The Muscatine Muskies hosted the top MAC programs in their last three home games and went to overtime in all three of them. The Muskies beat #1 PV in OT and fell to Bettendorf and an game with North Scott would be the rubber match. Matt Shellabarger, Duncan Snider, Ben Morgan, and Brandon Kovach played their last regular season home game at the Muscatine fieldhouse.
This group of seniors led the way, but a group of dynamic sophomores took the spotlight. North Scott Sophomore Corvon Seales was the second leading scorer for the Lancers with 18 pts. Muscatine’s dynamic Sophomore Joe Wieskamp led Muscatine with 25 points. Wieskamp hit a huge three-point basket to tie the game with just under two minutes to play in overtime and North Scott took the lead with 10 seconds to play 49-47 with a basket by Drew Bofelli who had 20 points on the night.
Muscatine inbounded the ball to Wieskamp and three-point shot rattled around the rim and out. Ben Morgan’s game tying shot at the buzzer fell just short and Muscatine was defeated 50-47.
