No doubt who's getting that ball! Warrior senior Quinn McGill lives up to his reputation as a defensive powerhouse during Saturday's State Championship against Boone Central. McGill's key defensive play at the end of the game prevented Boone from getting into scoring position in the final seconds of the game.

The first three minutes of the fourth quarter were scoreless for both teams. A Boone Central jumper with 4:39 left gave the Cardinals the 36-35 lead. Stuart’s fourth trey of the game put Wahoo up 38-36. Two free throws from Boone tied the score at 38 with 3:50 left. A B. Scheef assist to Abbott put Wahoo up 40-38 with 3:10 left. A Boone Central trey put them back up 41-40 with 2:25 left. An Abbott assist to Stuart for his fifth trey of the game put the Warriors up for good at 43-41 with 1:59 left.

Following some missed shots on the next couple of possessions, the Cardinals were fouled on a shot in the paint. They made one of two free throws to cut the lead to 43-42 with 24 seconds left. Stuart was fouled with 18 seconds left and hit two big free throws to make it 45-42.

Following misses on both ends, the Cardinals had one last chance to go the length of the floor with seven seconds left. As the Cardinals headed up court, McGill knocked the ball away and by the time the Cardinals retrieved it, all they could do was throw up a meaningless shot from 60 feet away that fell way short of the mark, and the Warriors had their first Championship in 15 years!

“I am so incredibly proud of our kids. What a great championship game against a great team in Boone. Our kids competed and made just enough plays to get it done!” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Brook Stuart hit some huge shots for us today. We could not have got it done without his shooting. Quinn McGill made a huge defensive play at the end, just as he has done all season long. Jonathan Abbott made some big plays today, as he had just an incredible state tournament!”

Stuart led the Warriors with 17 points on 5-10 shooting from three-point range to go with the two crucial free throws with 18 seconds left. Abbott had ten points and seven boards. B. Scheef had eight points and seven boards. McGill added six points and six boards. J. Scheef added seven rebounds.

The win capped off an undefeated season with a 29-0 record. Boone Central ended with a 23-7 record.

The Wahoo Warriors held off a furious second half rally by the Wayne Blue Devils to hold on for the 56-49 win in the State Tournament Semi-Finals.

Wahoo, for the second straight day, got off to a great start and built a big lead early. Senior Jonathan Abbott scored nine early points for the Warriors. Two Tyler Kavan free throws gave Wahoo an early 17-4 lead. A Brook Stuart trey to close the quarter put Wahoo up 20-6 after one quarter.

An Abbott jumper early in the second quarter gave Wahoo its largest lead of the game of 18 points at 26-8. The Blue Devils then chipped away at the lead and cut the deficit to 13 by halftime at 31-18.

The Blue Devils then cut into the Warrior lead early in the third quarter and cut the lead to eight at 32-24. A Stuart trey pushed the Warrior lead back to 37-26. Quinn McGill followed with two free throws on the next possession to make it 39-26. The Blue Devils then went on a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 39-33. An Abbott bucket closed the quarter with Wahoo up 41-33.

Wayne then scored the first five points of the fourth quarter to make it 41-38. Two Abbott free throws made it 43-38. A Wayne trey cut the lead to two at 43-41 with 5:00 minutes left.  

The Warriors did not panic though, and then made a run of their own. Two Abbott free throws made it 45-41. Following a Wayne miss, Abbott hit another free throw to make it 46-41. Another Wayne missed shot was followed by a Warrior miss, but a big McGill offensive rebound saved the possession. McGill was fouled and hit two free throws to make it 48-41. Two more Abbott free throws pushed the lead to 50-41. A McGill steal and two free throws capped a 9-0 lead that allowed the Warriors to retake control and put Wahoo up 52-41. The Warriors then hit four more free throws in the final minute, two by Ben Scheef and two by McGill to seal the win.

“Our kids just did a great job of not panicking when they made their run. They had all the momentum, and things were not going very well for us, but our kids kept playing and made some big free throws when they needed them. Jonathan Abbott just had a tremendous day for us. He made big shot after big shot for us all day! Quinn McGill made some huge hustle plays for us, and knocked down some very big free throws at crucial times,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Abbott led the Warriors with 30 points on 11-14 shooting from the field, to go with three steals. McGill had ten points on 8-8 shooting from the line, including 6-6 in the fourth quarter.

The Warriors shot 36 free throws to just seven for Wayne.

Wahoo improves to 28-0 and advances to the State Finals this afternoon where they will face Boone Central.

They kept their composure, kept battling, and we got the momentum swung back around. They played like a veteran team down the stretch, and made the plays that we needed to make,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Brook Stuart hit some huge free throws and treys tonight when we needed them, especially early in the fourth quarter. Ben Scheef made some big plays offensively for us, and his free throws in the fourth quarter were huge. Quinn McGill again played so hard and does so many great things for us. Tyler Kavan and Jonathan Abbott both did a great job tonight, as did Jake Scheef and Jake Wilson off the bench. It was a great team win over a very good team!”

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Bishop Neumann Cavaliers 51-45 in the Sub-District Final on Wednesday night at Columbus High School.

Neumann was up 7-4 in the first quarter, when Brook Stuart hit a trey, was fouled, and converted the free throw for the four-point play to put Wahoo up 8-7. On the next possession, Stuart hit another trey to put Wahoo up 11-7. The quarter ended with Wahoo up 13-12.

A Quinn McGill lay up put Wahoo up 15-14. A Jake Wilson three-point play tied the game up at 18 a minute later. A Jonathan Abbott steal and assist to Jake Scheef put Wahoo up 20-18. The half ended with Neumann up 22-21.

A Ben Scheef lay up gave the Warriors the lead for good at 23-22. The teams would trade baskets throughout the third quarter, with the lead going back and forth between one point and three for Wahoo. The score was Wahoo 33-32 with 2:00 left in the third, when B. Scheef hit back-to-back treys to put Wahoo up 39-32 after three quarters.

A Wilson jumper gave the Warriors their largest lead of the night at 41-32 early in the fourth quarter. The Warriors missed a short jumper on the next possession that would have extended the lead to 11.

After a Neumann basket, McGill took the ball the length of the court for a lay up to make it 43-34. A Neumann trey cut the lead to 43-37.  An Abbott free throw made it 44-37. Another Neumann trey made it 44-40. Following a Warrior turnover, two Neumann free throws cut the lead to 44-42 with 4:20 left.

Neumann missed a lay up with 3:30 left that would have tied the game at 44. B. Scheef made one free throw with 1:50 left that made it 45-42. An Abbott steal with 1:20 left got the ball back for Wahoo. A B. Scheef lay up with 1:00 left put Wahoo up 47-42. Two Stuart free throws with 13 second left made it 49-42. A Neumann trey with seven seconds cut the lead to 49-45. Two more Stuart free throws with six seconds left provided the final margin, and allowed Wahoo to escape with the 51-45 win.

“This was a great win for us. Neumann has been one of the hotter teams in C-1 over the second half of the season. I don’t think either team would say that they played their best basketball, but it was a great battle. Our kids competed and found a way to win, which at this point in the season is all that matters. I thought Quinn McGill gave a tremendous effort tonight. Brook Stuart hit some big shots for us tonight. I thought Ben Scheef’s back-to-back treys in the third quarter really sparked up and gave us a little separation,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Stuart led the Warriors with 13 points and four assists. B. Scheef had 11 points and five boards. McGill had eight points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Abbott added seven points and five steals. Wilson had five points and four boards. J. Scheef added seven boards.

The Warriors outrebounded the Cavaliers 35-24.

Wahoo improves to 25-0 and moves on to the District Final Monday night at Midland University, where they will face Boys Town (7:00 p.m. tip-off). Bishop Neumann falls to 19-7, and still clings to wild card hopes.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Columbus Scotus Shamrocks 60-36 on Tuesday night at Columbus High in second round sub-district action.

The first quarter was tight. A Jonathan Abbott jumper at the buzzer put Wahoo up 12-10 after one quarter.

The second quarter stayed tight. Another Abbott jumper at the halftime buzzer put Wahoo up 24-18. Abbott had 12 first half points to give Wahoo the six-point lead.

Wahoo turned up the defensive pressure in the second half. A full court press forced three straight Shamrock turnovers, and the Warriors had increased the lead to 33-18 before Scotus had put up a shot in the second half. Quinn McGill got Wahoo going in the second half with back-to-back jumpers. A three-point play from Ben Scheef, a Brook Stuart jumper and a Jake Scheef lay up put Wahoo up 35-18 before a Scotus jumper broke the run to make it 35-20.

The Warriors would score the next 11 points of the quarter to cap a 22-2 quarter and make it 46-20 after three quarters.

“Scotus ran some junk defense in the first half, and it kind of put us on our heels. We did not attack it the way that we needed to. We had a great third quarter, and really got after it. Our full court pressure really bothered them, and we also had much better ball movement on the offensive end,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Abbott led the Warriors with 20 points on 9-13 shooting from the field, to go with four steals. J. Scheef added 11 points and four assists. McGill had ten points, eight boards and five assists. Stuart had eight points, and B. Scheef added seven points.

Scheef had 15 points on 6-9 shooting from the floor and six boards. Jonathan Abbott added 11 points. Jake Wilson contributed seven points and five boards.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Grand Island Central Catholic Crusaders 52-37 in the final home game of the season.

GICC jumped out to an early lead, and led the entire first quarter behind three treys from the Crusaders’ Brett Wiens, to close the first quarter up 11-9.

Wiens hit his fourth trey of the game on the Crusaders’ first possession in the second quarter to put GICC up 14-9. The Crusaders became very patient and very deliberate towards the end of the first quarter, and early in the second. Wahoo would turn to some full court pressure to increase the tempo and pace of the game.  

The pressure started to wear on GICC, as they would not score again in the half, and the Warriors went on a 19-0 run. Jonathan Abbott’s jumper cut the Crusader lead to 14-11. Tyler Kavan’s trey from the corner tied the game at 14. Another Abbott jumper gave the lead to Wahoo for good at 16-14.  

Abbott added another jumper to increase the lead to 18-14. Ben Scheef followed that with a trey to make it 21-14. A Quinn McGill steal ended with a Kavan assist to B. Scheef for a conventional three-point play to make it 24-14. A Jake Wilson jumper made it 26-14, and Abbott closed out the half with a short jumper to end the run and put the Warriors up 28-14 at halftime.

The Warriors maintained the lead in the third quarter. A McGill steal and lay up closed the third quarter with Wahoo up 38-22.

The Warriors led 42-26 early in the fourth quarter, when Wilson converted two free throws, followed by a Brook Stuart trey and a Kavan lay up to put Wahoo up 49-26, their largest lead of the game.

“Give GICC a lot of credit for coming out and playing very hard. They took it to us for the first eight and a half minutes. I thought our kids responded very well to some adversity,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “We turned up the pressure in the second quarter, and executed better offensively. We played a great second quarter. It was a really good win for us, and a great way to end our final home game for our seniors.”

Senior Abbott led the Warriors with 15 points and four boards. McGill had nine points on 4-4 shooting from the floor, to go with eight boards, three steals, and three assists. B. Scheef added eight points and five boards. Wilson contributed eight points and seven boards.

The Warriors improved to 19-0, while GICC drops to 10-10. Wahoo will travel to Columbus Scotus on Tuesday night to face the Shamrocks.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Elkhorn South Storm 55-53 in the finals of the Holiday Tournament on Saturday night at Wahoo, on a Jonathan Abbott 18-foot jumper with 3.7 seconds left.

In the third quarter, a Kavan steal, which was saved by a diving Quinn McGill, ended on a Kavan assist to Abbott to give Wahoo its biggest lead at 34-28. Wahoo would go the next five minutes without scoring and watch its lead shrink to 34-33. An Abbott basket put the Warriors up 36-33 with 45 seconds left, but Elkhorn South would score twice in the period to lead 37-36 after three quarters.

A Ben Scheef basket followed by an Abbott basket put Wahoo up 40-37. After two Elkhorn South free throws, Abbott scored again to keep Wahoo up 42-39. A three-point play by 6’5” senior Tony Pete tied the game at 42 with 5:05 to play.

Elkhorn South’s J.J. Zumbrennen’s 12-foot pull up jumper with 15 seconds left tied the game up at 53.

Without calling a time out, the Warriors’ Stuart pushed the ball up the court, and found Abbott. Abbott took the ball and drove just inside the top of the key, and his pull up jumper found nothing but net with 3.7 seconds left. The Storm got a three-point attempt off at the buzzer, but the shot was off the mark and the Warriors escaped with a thrilling 55-53 win.

“This was an absolutely terrific high school game. I am so proud of our kids and the way that they competed tonight. What a great effort they gave. Elkhorn South has a great team, and this was just a great win for our kids,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Jonathan Abbott had an amazing game for us. He just came up huge for us, especially in the fourth quarter. Tyler Kavan’s three treys were huge for us. Quinn McGill gave an incredible effort for us. I don’t think I have ever had a kid have a bigger impact on a game, without scoring a point, but Quinn does so many things for us that don’t show up in the scoring column. Brook Stuart had a couple of big treys for us in the first half, and Brook is just such a solid player, and always does the right things for us out there. He is such a steadying influence on the team. Ben Scheef hit two big free throws for us in the final minute. Jake Scheef got a couple of huge offensive rebounds for us in the fourth quarter, and Jake Wilson gave us some really solid minutes off the bench.”

Abbott led the Warriors with 23 point on 11-19 shooting from the field and four assists. Kavan added 13 points and a team-high eight rebounds. Jake Scheef had seven points and five boards. Ben Scheef had six points and seven boards. Stuart had six points. McGill had seven boards and three steals.

A Brook Stuart trey at the end of the first quarter put Wahoo up 14-9. The Warriors would struggle offensively in the second quarter, and went to the halftime break down 26-22.

A Ben Scheef basket and a Jonathan Abbott bucket tied the game up at 26 early in the third. The third quarter ended with a one-point lead for Wahoo at 33-32.

A Quinn McGill steal and Abbott lay up put Wahoo up 35-32. Following a Crusader trey that tied the game, McGill came up with another steal, and Jake Scheef converted a three-point play to put Wahoo up 38-35. Two free throws from Ben Scheef gave the Warriors their largest lead at 40-35.

Back-to-back baskets from Christian cut the lead to 40-39 with a minute to play. An Abbott basket put Wahoo back up 42-39 with a minute left. After a Crusader basket, Jake Scheef was fouled with 35 seconds left, and converted both free throws to put Wahoo up 44-41. The Crusaders missed a trey on the other end. Brook Stuart got the rebound, was fouled and converted both free throws with 13 seconds left to seal the 46-41 win for the Warriors.

“This was a game that somehow we had to find a way to win, and we did. We were not very sharp, and did not shoot it very well, but Christian had a lot to do with that. We made some plays when we needed to down the stretch. Jonathan Abbott’s cut to the basket for a lay up, along with Jake and Brook’s free throws in the last 35 seconds were huge. We were better in the second half. We played better defense, took care of the ball better, and did a really nice job on the glass. It was a good win,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Ben Scheef led Wahoo with 16 points and eight boards. Abbott had 13 points on 6-9 shooting from the floor to go with five boards. Jake Scheef added ten points. Stuart had six boards, while McGill had 5 boards. The Warriors outrebounded the Crusaders 31-21.

We got off to a slow start, but over the final 13 minutes of the first half, we gave up just four points, which was good to see. I thought our kids gave a great effort. We got some good looks offensively in the first half. We just could not get a lot of shots to fall. We played better offensively in the second half. Jake Scheef had a great game for us. I thought Jake Wilson played really well off the bench also and did a great job on the glass. Tyler Kavan and Quinn McGill both did a lot of good things for us, as did Jonathan Abbott,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Jake Scheef led Wahoo with 23 points on 9-12 shooting from the floor, and five rebounds. Jonathan Abbott had 13 points and five boards. Tyler Kavan added 11 points.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the David City Scouts 57-47 at home on Tuesday night.

The first half was a low-scoring affair that stayed tight throughout. Neither team led by  more than four points in the first half. The score was tied at eight after the first quarter, and tied at 19 at halftime.

In the third quarter, a tremendous hustle play by senior Tyler Kavan, when he dove to save a ball from going out of bounds, got the Warriors started. Kavan saved it to Quinn McGill, who knocked down a 15-foot jumper to extend the Warrior lead to 24-19. A Jonathan Abbott trey two minutes later pushed the Warrior lead to eight at 32-24. The third quarter ended with the Warriors up ten at 38-28.

A Brook Stuart trey early in the fourth made it 41-30. The teams traded baskets over the next couple of minutes. An Abbott steal and lay up gave the Warriors their largest lead at 12 at 51-39. Back-to-back treys by the Scouts keyed an 8-0 run that cut the Warrior lead to 51-47 with two minutes left. Two free throws by Ben Scheef with 1:45 left pushed the lead back to six at 53-47. Two free throws apiece from Stuart and Scheef in the final minute provided the final margin at 57-47.

“This was a quality win. David City has a good team, a very experienced team. We knew this would be a battle coming in,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “It was good to see our offense get untracked a little bit in the second half. Jonathan Abbott got his offense going tonight, which we need from him. Quinn McGill’s effort and rebounding have been tremendous, and Tyler Kavan really gave us some great effort plays tonight.”

Abbott led the Warriors in scoring with 20 points. Ben Scheef added 15 points and six boards. McGill had eight points, 11 boards, five steals and three assists. Kavan added eight boards and five assists.

Wahoo out-rebounded the Scouts 32-26 and committed just ten turnovers to 18 for David City.

The Wahoo Warriors used a big first half to hold on and defeat the Seward Bluejays 56-47 on Saturday night.  

The Warriors jumped out to a 22-2 lead in the first 11 minutes of the game. A Brook Stuart trey put Wahoo up 17-2. A Josh Langemeier steal and assist to Quinn McGill made it 19-2. A Jake Scheef drive and bucket, followed by a McGill offensive rebound and free throw, put the Warriors up 20 at 22-2. The half would close with the Warriors up 26-9.  

The third quarter would see the Warriors turn the ball over 11 times after turning it over just six times the entire first half.  Seward cut the lead to 35-27 after three quarters.

A Trey Barnes trey cut the Warrior lead to 3 at 43-40. A Tyler Kavan assist to Jonathan Abbott pushed the lead to 46-40. A basket from Ben Scheef gave Wahoo an eight-point lead at 48-40. Three free throws from Ben Scheef on the next two possessions followed by a McGill basket extended the lead back to 11 at 53-43 with one minute left, and the Warriors were able to hold on for the 56-47 win.

“I thought we played an excellent first half. In the third quarter we did a very poor job of taking care of the ball. Eleven turnovers in a quarter is a bad quarter of basketball,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “It was disappointing to watch a 20-point lead get cut to three; however, the kids showed some poise, and were able to make enough plays down the stretch to allow us to escape with the win.”

Ben Scheef led the Warriors in scoring with 12 points and six boards. McGill had 11 points and a game-high ten rebounds. Jake Scheef had eight points and Kavan added seven points.

Wahoo out-rebounded Seward 33-28, but committed 20 turnovers and shot just 54 percent from the free throw line (20-37).

The Warriors improve to 2-0 and will face the 2-0 David City Scouts on Tuesday night at home.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Bennington Badgers 53-49 in the opening game of the season on Thursday night. Senior Brook Stuart hit four consecutive free throws in the game’s final 20 seconds to give the Warriors the win.

The Badgers jumped out to an 11-4 lead midway through the first quarter. A three-point play and two free throws from Jake Scheef cut the lead to 11-9, and a 15-foot jumper from Jonathan Abbott at the end of the quarter tied the game at 11 after one.

The Warriors slowly opened up a lead on the Badgers. A Preston Raymond feed to Ben Scheef gave Wahoo its largest lead of the night at 26-19. Bennington would cut the lead to 30-28 at halftime.

Wahoo again opened the lead up in the third quarter. Jake Scheef found Ben Scheef under the basket to make it 37-31, but again could not shake Bennington. A Josh Langemeier steal and lay up made it 44-40, but a Bennington basket to close the half made it 44-42 going into the fourth quarter.

The fourth quarter stayed close. A Ben Scheef free throw with 45 seconds to play made it 49-46. After a Badger miss, the Warriors ran some clock. Brook Stuart was fouled with 20 seconds left and made both free throws to put Wahoo up 51-46. A Grant Sieckman trey in the corner cut the lead to 51-49. The Warriors missed a free throw, but a tremendous effort play from Abbott and Quinn McGill on the miss, got the ball back for the Warriors. Stuart was fouled again with six seconds left and converted both free throws to seal the win for the Warriors.

“We did not get off to a good start, but I thought our kids really competed well. They kept their composure, kept battling, and made just enough plays to get it done. Jonathan Abbott played a great first half, and his effort play off the missed free throw in the final 10 seconds was huge. Brook Stuart’s four free throws in the final 18 seconds were clutch. Seniors step up and hit big free throws at crunch time, and that is what Brook did. I thought Jake Scheef really gave us a spark early when we were down early. Quinn McGill gave a tremendous effort tonight, and after a slow start, Ben Scheef played well the final three quarters,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.

Ben Scheef led a balanced Wahoo attack with 14 points. Abbott had 12 points and four steals. Stuart had ten points. Jake Scheef had eight points off the bench, and McGill added seven points and eight boards.

The Warriors will now host the Seward Bluejays on Saturday afternoon.
