The Nevis boys basketball team extended its winning streak to seven games in a row with a 74-70 victory over Kelliher-Northome at Northome on Feb. 15 and an 85-69 win over Clearbrook-Gonvick at Clearbrook on Feb. 19.

Michael Landquist's 21 points led five players in double figures in the Tigers' Northland Conference win over K-N. Derek Lindow had a double-double of 14 points and 10 assists while Luke DeWulf (14), Ty Warrington (11) and Eddie Kramer (10) also scored in double figures. Ben Soldwisch had seven rebounds, DeWulf had six rebounds and two steals, Landquist had four rebounds and three steals, Kramer had two assists, and Lindow had two steals.

"We gutted out a much-needed conference road win. It was a great game and we were able to get the win," said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer, whose team led 38-34 at the half. "We were able to forge an early lead, which we held throughout the night, but we could never put the game away as Northome kept answering every lead we had with a run of their own. It was another great team effort."

The win gave Nevis an 8-4 record in the conference while the Mustangs fell to 2-11 in the conference and 9-14 overall.

DeWulf and Kramer scored 28 points apiece in leading the Tigers past Clearbrook-Gonvick.

Kramer hit four of his team-record nine 3-pointers early to give Nevis a 20-5 lead before C-G rallied to claim a 38-36 lead at the half. DeWulf's 19 points helped Nevis control the second half.

Lindow (13) and Warrington (10) also scored in double figures while DeWulf completed a double-double with 10 rebounds while adding three assists. Warrington had seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals while Lindow and DeWulf dished out three assists each.

"We knew coming in that we would need to play well. We got off to a great start, going on a 20-5 run to start the game. Clearbrook is not afraid to shoot the 3, and they came storming back to take the lead going into the half," said Kramer. "The second half belonged to us. A big difference in pulling away was that we shot 23 for 27 from the line. It was another impressive road win and team effort for us as we inch closer to tournament time."

The win gave Nevis a 16-7 overall record while the Bears fell to 16-8.
