Glenwood boys basketball coach Curt Schulte used two adjectives to describe his team’s 56-55 double-overtime victory over Clarinda on

Saturday.

“See-saw” and “nail-biter.”

After battling for four quarters and two overtimes, with neither team leading by more than six points, Robby King’s rebound and layup with five-seconds left gave Glenwood its fourth victory in a row.

“This was a match up of two pretty evenly matched teams,” said Schulte. We had opportunities to win it in regulation if we had hit our free throws but this was a good solid conference road win for us.”

The Rams (4-3 overall, 4-2 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) improved to 3-0

in the district with the win, Glenwood’s fourth straight win after dropping its opening three games.

Glenwood appeared to be in control of the game after building a six-points third quarter lead over the Cardinals. But Clarinda would battle back in the fourth quarter with a 11-5 run to push the game into the first extra frame.

King’s gamewinner came just a few seconds after Dylan Blankenship’s layup knotted the score at 31-31.

King led the Rams with a game-high 17 points. Kirk Porter added nine and Cole Darrow eight.

Cy Williams led Clarinda with 16 points.
