Friday, February 24, 2006

The Bell City boys basketball team had its 14-game win streak snapped by host Doniphan in a 75-62 loss Thursday night.

Bell City, a Class 1 team, had a 54-52 advantage with just over six minutes to play, but Doniphan (22-3 and ranked No. 6 in Class 3) sank the Cubs with a 14-2 run over the next 3 minutes.

Jeff Liggins led the Cubs with 19 points. Nick Niemcyzk netted 18, and Phillip Gross added 10.
