Don Bosco wins first ever Boys State Basketball win

Posted: Updated:

 Don Bosco, Gilbertville’s first ever state tournament win went down to the final whistle in Monday morning’s Class 1A quarterfinals. The Dons (23-3) held off a comeback attempt from Siouxland contender George-Little Rock and forced a tough 3-point heave at the buzzer to win 60-57. It was Don Bosco’s first appearance at state since 1988 and its first win in three tries in Des Moines.

Don Bosco shot 54 percent before halftime and outrebounded the longer Mustangs, frequently attacking the basket through point guard Zach Huff (six assists) and Jack Kelley, who finished with a game-high 17 points. The Dons also made 17 of their 21 free throws in the tight game, clinching their advantage with Huff’s make with 10 seconds left.

The Dons will play top-seeded North Linn (27-0) in Wednesday’s Class 1A semifinals at 2 p.m
