  • Rams fall 65-40 in state opener

    DES MOINES - In its historic post-season run, the Glenwood boys basketball team rallied three times over favored opponents to reach the state tournament.

    Tuesday, in its first state tournament appearance in 63 years, the Rams dug themselves a hole they couldn’t dig out of.

    Top-seeded Williamsburg sprinted out to a 13-2 lead and never let Glenwood back in the game in a 65-40 victory in the quarterfinals at the Iowa State Basketball Tournament at Wells Fargo Arena.

  • BOYS STATE BASKETBALL PREVIEW

  • The Boys of '52

    Harry Truman was in the White House, TV was still in its infancy and the Glenwood boys basketball team was in the Iowa State Basketball Tournament for the first time.

    The year was 1952.

    Tuesday, the Rams make a historic return trip to state - taking on Williamsburg in the Class 3A quarterfinals at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

    It's been so long since the Glenwood boys last played at state (63 years), the school can’t locate a trophy or a plaque from that season.

  • Knight comeback comes up short...

    DES MOINES - A first half of 29 percent shooting and a near eight minute scoring drought while getting down 33-22 would be enough to dampen almost any coach’s mood.

    Not Fremont-Mills Coach Rod Williams.

    “There’s no quit in these kids. I knew, at halftime, I had no doubt, this game would be decided in the last possession,” Williams said after the game.

    Williams was right.

  • Knights headed to state...

    RED OAK – As Adair-Casey clawed back in the fourth quarter of the Class 1A, Region 8 final Monday night, Fremont-Mills guard Macy Williams knew her team needed to do something to keep their state tournament dreams alive.

    Williams did plenty of attacking in the fourth quarter.
