Cascade beats Van Meter advances to 2A Semifinals

Posted: Updated:

Efficient shooting and stifling zone defense have long been hallmarks of Cascade, Western Dubuque basketball, and Tuesday morning’s Class 2A quarterfinal against No. 3 seed Van Meter was a showcase for just that. The Cougars (24-1) jumped out to an early lead and held Van Meter to a season-low in scoring as coach Jacob Brindle’s squad claimed a 60-47 win at Wells Fargo Arena.

Cascade had four scorers in double figures – Haris Hoffman, Gannon O’Brien, Derek Koppes, and Johnny Supple – and made 11-of-21 shots from 3-point range in the thorough win. The Cougars only committed six turnovers in advancing to the semifinals for the fifth time in program history.
