NEVADA, Mo. —
Nevada’s boys continued a “solid stretch of basketball” at the expense of Webb City on Tuesday.
The Tigers held off the Cardinals 67-65 in the nonconference clash of former Southwest Conference rivals.
Webb City (15-4) came up short against the Tigers (12-6) despite a strong comeback in the final period by the Cardinals. They outscored the Tigers 27-11.
Said Nevada coach John McNeley: “Our kids have played a solid stretch of basketball on both ends of the floor. It’s a team that has grown resulting from the players’ coming to grips with their roles.
“They’ve expanded offensive roles and we’re getting contributions from a lot of players,” McNeley said.
Silas Smith had 28 points for Nevada. Nathan Colopy added 20 and Lane Ketterman had 12.
Webb City received 22 points from Kohl Slaughter, 18 from Phoenix Johnson and 11 from Nate Brown. Johnson and Slaughter combined for 19 points in the fourth period.
Parkview boys 66, Joplin 35
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Erik Durham and Nathan Reichert combined for 40 points as Parkview dominated the Eagles in the second half of the Ozark Conference game.
The Vikings (16-4, 2-2 Ozark) led 26-18 at halftime, and then outscored Joplin 22-13 in the third quarter and 18-4 during the final eight minutes.
Durham popped in four 3-point goals to account for half of his 24 points, and Reichert contributed 16.
Daniel Stokes tallied 11 points for Joplin (12-6, 2-2), seven of them in the first quarter when Eagles center Adam St. Peter sat on the bench after two early fouls.
“The early fouls hurt, and our guard play was not good,” Joplin coach Jeff Williams said. “We turned it over 17 times, and a lot of them were converted into easy buckets for them.”
St. Peter, Abe Hueller and Connor McCord all had six points, and Charlie Brown, the Eagles’ season scoring leader, was limited to four points.
