For the third straight year, Hiawatha and Troy met on the basketball court with originally scheduled early December games made up on Thursday night in Troy. Hiawatha boys completed a fourth quarter comeback to finish off the road sweep. 

GIRLS = Hiawatha 46, Troy 26

Hiawatha jumped to a 10-2 lead and was ahead 26-8 at halftime while taking advantage of 16 Troy turnovers in the first two quarters. The Redhawks hit seven three-pointers and led by as many as 31-points before improving to 9-6 on the season. 

Troy was only outscored 20-18 in the second half and only had a handful of turnovers in the second half while using an 11-2 fourth quarter to avoid a running clock before falling to 4-11 on the season. Reagen Hill scored nine points to lead the Trojans who failed to make a three-pointer on the night. 

Hiawatha got a career offensive night from Kate Madsen who hit three triples and scored 13 points. Clara LIndstrom and Josie Delaney combined for all 16 of their points in the second quarter, which the Hawks won by a 16-4 margin.  In the Jasper coaching battle of brothers on the court they once played, Brady improved to 3-0 against older brother Derek. 

BOYS = Hiawatha 48, Troy 42

Troy ran out to an early 8-2 advantage and never trailed in the first three quarters of the game. Jerrit Norris had 12 points and Keaton Neuman added 8 in the first half as the Trojans built a 29-21 halftime lead. However, neither of those players scored in the final 16 minutes as Hiawatha used a 3-2 zone to shut down the inside and get back in the game.  

Still trialing 39-37 entering the fourth period, Hiawatha took their first lead of the night 40-39 on a trifecta by Alex Rockey with 6:30 remaining. Troy would tie the score at 42 with five minutes remaining, but did not score the rest of the night as Hiawatha hit four free-throws in the final minute to outscore Troy 11-3 in the last period and earn the win.  

Hiawatha got 21 points from Carson Gilbert and Alex Rockey scored 7 of his 15 in the fourth quarter as the Hawks improved their record to 4-10. Troy got 11 points from Camden Anderson in the loss and was outscored 27-13 in the second half before falling to a 7-8 record on the season.
