I could not have asked for any more effort and heart from them.”

After the Bulldogs tied the score at 13, Scheef and Cook hit back-to-back treys to make it 19-13. The Bulldogs cut the lead back to 21-20. A third Scheef trey gave the Warriors a 24-20 lead at the break.

“I am very proud of our kids’ heart, and the way they battled,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “We left a lot of points on the floor in the third quarter with missed free throws. Auburn made the plays and the shots that they needed to, to advance. I would have loved to have had Blake Lacey and a healthy Winston Cook for this game, but that is the way athletics goes sometimes.”

Cook led Wahoo with 17 points. Scheef added 14. Thomas Waido added 6 points and 5 steals.

The Warriors were outrebounded 31-27. Wahoo drops to 24-4, and will face 27-1 Ogallala in the third place game tomorrow morning at Lincoln Southeast. Auburn will face North Bend Central in the C-1 State Championship tomorrow morning at Pinnacle.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Grand Island Central Catholic Crusaders 58-57 in a thriller on Saturday afternoon in Wahoo.

The Crusaders led 15-12 after one quarter of play. GICC extended the lead to 18-12 early in the second quarter. The Warriors then went on a 10-0 run to take a 22-18 lead. Thomas Waido had 5 of the 10 points in the run, Winston Cook had 3, and Karson Hesser added two free throws to put the Warriors up by 4. A GICC trey at the buzzer tied the game up at 26 heading to the halftime break.

GICC jumped out to leads of 34-29, and 37-32 midway through the third quarter. Two free throws and a short jumper from Trey Scheef, followed by a Waido free throw, tied the score at 37. A Blake Lacey drive and bucket to close the third quarter put the Warriors up 43-40 after three.

A Cook bucket put Wahoo up 45-40 to start the fourth. The Crusaders then scored the next 5 points to tie the game at 45. Cook then took over, scoring on the next three possessions, capped by a trey to put Wahoo up 52-45.

A Scheef lay up made it 54-45, giving the Warriors their largest lead of the game at 9. Following a GICC basket, Lacey added two free throws to keep the lead at 9, at 56-47, with 3:30 left. From there, GICC came charging back. A trey and a driving bucket cut the lead to 56-52. A Lacey free throw made the lead 5 at 57-52. A Crusader trey cut the lead to 57-55. A Waido free throw put Wahoo up 58-55, and another Crusader bucket made it 58-57. 

The Warriors turned it over with 30 seconds left, giving GICC a chance for the win. The Crusaders got up two three-point shots in the last seven seconds, that would have won the game, but both shots were off the mark, giving the Warriors the exciting win.

“We did a lot of good things,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “I thought we competed hard. We knew it would be a grind-it-out sort of game. We put ourselves in great position with four minutes to play, and a 9-point lead, but we had some defensive breakdowns, and some bad turnovers, that allowed GICC a chance to win the game at the end. We have been on the short end of a couple of those this year, so we will take the win.”

Cook had a monster night, finishing with 30 points on just 14 shots from the field. Cook was 11-14 from the field, and 6-10 from the line, to go with 12 boards. Lacey and Waido each added 9 points. Hesser led Wahoo with 6 boards, while Waido added 5. 

Wahoo out-rebounded GICC 29-23.

Wahoo forced 23 Lexington turnovers, while committing just 11. Lexington owned a 32-23 lead on the glass, though.

Wahoo improves to 6-2 and will face Seward tomorrow in the Holiday Tournament Finals. Lexington drops to 4-4.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Lincoln Lutheran Warriors 67-45 on Tuesday night in Wahoo.

Wahoo jumped out to a 6-0 lead on back-to-back treys from Winston Cook and Blake Lacey. After a Gerardo Madrid trey and basket from Lacey, Wahoo led 16-6. Lincoln Lutheran would score the last eight points of the quarter to make the score 16-14 after one.

The game was close throughout the second quarter, and Wahoo led at the break 26-25.

Wahoo opened the game up in the third quarter. A Thomas Waido basket, followed by a Karson Hesser bucket, and a Trey Scheef three-point play, pushed the lead to 33-25. Following a Lincoln Lutheran free throw, Scheef scored, followed by two more Waido buckets, a Lacey lay up and a Lacey trey to make it 46-28. That capped a 20-3 run to start the second half. The quarter ended with Wahoo up 51-32, and in control of the game. 

“I was really pleased with the third quarter. We started being more aggressive against their 1-3-1 defense, and we were able to get our hands on a lot of passes and get our offense started in transition,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Thomas Waido had a huge game for us. This was a good win against a good team.”

Waido led Wahoo with 20 points on 9-11 shooting from the field, to go with 8 boards, 8 steals, 5 assists, and zero turnovers. Lacey added 18 points, 5 steals, and 6 assists. Cook had 15 points and 8 boards.

Wahoo forced 21 Lincoln Lutheran turnovers, while committing just 11.

Yutan doesn't make it easy for defending Class C-1 champ Wahoo as old rivalry resumes
    (by Stu Pospisil / Omaha World-Herald, 12/17/2018)

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Yutan Chieftains 71-64 on Monday night in Yutan.

The game was tied early at 10-10. Baskets from Blake Lacey, Thomas Waido, and six points from Winston Cook helped Wahoo take a 21-13 lead after one quarter.

A put-back at the end of the second quarter from Gerardo Madrid sent Wahoo to the locker room with a 39-28 lead.

Midway through the third quarter, a Cook basket gave Wahoo their largest lead of the game at 54-34. The Chieftains scored the next seven points to cut the lead to 54-41. A Cook trey pushed the lead back to 16 at 57-41, and the quarter ended with Wahoo up 57-44.

“We played well at times,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “We did a nice job of building the lead to 20, and then we did not finish like we need to. Yutan has a really nice team and hit some deep shots to help them climb back into the game. Winston had a big game offensively again for us. Thomas Waido and Karson Hesser both played well for us also.”

The Warriors got the ball back and had a chance to win it.  A three-point attempt was off the mark and the tip in at the buzzer did not go in, and Aurora escaped with the overtime win.

“It was a very exciting high school basketball game,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Even though it did not go our way, it was fun to be a part of a great game like that. I was really proud of how our kids battled back in the second quarter and how they competed throughout the game. We had some inexperienced kids out on the floor, and I think they really grew up tonight. Baylor Schierman is a terrific basketball player, just as he was on the football field. Our inability to keep them off the glass to prevent second chance points, and our shot selection are things we have to get better at.”

Lacey led the Warriors with 30 points on 6-12 shooting from behind the arc. Cook added 21 points, 7 boards, and 5 assists. Hesser added 10 points and 5 boards. Scheef contributed 9 points. Waido added 6 boards.
