Feb. 13—NEW SHARON — Lynnville-Sully's boys' basketball team was outscored by 12 points in the second and fourth quarters on the road against North Mahaska on Friday night and that was too much to recover from.

Corder Noun Harder had a career-high 24 points and added three rebounds, five assists and four steals, but the Hawks shot 34 percent from the floor and missed seven free throws in a five-point loss.

Preston Rodibaugh put in 19 points and grabbed five rebounds, Mason Jansen tallied seven points and four rebounds and Conner Maston finished with three points and 11 boards.

Klayton Van Dyke had six rebounds, Ryan Annee pulled down four boards and Carter Dunsbergen grabbed three rebounds in the loss.
