KCHA Sports Report (2/27)

Basketball With Dark Background On A Wood Gym Floor

In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet boys basketball team was in Denver taking on Waverly-Shell Rock in a Class 3A Sub-State 2 Final.  It was a classic Charles City vs Waverly battle as it was close and physical throughout the game.  The Go-Hawks pushed their four-point lead at halftime to eight at the end of the third quarter and then hit thirteen free throws in the final minutes to take down the Comets 55-43. Jack Molstead had 14 points to lead Charles City, Mike Cranshaw had 12 and Cade Hemaseth had 11.  The Comet boys basketball team finishes their season with a record of 18-5.

The Iowa Hawkeye Men’s Basketball team is getting ready to take part in the Big Ten Tournament.  Iowa will have a first round match-up with Illinois tomorrow.  The Hawkeyes have lost in their first Big Ten tourney matchup each of the last four years but it’s not a pattern that concerns head coach Fran McCaffery.

Iowa came from 20 down to knock off Illinois earlier this season .

3 McCaffery says his team is excited for the opportunity that awaits.

4 Illinois provides challenges in the opening matchup for McCaffery.

Tip-off tomorrow is scheduled for 4:30 and you can tune into our sister station 951 The Bull for all of the coverage starting with a pre-game at about 3:30.
