BAXTER – A cold start to the second half proved costly for Collins-Maxwell-Baxter against Nevada Jan. 21 in Baxter.

The Raiders only trailed by five at the half, but Nevada’s Alli Fey canned two 3-pointers to start the third quarter. The Cubs continued to roll the rest of the half behind the play of Fey and center Kati Cassabaum, while CMB struggled to find any rhythm on offense, scoring only 12 points over the final 16 minutes in a 55-30 loss to the No. 5 team in Class 3A.

CMB actually led early in the second quarter.

Nevada jumped out to a 15-8 lead, but two baskets from Mikayla Eslinger and a Lexi Breon bucket pulled CMB within one. With five minutes, 46 seconds remaining in the quarter, Mackenzie Schmitz hit a pair of free throws to give CMB a 16-15 advantage.

Two baskets from Cassabaum and a Claire Ausman free throw put Nevada up 20-16, and the Cubs never trailed after that.

CMB shot just 34 percent from the field and the Raiders were especially cold from the foul line, making just 5 of 16 free throws. Nevada shot only 38 percent from the field and 7 of 14 from the line, but the Cubs did make six 3-pointers to CMB’s three and win the rebounding battle by a 38-29 margin.

Breon finished with 12 points and four assists for CMB. Abbie Haupert – CMB’s leading scorer – was held to eight points, but she grabbed 12 rebounds and added three assists, one steal and one block.

Eslinger ended up with eight points and two rebounds and Schmitz finished with two points.

Fey paced Nevada with 18 points. Cassabaum added 16 points, 10 rebounds and one block and Megan Pringnitz finished with three points, seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals for the Cubs.
