By lay Klein, coach The Kimball Cubs hosted the Eden-Valley-Watkins Eagles last Tuesday night, Feb. 5. The Eagles jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead to start the game. The Cubs answered, and with 4:50 remaining in the half, they trailed by a 17-12 score. EV-W led at the half 19-16. In the second half, the Cubs shot the ball much better from the field (10/16). With just under seven minutes to play, Kimball held a 4-point lead at 31-27. The score remained close and with under 20 seconds to play, the Eagles tied the score at 40 all. Cameron Hunt was fouled on the ensuing pos- session and made one of two free- throws to give the Cubs the lead. A desperation shot at the buzzer by the Eagles was off as the Cubs claimed the 41-40 victory. Cameron Hunt led the scor- ing attack with 11 points. Pres- ton Peglow and Jarred Merchant added 9 and 8, respectively. Hunt and Peglow each had two steals. Austin Roerick led the rebounding effort with seven. Cameron Hunt handed out five assists. The Cubs moved to 4-4 in conference play and 10-8 overall. Huskers sweep Cubs in Conference play Kimball traveled to Holding- ford last Friday, Feb. 8, to take on the Huskers. The Cubs started out slowly, once again, trailing 6-0 early in the contest. Poor shoot- ing from the field and the free- throw line continued to plague the Cubs. Kimball was 3/12 (25 per- cent) from the field and 13/24 (54 percent) from the free-throw line in the first half. The Cubs trailed by 10 at the break, 29-19. With a renewed energy in the second half, the Cubs worked themselves back into the game. They trailed by only three (43-46) with 3:33 to play. Mathias Hen- nen's three-point shot cut the Husker lead to one with 3.4 sec- onds remaining. Kimball stole the inbounds pass, but was unable to get a shot off before the buzzer sounded. Holdingford defeated the Cubs 56-55, and swept them in conference play this season. Jarred Merchant led the Cubs in scoring with 15 points. Joey Von- Wahlde and Cameron Hunt each chipped in with nine. Hunt also added four assists and five steals. Austin Roerick hauled down eight rebounds. The loss put the Cubs at 10-9 on the season.
