DES MOINES – A Tough shooting night kept the Bettendorf Bulldogs from winning their third boys basketball title Saturday night at Wells Fargo Arena.

The top-seeded Bulldogs hit just 16-of-53 shots from the floor (30.2 percent) in dropping the battle of unbeatens 54-36 to Iowa City West. It leaves the Bulldogs with their second state Class 4A runner-up finish in the last six years as the Trojans won their second straight 4A title.

Mississippi Athletic Conference champ Bettendorf couldn't match Iowa City West's height and length inside, not getting any offense in the paint.

The Bulldogs also didn't have an answer for tourney MVP Wyatt Lohaus. The son of former Iowa Hawkeye standout Brad Lohaus scored 22 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out three assists. Just a junior, he has already committed to the University of Northern Iowa.

Jeremy Morgan, whose dad Michael Morgan was a Hawkeye teammate of Brad Lohaus, added nine points for the Trojans.

Kris Klabunde led BHS with nine points and Nicholas Baer added eight.

Bettendorf's Kendall Jacks, who was just 1-for-7 in the title game after two strong outings, was selected to the all-tourney team.

The teams were tied at 7 midway through the first quarter before ICW finished the frame on a 7-0 run. By halftime, with the Bulldogs struggling from the field, the Trojans blew out to a 28-13 lead and never looked back.

Knights rally for third: Davenport Assumption watched Dallas Center-Grimes score the first seven points of Saturday's Iowa Class 3A third-place game, but rallied for a 55-45 victory at Wells Fargo Arena. Nick Schebler scored a game-high 14 points to lead the Knights (19-6) as Matt Vonderhaar added 13 to go with his eight rebounds. MAC Player of Year Billy Daniel scored nine points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds.
