in about 15-20 minutes, Winters said, adding that the quick work by firefighters kept the fire from getting inside the home.

However, there was considerable smoke damage inside the home, which is making it uninhabitable for the time being, Winters said.

There was one firefighter treated at the scene for some smoke inhalation, and was cleared at the scene to return to duty. Otherwise there were no injuries, Winters said.

Kraig Paulsen, former speaker of the Iowa House who represented Hiawatha in the House for 14 years, has been named director of the Iowa Department of Revenue.

Gov. Kim Reynolds announced the appointment Friday. Paulsen starts his new job Monday.

Paulsen will leave his post at Iowa State University, where he was director of both supply chain and business analytics initiatives in the Ivy College of Business.

In his new job, Paulsen was will oversee about $10 billion in state revenues and will be responsible for allocating funding across state and local government.

\u201cIn my new role, I look forward to working with the high-quality professionals within the department to ensure the highest levels of accountability and transparency to Iowa taxpayers,\u201d Paulsen said in a statement released by the governor\u2019s office.

He replaces Adam Humes, who was named interim director last month after director Courtney Kay-Decker resigned in December following seven controversy-filled years. Humes is leaving to pursue other opportunities, Reynolds\u2019 office said.

Paulsen, 54, served in the Iowa Legislature from 2002 through 2016 and was the Republican speaker of the House from 2011 through 2015, when he stepped down and announced he would not run for re-election in 2016. Rep. Ashley Hinson, a Republican, now represents the district.

Paulsen, an Air Force veteran, also worked as corporate counsel to CRST International in Cedar Rapids.

A former commissioner at the Iowa Department of Transportation, he holds a bachelor\u2019s degree and law degree from the University of Iowa and a master\u2019s in business administration from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

His hiring at Iowa State in 2015, at a salary of $135,000, sparked controversy when he was hired without the job being advertised,

During his years as speaker, Paulsen was credited by both Republican and Democratic legislators as steady, even-handed and able to get things done, such as the 10-cent increase in the state fuel tax that pays for road updates.

\u201cI have always had a deep respect for Kraig Paulsen,\u201d Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs, said at the time Paulsen resigned as speaker. \u201cWhile we have had our partisan differences, we have done our level best to work those out with each other.\u201d

Davenport police have arrested a suspect in the Feb. 2 shooting outside a barbershop in which one man was wounded.

Tarrell Steven Howard, 32, of 1611 W. High St., Davenport, is charged with one count of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

Howard also is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, a Class D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Police officer Justin King, Police were dispatched to Genesis Medical Center-West Central Park, Davenport, at 4:36 p.m. Feb. 2 for a gunshot victim who had walked in for treatment.

The victim was able to drive himself to the hospital and had a wound to his left bicep.

Officers learned that the shooting took place outside of Devine Creations, located at 727 W. 3rd St.

During their investigation, police learned that an argument began in the barbershop and continued outside.

According to the affidavit, Howard punched the victim in the face. The victim fought back and both men ended up on the south sidewalk. Both men were separated by a third party.

Howard then allegedly drew a black semi-automatic handgun and fired two shots at the victim, with one of the shots striking the victim in the left arm, with the bullet going through his bicep. Another bullet struck a Ford Explorer that was parked on the north side of 3rd Street.

Investigating officers located two 9mm shell casings.

The victim gave officers a description of his assailant and the name Teeter Howard. Teeter is the nickname of Tarrell Howard.

Howard was being held Friday night in the Scott County Jail on a $10,000 cash-only bond.

Since Howard is a convicted felon, federal authorities could take over the firearms charges under Project Safe Neighborhoods, a Department of Justice initiative instituted in 2001 to reduce gun violence.

It is a federal offense for a felon to be in possession of a firearm. The charge carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years. There is no parole in the federal prison system.

Former Moline City Administrator Doug Maxeiner has been hired as interim city administrator for East Moline.

Maxeiner's employment was approved following closed session during the Feb. 4 city council meeting. He begins work on Monday.

Maxeiner will replace former East Moline City Administrator Darin Girdler, who resigned Jan. 22 after city officials asked for his resignation.

Maxeiner also resigned suddenly Jan. 22, although Moline city leaders said his departure was a \"mutual separation.\"

East Moline Mayor Reggie Freeman said he is looking forward to working with Maxeiner.

\"I've been on a couple of committees with him; I've seen how he works,\" Freeman said. \"We've been in administrator and mayors' meetings together.

\"I think he'll do a good job for the city while we search for a new administrator; I trust him,\" Freeman said. \"I'm looking forward to working with him.\"

According to the six-month employment agreement, Maxeiner will be paid $62 an hour with three paid personal days and paid holidays. Maxeiner has agreed to waive health, dental and vision insurance, but the city will pay his share of FICA and Medicare taxes, and make contributions to the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.

Maxeiner will receive a cellphone allowance of $50 per month and a city-issued laptop for business use.

In the event Maxeiner is hired as the permanent city administrator, a new agreement will be entered into.

Maxeiner was hired by the city of Moline in May 2017 at a salary of $157,500. At the time of his departure, Maxeiner's salary had risen to $162,515, including benefits and an annual automobile allowance of $4,800, according to the 2019 budget.

Maxeiner entered into a separation agreement that paid him 20 weeks of severance pay of about $62,505, to be paid in one lump sum in addition to any unused and accrued vacation time.

As part of the agreement, Maxeiner agreed not to seek court action against Moline and must refrain from making public comments on the matter.

In January, Alderman Dick Potter, 4th Ward, had attributed Maxeiner's departure to \"the culmination of a near-poisonous atmosphere that exists between some aldermen and some senior staff.\"

A Navy Seal preparing for a parachute jump once provided Col. Jeff Zust a favorite soldier's prayer by saying, \"God, I hope this works.\"

Zust retired Feb. 22 and will spend his final day, March 15, wrapping up his service as a military chaplain after a 33-year campaign, including\u00a0time as Army and Air Force Reserves chaplain.

\"I know this will personally affect me because I love what I do,\" Zust said. \"But it's time for me to go.\"

Zust grew up in the Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., area and was affiliated with the Southwest Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He also coached football and wrestling. In 1984, he was ordained at Augustana Lutheran in Denver. For five years he was at a church in Bernadotte, Minn.

He said he became a chaplain because he loves to work with people. He said his military career allowed him to teach ethics and spend time on \"unique tours working with simulation trainers.\"

He earned a bachelor's degree in history from Colorado State University before obtaining three master's degrees.\u00a0His tours of duty have included Iraq, Korea, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He's worked with two Medal of Honor recipients, several senior generals and three former joint chiefs of staff.\u00a0

His work has had him assigned to numerous posts around the country, the last as command chaplain for First Army at the Rock Island Arsenal. While in the Quad-Cities, Zust and his wife, Chom Pun, were members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport.\u00a0

In retirement, the couple plans to spend more time with their five children and six grandchildren. He plans to return to Colorado for a church project in the Denver area and to teach ethics as an adjunct professor for local colleges and universities. Zust also will be an interim minister and pulpit-supply pastor.

For First Army, Zust was basically responsible \"for all the religious support activities\" coordinated by ministry teams, he said.\u00a0

First Army is a \"multicomponent-sourced, meaning active Army, Army Reserve, Army National Guard organization\" of more than 8,000 active and reserve soldiers and Department of the Army civilians, according to information from Zust.

Zust said the mission of the U.S. Army Chaplains Corps was to provide religious support to the Army. Chaplains advise commanders to ensure the \"free exercise\" rights is upheld for all soldiers, including those who hold no faith.

Chaplains perform religious support activities according to their faith and conscience. They also provide religious support of other faith groups by coordinating with another chaplain or qualified individuals.

A 16-year-old Bettendorf boy was charged this week in connection with a robbery in the parking lot of Neil Armstrong Elementary School, 3311 Central Ave.

The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. Monday; school was not in session because of Presidents Day. Bettendorf Police Chief Keith Kimball said the robbery had \"nothing to do with the school itself.\"

The alleged victim said the boy, whose name has not been released, struck him in the face and head and punched him in the stomach while stealing $120 cash from the center console of his vehicle, according to an arrest affidavit.

Kimball said the alleged victim was of \u201csimilar age\u201d and the two knew each other.

The boy was located and arrested 18 minutes after the alleged robbery and was in possession of $117, according to the affidavit.

He admitted to stealing the money and using $3 to buy gasoline but denied assaulting the alleged victim.

During the investigation, officers located 1.71 grams of marijuana in the boy\u2019s backpack, according to the affidavit.

The boy was charged with second-degree robbery, a Class C felony.

Kimball said the boy was turned over to his mother.

IOWA CITY \u2014 Alex Marinelli didn\u2019t compete the last time Iowa took the mat at Oklahoma State\u2019s Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Redshirting as a freshman two years ago, he did make the trip to Stillwater and simply soaked it all in.

\"It\u2019s a different atmosphere, something totally different. The fans, they are right on top of you, and they let you know they are there,\" Marinelli said. \"It\u2019s a crazy atmosphere.\"

It\u2019s an atmosphere the Hawkeyes will step into again Sunday when the second-ranked Cowboys host third-ranked Iowa in a 2 p.m. dual.

The dual is the last of the regular season for two tradition-rich programs which have built 14-0 dual records this season.

\"The two most storied programs in the history of college wrestling,\" Iowa coach Tom Brands said. \"It\u2019s important to both coaches, and it\u2019s important to both coaching staffs. You have some high octane when you\u2019re looking at the coaching staffs, and it filters down into those athletes who are competing.\"

While it\u2019s \"the biggest match because it\u2019s the next match on the schedule,\" as Hawkeye 125-pounder Spencer Lee puts it, there is a little something extra when the Hawkeyes and Cowboys renew acquaintances.

The Iowa and Oklahoma State programs have combined to win 57 NCAA championships in the sport, and while the Hawkeyes have won four of the last five duals between the teams, the Cowboys hold a 28-22-2 edge in the all-time series.

\"It\u2019s exciting. This is one of those things that should be on live, primetime ESPN,\" Brands said. \"Not the deuce. Not the trey. Not the four. Not the five. Not the ocho, from that movie. Put us on ESPN.\"

Brands said the dual is one both programs can take pride in.

\"Two programs with the history and tradition that we have, to be sitting where we are now, to continue to be relevant as contenders, that\u2019s something special,\" Brands said. \"This is an opportunity. We\u2019ve got two programs going after the same real estate. You could say we\u2019re chasing Penn State, but I don\u2019t think anybody is conceding anything.\"

There will be no shortage of marquee match-ups in the dual.

Iowa has six wrestlers ranked in the top 10 in their weight class, and Oklahoma State has seven. Overall, nine Hawkeyes are rated in the top 20 in the nation, the same number of rated competitors the Cowboys have.

\"Put everything together, the records, the rankings, the time of the year and hoping to make some momentum, it\u2019s big,\" Brands said. \"We\u2019re both looking for a breakthrough to take that next step. But, whether you steamroll or get steamrolled you\u2019ve got to get ready to roll into March.\"

Marinelli, 19-0 on the season and ranked second in the country at 165 pounds, believes the experience should benefit the Hawkeyes.

\"We have a lot of young guys in our lineup this year, guys who have never been there before,\" Marinelli said. \"I\u2019m sure we\u2019ll talk about it before Sunday. It\u2019s a tough environment, but it\u2019s a great environment to compete in. It\u2019s going to be a dogfight, and that\u2019s fine with us.\"

WATERLOO -- Jeff Danielson has accepted a position as American Wind Energy Association's central region director.

Danielson made his announcement more than a week after he resigned from the Iowa Senate and as a Cedar Falls firefighter.

\"Danielson will advocate for pro-growth policies to help wind power expand and meet strong consumer demand for clean energy,\" according to a news release.

His first day will be Monday and while AWEA is located in Washinton, D.C., Danielson will most likely remain in the Cedar Valley area.

\u201cI\u2019m proud to announce an exciting new chapter in my career, even as two wonderful chapters of public service come to a close,\u201d Danielson said in the news release. \u201cAbove all, I\u2019d like to thank the citizens of Cedar Valley for allowing me to serve them for so many years in the State Senate and the Cedar Falls Fire Department.\u201d

On the same day Danielson announced his new job, Walt Rogers announced he is running to fill Danielson\u2019s seat in the March 19 Senate District 30 special election.

\u201cI want Black Hawk County and the University of Northern Iowa to have a stronger voice in Des Moines,\u201d Rogers said in an earlier interview with The Courier. \u201cI want to be a strong advocate for them in the majority party.\u201d

No other Republicans have yet to announce their intention to run.

Four Democratic candidates have announced they are running to fill Danielson\u2019s seat: Eric Giddens, a member of the Cedar Falls school board; Amy Petersen, a professor at the University of Northern Iowa; Sasha Wohlpart, also a member of the Cedar Falls school board; and Tom Ralston, a former union leader and employee of John Deere.

The Black Hawk County Democratic party will hold a special convention to choose a candidate at 10 a.m. Saturday at their headquarters at 307 E. Fourth St. in downtown Waterloo.

Republicans will hold their convention Monday at Upper Iowa University for Republican Central Committee members.

Libertarian candidate Fred Perryman also has announced his candidacy.

Candidates have until March 5 to file to run in the election.

Iowa basketball radio play-by-play man Gary Dolphin has been suspended for the remainder of this season for comments he made during Tuesday night\u2019s broadcast of the Iowa-Maryland game.

Learfield Sports Properties, which holds the rights to Iowa radio broadcasts, announced the suspension Friday, a few hours before the Hawkeyes were to take the court for a home game against Indiana. Quad-Citian Jim Albracht will replace Dolphin for the remainder of the season, working alongside analyst Bobby Hansen.

In his postgame wrap-up of the Iowa-Maryland game, Dolphin referred to Terrapins\u2019 center Bruno Fernando, who is black, as \"King Kong,\" a fictional gorilla featured in various films.

The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Fernando had scored the game-winning points on a tip-in with 7.8 seconds remaining. Dolphin\u2019s exact comment was: \"And then Fernando was King Kong at the end of the game.\"

Iowa issued a statement supporting the decision to suspend Dolphin, noting that \"The University of Iowa athletics department values diversity and is committed to creating a welcoming environment for all members of its campus community.\"

Dolphin, who has served as the radio voice for Iowa football and basketball for 22 years, issued his own statement apologizing for his actions.

\"During the broadcast, I used a comparison when trying to describe a talented Maryland basketball player. In no way did I intend to offend or disparage the player,\" Dolphin said. \"I take full responsibility for my inappropriate word choice and offer a sincere apology to him and anyone else who was offended. I wish the Iowa Hawkeye players, coaches and fans all the very best as they head into the final stretch of the season. I will use this as an opportunity to grow as a person and learn more about unconscious bias.\"

It is the second time this season that Dolphin has been suspended. He sat out two games early in the season after criticizing Iowa guard Maishe Dailey during Iowa\u2019s Nov. 27 game with Pittsburgh. Those comments came during a halftime break when Dolphin did not realize he was on the air.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery called those remarks \"inexcusable\" and Iowa athletic director Gary Barta made references to \"ongoing tensions\" between Dolphin and the Iowa basketball program.

Dolphin returned to his broadcasting duties for the Hawkeyes\u2019 Dec. 6 game against Iowa State although since then Hansen has handled all postgame interviews with Iowa coaches and players.

Speaking through an interpreter, a man identified only as Diego looked out at a room full of people and recounted his journey from Guatemala to the United States and how he and his son, Pedro, 12, were separated at the border.

Diego told the audience in the Rogalski Center at St. Ambrose University, Davenport, that his son was transported to a detention facility in New York while Diego was handcuffed and jailed in Texas.

The separation lasted 40 days, during which Diego was not allowed to use a phone and had no idea where Pedro was or how he was. In their separate places, both cried, he said.

Diego's story was one of four relating to immigration issues that were presented during a panel discussion Wednesday night, sponsored by St. Ambrose through an endowment established to support social justice and activism. The panel is an annual event aimed primarily at students, but organizers try to pick topics that also are of interest to the general public.

Diego arrived in Davenport in August after the Catholic Diocese of Davenport accepted a request from the U.S. Council of Bishops to provide him with \"family reunification services and support\" for three months, Kent Ferris, social action director for the diocese, said.

This typically means providing housing, food, clothing, medical care if needed, assistance in finding legal help and school enrollment if school-aged children are involved, Ferris said.

Diego said he made the 1,800-mile journey from his home because he feared for his and his son's lives. Upon reaching the border, he turned himself in, seeking asylum. The first step toward asylum status is to establish \"credible fear\" of returning to a homeland.

Ferris declined to say where Diego is in that process except to say he is working toward getting a status that would allow him to work. Diego has a wife and four daughters still in Guatemala.

Meanwhile, the diocese is informally providing support even though its three-month commitment has ended.

The three other panelists were Yoland Rivera, a Coralville lawyer who volunteered a week's time last summer to help immigrants in border detention centers with legal issues; Kristy Nabhan-Warren, on the faculty of the University of Iowa who documents and writes about Latino issues; and Ferris. Here are some of their comments:

Rivera: \"These are not people who are trying to sneak in and break the law,\" she said of the people she encountered in jail. \"They are men, who in their eyes, were doing what they needed to do. Going up to an officer and asking for asylum. Instead, they were separated from their sons and not told where they were going.\"

Detainees, she said, are entitled to a translator in their first language, but there were not enough.

By the time Rivera arrived on the border last summer, many of the men in detention were asking to be deported but were not allowed because of a legal stay on deportations that came out at that time, she said.

Nabhan-Warren: She traveled 1,500 miles along the U.S.-Mexican border last summer, gathering information by speaking to migrants, border agents and long-time residents.

People seeking asylum do so because they see it as the only chance for a safe and productive life. \"It's not that they want to leave,\" she said. They are trying to escape grinding poverty, gang violence and drug- and sex-trafficking.

Money to build the border wall, she said, would be better spent working with Central American countries to try to improve their economies so people wouldn't feel the need to flee.

Ferris: In response to an audience question about what people of goodwill can do to help, Ferris suggested donations to Iowa WINS, a refugee/immigrant assistance group based at First Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant, and the Eastern Iowa Community Bond Project.

The bond project's mission \"is to increase access to due process within the immigration justice system by providing bail funds and additional legal support to immigrants detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement,\" according to its website.

\"It seems that if you can get bonded out, your case is looked at more favorably,\" Ferris said. Bonds can be as low as $1,500, but $5,000 to $7,000 is more typical, according to the website.

Ferris also suggested contacting Quad-Cities Interfaith, which has an immigration task force.

\"This is not something you do off to the side,\" he said of working for social justice. \"This is the core of our faith.\"

If a storm can make it north of Interstate 80 late tonight, it may also produce localized higher ice amounts.

\"Saturday, widespread rain is expected with more isolated thunderstorms possible from late afternoon into the evening. Severe weather is not expected, but wind gusts to 45 mph will be possible as well as small hail. Any storm may again be able to produce locally heavy downpours and ponding of water.

DES MOINES \u2014 The National Weather Service says several Iowa rivers have an increased risk of flooding this spring.

The service said Thursday in the first of two planned Spring Flood and Water Resource Outlooks that the concerns include snowpack melting rates and high soil moisture.


\u2022 2019 Spring flood outlook report


Flood outlook

The report says the probability for flooding \"is very high for at least minor flooding along the Mississippi River and most tributary rivers across eastern Iowa.\" It also says several waterways on the state's western and eastern borders have a better than 50 percent chance at flooding and some have a better than 50 percent chance of major flooding.

The service says a fast melt combined with heavy spring rains \"could cause high-impact flooding, while a slow melt with little additional precipitation would cause flooding to be much less severe.\"

\u2022 Monitor area river levels.

\u201cWellSpire\u201d is the name of the new entity formed by the partnership of WesleyLife of Johnston, Iowa, and Genesis Health System of Davenport, officials said Friday.

The partnership, announced last month, will strengthen a common mission to pave the way for older adults in the Quad-Cities to lead healthy, fulfilling lives that focus on purpose and well-being.

\u201cThe name \u2018WellSpire\u2019 is derived from the words \u2018well\u2019 and \u2018inspire,\u2019 and our choosing of those two words was very deliberate in terms of our goals for the new organization,\u201d Rob Kretzinger, CEO of WesleyLife, said.

\u201cIn everything we strive to accomplish on behalf of those we serve, WesleyLife encourages residents, clients, participants, and team members to be mindful of their well-being. And the Genesis mission\u00a0\u2014 to provide compassionate, quality health services to all those in need\u00a0\u2014 is an important component of that name as well.\u201d

As WesleyLife brings its 72 years of experience and expertise serving older adults to Genesis Health System\u2019s existing senior living portfolio, the forming of WellSpire creates an opportunity for the joined organizations to serve senior markets in both Iowa and Illinois through a comprehensive health and wellness network.

Initial plans for WellSpire include:

\u2022\u00a0Developing, in the short-term, a new senior living community in the Bettendorf, Iowa, area, with site selection to be announced soon

\u2022 In the longer-term, developing a new senior living community in the Moline market

\u2022\u00a0Identifying physical changes, expansions, or new developments to be made to the Genesis properties of Illini Restorative Care and Crosstown Square apartments in Silvis, and Westwing Place in DeWitt as all will be transitioned to the auspices of WellSpire

2. Police arrest man in Pershing Avenue shooting

\"Andrew

Andrew David Carr

Davenport Police have arrested a man on charges stemming from a shooting earlier this month that left a man injured. Andrew David Carr, 24, of Davenport is charged with first-degree burglary, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and going armed with intent.

The most serious charge, burglary, is a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Online records show that he was booked into the Scott County Jail at 9:37 a.m. Carr posted $25,000 through a bail bond company and was released at 10:04 a.m.

He has a preliminary hearing March 1.

At 2:50 a.m. Feb.7, officers responded to the 800 block of Pershing Avenue in reference to multiple reports of shots fired, according to an arrest affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.

A 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound was located and transported to a local hospital. An investigation into the incident revealed that Carr, who was armed with a handgun, entered the home of the man without permission.

A struggle ensued between them, which led to Carr shooting the man, according to the affidavit.

4. Storm water, traffic worry Portillo's neighbors

\"022419-qct-qca-portillos-009\"

Storm water in the neighborhood south of the development collects in two drainage ditches next to two streets and eventually makes its way to Hanlin's Creek. The ditches run in the front yards of residents.

Wait and see.

That's the only option for residents living south of Davenport's 53rd Street as they watch the building of a Portillo's restaurant and three other buildings where nine homes were demolished last year.

They lost the fight that rezoned a long-time residential neighborhood into 6\u00bd acres of planned commercial, and now they can only wait and see what effect the development will have on stormwater and traffic in their neighborhood, between Lorton Avenue and Fairhaven Road, south of Costco Wholesale.

The overriding problem, say neighbors Jeff Talbert and Craig McManus, is that city leaders were so eager for the $20 million development and the additional tax revenue it would bring that they approved rezoning for the development even though the infrastructure of their neighborhood \u2014 streets and storm sewer \u2014 doesn't support it.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.\u00a0\u2014 The Quad-City Storm's last game of the regular season at the Knoxville Civic Center was a good one.

Sean Kacerosky scored an unassisted power-play goal at the 15-minute, 46-second mark of the third period to give the Storm a 3-2 win over the Ice Bears Thursday night.

It's the Storm's second win of the season against the Ice Bears, who are currently in fifth place in the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Kacerosky's goal came after Marcus Ortiz was hit with a five-minute penalty and game misconduct for spearing late in the third period.

Ortiz gave the Ice Bears the lead with a power-play goal at 3:51 in the first period. Michael Casale tied the game, burying a pass from Tommy Tsicos at 15:39.

\"I thought we had a little bus legs in the first period, took a penalty really quick and unfortunately gave one up,\" head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. \"But all in all, the boys kept with it.\"

Doug Rose put Knoxville up 2-1 with a power-play goal at 1:43 in the second period, but Casale answered with his second goal of the game at 17:55 to send both teams into the second intermission tied 2-2.

Peter Di Salvo made 28 saves in net for the Storm.

\"We were actually being smarter with the puck at certain times,\" Pszenyczny said. \"There's still some things we need to clean up on the back end, but other than that, we'll take two points however we can get them.\"

In the last three weeks, the Storm have earned wins over league-leading Peoria, fourth-place Macon and fifth-place Knoxville, while taking second-place Birmingham to overtime.

They now travel to Evansville, Indiana, for two games against the Thunderbolts, currently in last place in the standings.

\"They're down there in the standings right next to us, and they've been playing good hockey as of late,\" Pszenyczny said. \"It's a totally different team over there, different mentality. We've just got to be hungry, and we can't take them lightly.\"

Storm acquire Wahlin off waivers: The Quad-City Storm claimed forward Brandon Wahlin off waivers Wednesday. Wahlin, 26, had played 24 games with the Knoxville Ice Bears this season, scoring four goals and adding nine assists in 24 games.

The White Bear Lake, Minnesota, native has also scored six goals and added 21 assists in 14 games in the Federal Hockey League this season.

In 42 career SPHL games, Wahlin has scored six goals and added 10 assists.

CASCADE, Iowa \u2014 A hot start from the field by Nathan Moeller sent Clinton Prince of Peace on its way to an Iowa Class 1A district boys basketball title on Thursday.

But a comparatively young Easton Valley team didn\u2019t go away quietly, overcoming a double-digit deficit to push the Irish in the fourth quarter before Prince of Peace pulled away at the line in the final minutes to earn a 60-49 victory.

\"We knew in the end it would come down to defense. We knew we had to be up on them, and we knew we had to box out,\" said Moeller, who scored 15 of his 17 points in the first 10 minutes of the game as the Irish built a lead they did not relinquish.

Eight of Moeller\u2019s points came during a 13-0 run which allowed Prince of Peace to overcome a 15-11 deficit the River Hawks\u2019 Jessen Weber helped create by knocking down three 3-pointers in the game\u2019s first four minutes.

The Irish opened a 24-15 lead before Nate Trenkamp ended a 6 1/2 minute scoring drought for Easton Valley.

\"After we beat them the second time we faced them in the regular season, we knew they would bring a lot of intensity, just like we did after losing at their place in our first game,\" said River Hawks coach Dan Beck, whose team split a pair of six-point regular-season games with the Irish.

\"We had to be ready from the start, and we got off to a decent start, but they came right back at us.\"

Prince of Peace maintained a 28-20 lead at halftime and extended its advantage to 37-24 with three minutes to go in the third quarter.

By that point, Moeller was on his way to a 13-rebound performance that complemented the defensive effort led by Patrick Mulholland on the perimeter that limited Easton Valley to one 3-point basket in the middle two quarters.

\"That\u2019s a tough, physical team that we played, and they shoot crazy 3s, just a great group of shooters on the perimeter,\" Prince of Peace coach Gerry Murphy said. \"We knew we had to get a body on their shooters and not give them an inch. For the most part, we got that done.\"

The River Hawks (20-4) found their touch late in the third quarter, crafting a 16-5 run that included six of Cade Jargo\u2019s team-leading 11 points and cut the Irish lead to 42-40 on a Curtis Hartung basket with 5 minutes, 29 second remaining.

\"The guys did a good job of playing their way back into the game,\" Beck said. \"We gave ourselves a chance, got it down to two and had a play called, but the shot just didn\u2019t go down. Credit their defense, we missed a few we normally make.\"

A drive by Trenkamp kept Easton Valley within 45-42 with 3:16 left, but after a missed 3-pointer by the River Hawks on the next possession, the Irish answered.

Kaidon Larson was fouled as he scored and converted at the line to give Prince of Peace (19-3) a 48-42 advantage with 1:40 remaining.

Larson and the Irish lived at the line from that point on, hitting 12-of-14 free throws over the final 1:23, including Larson finishing off his 23-point game by connecting on 8-of-10 attempts at the stripe.

\"The fourth quarter, we had to play every possession like it was the one we needed to win the game,\" Larson said. \"They made us earn it and all our guys stepped up and did just that.\"

The Irish advance to an Iowa 1A substate game on Saturday against Dunkerton, which moved to 20-4 with a 61-50 win over Gilbertville Don Bosco. Initially scheduled as the first of two games in Manchester, Prince of Peace\u2019s substate game has been moved to Midland High School in Wyoming, Iowa, and is now set for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 A couple of minutes into the third quarter, you could have forgiven the Calamus-Wheatland Warriors if they started to daydream about the Saturday night substate championship game.

They had scored the first four points of the second half to open an 18-point lead and had held Alburnett star Hunter Caves to just a solitary free throw at that point.

But the Alburnett kids weren\u2019t quite ready to give up on their own dreams.

Caves scored 26 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and the Pirates relentlessly scrambled back from a seemingly insurmountable hole to hand Cal-Wheat a stunning 71-64 loss in a Class 1A district championship game at Cedar Rapids Prairie.

Alburnett (17-5) will now be the team taking on WACO in the substate finale Saturday at Iowa City Liberty while Cal-Wheat ends its season at 19-4.

\"We just kept having faith \u2026,\" said Caves, a rugged 6-foot sophomore who finished with 31 points and 10 rebounds. \"After halftime, we just started bringing momentum, and it just clicked.\"

Before halftime. It was Cal-Wheat that was clicking. The Warriors shot 53.8 percent from the field and made 7 of 10 3-point shots in the first two quarters to grab a 37-23 advantage.

\"I thought we were in trouble,\" Alburnett coach Jeff Christopherson admitted. \"We told the kids at halftime: \u2018Just stay the course.\u2019 We\u2019ve been working on defense every day. Just stay true to your defense.

\"Cal-Wheat came out and shot the ball really well in that first half. We knew they couldn\u2019t continue that.\"

When the Warriors finally went cold, they went arctic.

They shot 25.8 percent after halftime and were 2 for 17 from 3-point range.

Alburnett sliced the margin to 45-35 after three quarters, cut it to six, watched Cal-Wheat nudge it back to 12 (54-42), then put together a 14-2 scoring run in the final 2 minutes, 40 seconds of regulation.

Caves scored all but two of the 14, mostly on relentless drives to the hoop.

\"It was like we were trying to stop a train on ice,\" Cal-Wheat coach Greg Rickels said.

\"We got back on our heels there when they were making their run,\" he added. \"We knew they would make a run. Sometimes you just tighten up a little bit.\"

Caves drilled a 3-pointer from the top of the key to tie the score at 56-56 with 35 seconds remaining. Cal-Wheat called two timeouts after that before settling for a 3-point shot by Brant Boeckmann that didn\u2019t hit anything as the buzzer sounded.

Caves began the overtime with another 3-pointer.

Cal-Wheat\u2019s Hunter Rickels, who collected 23 points and 10 rebounds and topped 1,000 points for his career in the game, scored on a drive for his only field goal after halftime, but the Pirates seized control from there.

Cal-Wheat missed one 3-point attempt after another, then continually fouled Caves, who made 9 of 10 free throw attempts in the overtime.

Caves also made 7 of 8 shots from the field in the fourth quarter and overtime.

\"I haven\u2019t felt it like that in a game before,\" he said, \"but I knew that it would click sometime.\"

\"He\u2019s starting to grow up,\" Christopherson said. \"He\u2019s a sophomore but now he\u2019s starting to play like a junior or senior kid.\"

Izik Mackey, a 6-5 senior, added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Pirates.

\"We knew we had to pound the ball inside, get it to Izik and Hunter did a nice job of attacking the rim,\" Christopherson said. \"And we made some free throws in the second half after going 2 of 9 in the first half.\"

CEDAR RAPIDS\u00a0\u2014 Davenport Assumption\u2019s boys basketball team had to overcome a lot Thursday night.\u00a0

It had to play Cedar Rapids Xavier on its home floor. Its leading two scorers, Dylan and Sean Peeters, were saddled with foul trouble most of the game and eventually fouled out. Its head coach was slapped with a technical foul in the second half. It turned the ball over 14 times, five in the last three minutes.

Assumption dodged all of that to keep its season alive with a 40-38 win in a Class 3A substate semifinal at Ron Thillen Gymnasium.

\u201cWe battled adversity for 32 minutes of that game,\u201d Assumption coach Matt Fitzpatrick said. \u201cWe never were able to get in a flow, but our guys stuck together, kept battling and picked each other up. They picked me up.\u201d

The Knights (15-8) are on the doorstep of the state tournament for the second straight season. They\u2019ll play top-seeded West Delaware in a substate final Monday night at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids.

\u201cWe kind of took things for granted last year and didn\u2019t come ready to go against Marion,\u201d Dylan Peeters said. \u201cIf we come with the same focus as tonight, we should be ready to go.\u201d

Fitzpatrick voiced his displeasure for the past two weeks about the seeding process. He was adamantly upset the Knights were given a three seed and had to match up with the Saints, who had a losing record but play in the rugged Mississippi Valley Conference, on their home floor.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association has let the coaches in each substate seed the eight teams. Five of the eight schools in the substate are from the Wamac.

\u201cYou don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out it was pretty intentional,\u201d Fitzpatrick said.

Fitzpatrick tried to turn it into positive. He offered to pay for every Assumption student\u2019s ticket if it filled the fan bus. The Knights had more than 60 students in attendance, and they made their presence felt.

Ultimately, it cost Fitzpatrick about $400.

\u201cIt was the best investment I\u2019ve ever made in my life,\u201d he said. \u201cI absolutely love this team, and we deserved to play two (tournament) home games. I thought these guys deserved great support, and I thought it could create a little buzz. Our guys deserved better.\u201d

All the Assumption students rushed the floor as Xavier Quinn Schulte\u2019s layup try in the final seconds missed the mark and the Knights hauled in the rebound.

It was a rugged contest.

Assumption lost Sean Peeters to fouls with 4 minutes, 23 seconds remaining. Dylan Peeters joined him on the bench with 2:03 left.

\u201cThat might have been the longest two minutes of my life,\u201d Dylan said, \u201cbut I had faith in my teammates.\u201d

The Knights had a 39-33 lead when Dylan departed. The Saints rallied back and got within a point on a Davis Wagner basket with 9 seconds left.

Assumption\u2019s Anthony Valainis was fouled on the ensuing inbounds play. He split two free throws. Schulte raced into the frontcourt and got a shot off, but it was well-contested by senior Ray Kotula.

\u201cThis shows a lot of toughness from our guys,\u201d Kotula said. \u201cDylan and Sean are the backbone of our team, so when they went out with fouls, the rest of us had to stick together and find a way to get it done.\u201d

The Knights trailed 13-4 after the opening quarter but rallied to tie the game by intermission behind Kotula and Grayson Heiser. They accounted for 10 points in the second quarter.

Then Dylan Peeters, held scoreless in the opening half, led the game-defining surge. He had 12 of Assumption\u2019s 14 points from late in the third quarter until the 2:40 mark of the fourth. In that span, he knocked down two 3-pointers and finished with a dozen rebounds.\u00a0

\u201cI thought he played like one of the best players in the state for that stretch, and that was a difference-maker,\u201d Fitzpatrick said. \u201cIt was like, \u2018I\u2019m going to find a way to win this game.\u2019\u201d

Dylan Peeters said he took it upon himself with his brother in foul trouble.

\u201cI realized I had to take over,\u201d Dylan said. \u201cI\u2019m a senior, and I have to step up and hit some shots. Luckily, they fell tonight.\u201d

\u201cA lot of the games we played throughout the season prepared us for this,\u201d Dylan said. \u201cOur team has a lot of grit, and we\u2019re really coming together and making a run at the state championship.\u201d

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. \u2014 With the game on the line, Indiana's Bendu Yeaney made huge plays on both ends of the court to lift the Hoosiers to the upset of Indiana.

The sophomore guard scored with 3.8 seconds left and blocked a potential game-winning shot in Indiana' 75-73 upset of No. 10 Iowa on Thursday night.

With the game tied at 73, she drove for go-ahead basket. Tania Davis tried a 3 at the buzzer that Yeaney blocked to snap a four-game skid for the Hoosiers (18-10, 7-9 Big Ten).

\"That's what my team asks from me,\" Yeaney said. \"They want me to make big plays at big moments. That's all I did.\"

Iowa (21-6, 12-4) fell a game behind conference leader Maryland with two games left in the regular season.

\"This is new territory for us,\" Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said of being ranked in the top 10 and playing for a conference championship. \"Our prep was great. We just got tight. I think we thought a little too much about what was at stake.\"

The victory was Indiana coach Teri Moren's 100th at Indiana and 299th overall.

\"Any time beat the 10th-ranked team in the country and get your 100th win, it's going to be a big night,\" Moren said.

Indiana trailed Iowa 49-33 before outscoring the Hawkeyes 42-24 over the final 15 minutes. Ali Patberg's 3-pointer with 2:36 left gave the Hoosiers a 68-65 lead. Her free throw made it 71-67.

Megan Gufaston converted a three-point play and after Jaelynn Penn hit two free throws that gave the Hoosiers a 73-70 advantage.

Davis tied the game at 73 with a 3-pointer with 21.3 seconds left.

The Hoosiers were led by junior Brianna Wise, who finished with 24 points and keyed Indiana's late run. Patberg, who had missed Indiana's last three games with a shoulder injury, added 21.

Gustafson, the nation's leading scorer, finished with 26 points and 12 rebounds to lead Iowa. Kathleen Doyle added 17 points and nine assists.

Doyle and Makenzie Meyer each made a pair of 3-point attempts in the first quarter as Iowa ran out to a 24-12 lead. Indiana trailed 38-30 at the break.

An 11-0 Iowa run gave the Hawkeyes their largest lead at 49-33 midway through the third quarter, but Indiana answered with a Patberg-led 18-5 spurt. Wise nailed a 3 at the third-quarter buzzer to get Indiana within 54-51 heading into the final period.

The Hawkeyes appeared to be in the Big Ten driver's seat when they had a 16-point lead and Maryland trailed Minnesota by double figures. However, the Terrapins came back for a big 71-69 win and Iowa now trails by a game in the Big Ten standings with two games remaining.

Carl Sandburg 63, Black Hawk 52: The Black Hawk women closed their regular season with a loss to Carl Sandburg on Thursday.

Men's basketball

Carl Sandburg 74, Black Hawk 69: The Braves led by 15 at the break but couldn't hang on Thursday.

\u201cWe played great in the first half, but we knew that Sandburg was going to make a run at us in the second half and we got back on our heels,\u201d Black Hawk Coach Darren Bizarri said. \u201cOnce we finally gathered ourselves, we almost got it corrected, but didn\u2019t make a couple of plays down the stretch.\u201d

Jacob Trumbull led the Braves with 16 points, and Geneseo graduate Jacob Pauley added 14.

Former Annawan teammates Owen Landwehr and Ben Buresh scored 11 and 9 respectively.

MAQUOKETA, Iowa\u00a0\u2014 Macklin Shanahan acknowledged it wasn't Maquoketa's best game of the season.

But in front of a packed gym Thursday night at Maquoketa High School, the Class 3A No. 3 Cardinals found a way to get the job done, beating Central DeWitt 55-47 in a substate semifinal.

\"It might have been (our worst game),\" the Cardinal senior said. \"This crowd, this atmosphere, they really helped us out tonight.\"

The Cardinals (20-2) head to the U.S. Cellular Center on Monday to take on Marion, looking to avenge one of their two losses this season, but they needed everyone to step up to get past WaMaC rival Central DeWitt (10-10).

Whether it was Nicholas Ehlinger hitting a couple of big 3s in the second quarter, key rebounds grabbed by Nathan Watters throughout the game, or a big steal and lay-in by Caiden Atienza, the Cardinals had contributions from up and down the lineup.

\"This team is amazing. We love each other, we've been playing with each other since third grade, everybody has a role and we know what to do,\" Shanahan said. \"We think that anybody can have the game of their life any night, and we're super supportive of each other.\"

Shanahan led the Cardinals with 14 points, but six of those came at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter. AJ Becker, usually so dominant from behind the 3-point line, was 1-of-5 from behind the arc, 3-of-11 from the field and scored 12 points.

Still, Maquoketa found a way.

\"This has kind of been our season,\" Maquoketa head coach Matt Hartman said. \"We've been poised, and we've won games with our heart. Tonight, we called timeout late in the fourth quarter and said, 'Let's just keep our poise and toughness,' ... I give a ton of credit to the kids.\"

Maquoketa won the first two meetings by an average of 16 points but never led by more than nine Thursday night, a 26-17 lead early in the third quarter after holding a 24-17 edge at halftime.

A key point in the game came late in the third quarter. After battling back, Central DeWitt took a 32-30 lead on a 3 from Tucker Kinney and forced a missed shot on the other end. Kinney came down with the rebound but had the ball ripped out of his hands by Atienza, a sophomore, who dropped in a layup to tie the game.

The Sabers never led again.

\"Just didn't want the season to be over. Give them everything you've got in the last minutes,\" said Atienza, who scored six points in the game. \"You've just got to have the mindset that that's your ball and stop those chances.\"

Hartman said if Central DeWitt had gone up by two possessions at that point, the result could have been very different.

\"That was a huge play, and I'm so happy for (Atienza). He's been working so hard,\" Hartman said. \"If we go down multiple possessions and they sit on the ball or put some pressure on us, I don't know if it's the same outcome. We made some plays like that down the stretch when we had to.\"

Still, Central DeWitt kept the game close, forcing two more ties and cutting the lead to 44-43 with 2:43 left in the game.

Becker hit a basket to up the score to 46-43, and the Sabers missed shots on their next two possessions, allowing the Cardinals to move ahead by five, 48-43.

Central DeWitt once again came back to cut the score to 49-47 with 34.9 seconds left before Shanahan and Becker closed out the game at the free throw line.

Central DeWitt outrebounded Maquoketa 36 to 25 but turned the ball over 15 times in the game and missed eight free throws, unable to quite take advantage of the chances Maquoketa gave them.

Alex McAleer returned from an injury suffered just 45 seconds into the game to score eight points, one of three Sabers to reach that figure, while Drew Kueter led the team with 12 rebounds.

\"This was a resilient group. I felt like we had a great plan going in,\" Central DeWitt head coach Grady Gallagher said. \"At their place, the kids handled their environment. Just a few key plays, a few turnovers, a few missed free throws, that's the difference, and against good teams you can't have mistakes like that.\"

Maquoketa won just 15 combined games the past two years. Now, the Cardinals are a game away from their first state tournament berth since 1987.

\"We're definitely looking forward to it,\" Shanahan said. \"We split with (Marion) earlier in the season. We played them once down there, and they kind of whooped our butt. We'll have to have a great week of practice and hopefully get the 'W' when we get down there.\"

NORMAL\u00a0\u2014 Carlee Camlin and Brea Beal had seen enough of the tears and heartbreak. There was no way it was going to happen this time.

Leading by just one point with 57.1 seconds left, the Rock Island girls' basketball team found a way. In their fifth try, the Rocks defeated Edwardsville, 51-45 in the Class 4A Normal West Sectional title game on Thursday.

\"This is such a sweet feeling right now,\" Camlin said, with tears of joying streaming down her cheeks. \"We have seen a lot of tears the last few years. Brea and I said early in the season 'We are not going to see that sight again.'\"

Beal could concur. She has been preaching since Day 1 that this year was going to be different. She said that again before the postseason started.

\"Back before the playoffs started I told the team I am refusing to lose this year,\" Beal said. \"If I refuse, I expected everyone else to refuse. They understood we had to get this done.\"

The No. 2-ranked Rocks (30-1) will play No. 10-ranked Mother McCauley, a 26-25 winner over Homewood-Flossmoor. No. 3-ranked Edwardsville bows out at 30-3.

It was not easy playing against Edwardsville, one of the state's top programs.

The Rocks jumped out to a 10-point lead early, but Edwardsville got back in it. The Rocks went up 10 again in the second quarter, and the Tigers battled back. RI went up 10 in the third quarter and Edwardsville got close again.

The key? The Tigers never once took a lead in the game. It also helped that Hannah Simmer hit five of eight free throws and tied her career-best set in last Thursday's regional final against Moline with 20 points.

\"I'm just happy that we never have to talk about the curse again,\" RI coach Henry Hall said. \"We're playing with two sophomores and a freshman and never lost our composure when they got close.\"

Those \"young ones,\" as the Rocky coaches and players call them, came up huge. When the team was struggling to make a shot in the fourth quarter, freshman Imari McDuffy split the zone and swished a teardrop in the lane to put the Rocks up by six.

\"Coach Shavonn\u00e9 (Brewer) told me the lanes were there and to drive and kick for a 3 or shoot the teardrop,\" McDuffy said. \"I knew it was going in; I was not about to panic.\"

The Tigers whittled the lead to one and then gained all of the momentum after a lane violation gave them the ball with 57.1 seconds left. Beal grabbed her 10th rebound of the night and was fouled. She calmly made both charity tosses.

\"We kept telling ourselves 'This is just another game' and we expected to win,\" Beal said. \"For sure, when the game is big, I make my free throws.\"

Beal finished 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. She had 20 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks.

The Tigers missed another 3, and sophomore Brooklynn Larson grabbed the rebound and got fouled with the lead at 48-45. Larson calmly buried both charities to make it a five-point lead with less than a half minute and secured the win.

\"I tried to hide my nerves, but I sure had them,\" Larson said. \"There was a lot of pressure. When I got fouled I had to calm down, focus and make the shots. I was pretending I was the only one in the gym.\"

The key for the Rocks was their ability to never get scared or nervous.

\"We were focused, and we stayed together,\" Camlin said. \"Our thing was just play defense, and when they scored, we had to score.\"

Added Hall, \"We knew when we won Monday, we were not walking out of here without a win. We got the defensive stops at the end, we rebounded and we made free throws.\"

The win may have been the most satisfying Beal has had in a superlative career, but the two-time reigning Illinois Ms. Basketball expects it to not be her last.

\"It means a lot,\" Beal said. \"I am excited through the roof, but we also know we have a another one Monday.\"

Brittney Litton became a rare three-time All-State girls' basketball selection Thursday by the Illinois Associated Press.

The Wethersfield senior was named to the five-player first-team in Class 1A to lead a list of three local stars earning recognition in voting by sportswriters and broadcasters across the state.

Orion's Danielle Taets (2A) and Morrison's Peyton Tegeler (1A) also were picked to their respective five-player second teams.

Litton tied Concord Triopia's double-double dominator Anna Burrus for third overall in the 1A voting with 76 points. That trailed only Notre Dame-bound Anaya Peoples (99 points) of top-ranked defending champion Danville Schlarman, and her foil in the state semifinals today at Illinois State University's Redbird Arena, Anna Heffren (95) of No. 2 Lewistown.

Schlarman's other Division I college signee, Xavier recruit Capria Brown (70), rounded out the 1A first team.

For Litton, Thursday's announcement followed up second-team honors from last season, and honorable mention as a sophomore in 2016-17.

Litton, a 5-foot-8 guard, finished as her school's all-time leading scorer with 2,210 points. She averaged 20 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists for a 20-10 sectional qualifier this season. Litton is headed to Parkland Junior College to play volleyball.

Taets, also a 5-8 senior guard, averaged 19.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 3.1 steals for a 16-14 finisher. She ended up 15 points shy of tying former All-State center Cassidy Clark for the school's all-time scoring mark, finishing second with 1,360 career points. Class 1A's defending state champion in the triple jump and 100 high hurdles is bound for Division I Illinois State in track.

Tegeler, also a senior, averaged a double-double (21 points, 14 rebounds) despite being the focal point for opposing defenses for the 3-23 Fillies. The 6-foot center finished with 1,232 points and 917 rebounds in her career.
