It’s just about time for championship basketball.>>BJ: This crowd, here at Wells Fargo Arena is ready. Let’s take a look at key to the game here for Springville. What do they need to do, Laura?>>Laura: Well, they knee to handle the pressure of Turkey Valley. They will get out and try to trap all over the floor. They need to get the ball into the middle to avoid those traps. Give them better options. Now, Turkey Valley is averaging or forcing 24 turnovers in the tournament. And they need to set the tempo. They need to make Turkey Valley play five on five.>>BJ: How about Turkey Valley.>>Laura: They will pressure, they force a lot turnovers. They turn those turnovers into points and then they need to move the ball on offense. They don’t want to stand around. They need to get into a good flow when they get into that set. And Springville is going to make them play. They need to move it out the outer circle.>>BJ: Oriels, Wagaman, Mesoraco. Area, Wagaman and flak. It’ll be just up in the middle and Turkey Valley will be owning the both of the basketball. Their closest game all season was a 4 point in the quarter times. Rolling throughout the entire year to a 26-0 record.>>Laura: One of the things to watch early on, first trip to Turkey Valley in the tournament. First time in the title game. Springville has been there before, but they’re young, they have a lot of young players. See if there’s any nerves on either side.>>BJ: Defensive Rebound for the Oriels, they have really limited their opponents, second-chance opportunity this is season. And in fact, coming into the tournament, they were the top defensive team. Here’s Nachazel. Too strong off the glass, and the Rebound comes down to Kenseth Mikayla Nachazel. They’re showing the 2-3 zone. Only four teams have scored more than 32 points this season against Springville of the here’s the three and we have got a foul called underneath. Veteran eventuals here tonight. Rich Larson, Vaughn and Terry McMillen. This will be the last game accident as you take a look at Nate Sanderson. They will be retiring right after this game. In the lane, good g from 13.>>Laura: Nice–bounds play X they went right into the middle of that. Looks like they played zone.>>BJ: Turkey Valley with the early lead the Oriels, get Nachazel. And she’ll nail T. shooting 63% from here in the tournament. And off to Ia good start.>>Brad: Her teammates have done a good job of setting her up and finding her and she moves really well without the basketball, and gets guess herself in position to score.>>BJ: We are tide at two. Ball was entered but deflected back out. Trojans having a tough time eyeing that zone here from Springville.>>Brad: This have you to mute ball in offense. Right now they can standing armed, trying to figure out this 2-3 zone and where the gaps are. And they’re inviting that outside shot right now, nobody for Turkey Valley wants to pull the trigger.>>BJ: 17 footer off the mark. Offensive Rebound and it’s turned over. Menster is up the court with it. And it will stay with Springville. Wearing black and orange. And Turkey Valley, their home white with red numbers and black trim. Here’s gnash. Good move on the interior to get three and she’s got four points.>>Laura: Very similar play is what Turkey Valley ran on their inbound. Get it inside and let the bigs work. So 92 so it’s a 4-2 Springville lead, with about five minutes here to play left in the opening quarter. Three from the outside. Nymeyer. Off the mark and the Rebound to Wagaman. 5’9″ senior, outlet ahead here tameness. Now, Wagaman inside, and the lay-up is there for Alyssa Jaeger, the 5’11” Sophomore checked into the scoring column and it’s a 4–point lead here for Springville at 6-2.>>Laura: What a great look by Wagaman. Almost lost control of T but able to get that diagonal back and get the easy score. And a blocking foul on Kuennen. 6-2 Springville with the lead on Turkey Valley. And we get the first investment player in. Emily Busta in for Turkey Valley. On with Dan Stephan. Nymeyer, 62-12 in three seasons as head coach for Turkey Valley. She coached this poor group of players out to the floor, since they were in June high. Great feed from Wagaman.>>Laura: Coach Sanderson said they missed 15 or so easy lay-ups. They aren’t missing those tonight.>>BJ: They had a 4-point lead with five minutes to play, uncharacteristically, what we have seen over the Springville team, they don’t give up leads down the stretch, but they did if that game. And ended up losing 49-42. And used to the big floor, with the Trojans. Started last week in Cornell college. Paid 5 bucks to rent out Hawkeye arena for an hour and traveled to grand view, and they traveled to Des Moines.>>Laura: It’s all about preparation and figuring out what you to do to I want big game. They’re handling the ball very well. Wagaman with the shot over in the Corner. Those are the things you can think about. You been here before, lost that game last year, then you start thinking what do we need to do to prepare to win that championship game and they put all the pieces in place by going into college-sized gyms.>>BJ: An 8-point lead for special. Good from the wing by Busta!>>Laura: And that’s why she’s in the ball game. 16% of her shots come from three-point range and they needed a little boost, coming off the bench and she responded. Turned over. Reicks steps with it. Tries to go to the rack. It’s loose and on the floor, and the Trojans will come up with it. Those are plays have you phonic. Have you to get down and get after T.>>BJ: Deadly from 14 feet. Her fourth point of the game. Making it a three-point lead here for Springville, their largest lead has been at eight.>>Laura: And that’s her shot. Right in the gap F they can find her right at the free throw line, she’s going to score all night.>>BJ: And traveling called against Turkey Valley. Nymeyer was fading away and took an extra step. Now, we go to the bench, coming if for the Trojans will be Kayla Schaufenbuel. And Wagaman on the floor, lost it and will kick it out. The Oriels have really moved the ball Mr.K. Tell stay with Springville here with 2:11 to play in the opening quarter.>>Laura: Turkey Valley they have got some quick hands. Just reach, trying to deflect the dribble. Knocking it away any way that can. But it sure pays off.>>BJ: Both teams, coming out on the zone and it goes to Wagaman. Had it knocked away and a big block, started in transition here for the Trojans.>>Laura: Kenseth had 21 blocks and picked up one leer and adds another one here.>>BJ: Picked off by Wagaman. Both teams, really turn today over a lot in the semifinals, not very much in the quarters. And earning their bid here to the 1A championship game, and now, it’s another trail over here against Springville.>>Laura: And Springville turn today over 27 times. Now, you might ask a coach, how do you win a ball game when, you only take 26 shots and turn it over 27 times but they sure won that game, and were able to get here and coach Sanderson shook his head and said, I don’t know, they were very efficient with the shots they took. They shot 16 of 26 for 51% 927 turnovers combined for both. Four for Springville. Reicks, closely guarded and here’s Busta. And we’re tide at 10. [Cheers and applause].>>Laura: She’s a player, have you to know where she is. She’s going to move, to find the opening on the perimeter and she gets set up, she’s going to knock them down.>>BJ: Busta will bring it ahead to the front court. Inside 50 seconds to play in the quarter.>>Laura: Very smart move. Didn’t have the numbers. Bring it back out. Get set. Maybe use a little prop. Get a big shot before the end of the quarter.>>BJ: The kick-out and the three by Nymeyer. And Wagaman with the Rebound. We’re tide at 10. Springville had an eight-point lead, it was a race. Now, driving, Wagaman. Kicks it back out. Now, the three by Menster, goodbye Menster!>>Laura: Menster was an all-tournament direction a year ago, averaging 14 points on the season, starting to heat up and people do pay taken to her. She got free that time.>>BJ: Quarter winding down now, inside, five seconds and the Trojans will turn it over yet again. [Horn] NCAA will come into play for Hoogland. Madi Wagaman back in. She’ll come in and Mikayla Nachazel, the freshman who was in for a moment. Stephanie Martin in for the first time. The 5’8″ senior. Wagaman in the front court. And they do get a shot off and it’s just short by Madi Wagaman. Let’s go now to the quarter break here, it really picked up. Let’s go to our sports desk. And Paul Yeager. Paul Yeager let’s find out how these two teams got here. This has been an exciting one. And they had pretty good semifinals as well. Turkey Valley. They faced off against Burlington Notre Dame and it was Shelby Reicks, the stop hop and Jay, and did it again. Good transition bucket for her, uses the glasses in the lane and Morgen Kuennen explodes, hit the jumper from the outside, two headed monster and on this great inbounds play, another one. Turkey Valley advances. 79-77 for the first time in school history. And we saw Springville. They got over Fonda from last year. Newfonda got the best of them. And it was Alyssa Jaeger, she had the board and the put-back and great ball move on the outside and the inside, gets the pass for the lay-up. And that. Mikayla has worked on that inside game. Springville advances down 59-50. We will have a new champion in 1A. BJ. 92 thanks, Paul. Springville when we had a chance to talk to the team, they mentioned how can have they were. They said they had no doubts about coming to Des Moines this year,.>>Laura: Yeah, I think we have seen that, from a lot teams. The Springville has the experience, and I think that loss a year ago, was the motivation to propel them throughout the season and get them back here to Wells Fargo Arena and so just being here. Making the trip, having that experience, just gives you a lot more confidence because you know the ins and outs of what the tournament’s going to bring.>>BJ: Wagaman hits the tough shot over Reicks. She’s had four in the game. 15-10. Springville out in this front. They have not been behind in this one. 15-10, had an eight-point lead. Tied at 10 a moment ago. And now, on a 5-0 run. Reicks in the paint. Soft on the shot and the Rebound to Springville.>>Laura: That’s what you need to do. Attack that 2-3 zone and she found the gap, went right down the middle, just a little cue off the mark. 92 neither team has been to the foul line. Which is odd from what we saw in the semitime game. 46 free-throw shot by Turkey Valley and now, fielded by — the deep three. And that, leading the break.>>Laura: One more step in, and I think she might have had T. a bit out of range, but how about that. NCAA going up with contact. Gets bumped off, and of course, still able to knock it down.>>BJ: She got 8. 39 points coming into this game. Now, with 47 here in the state tournament defended well on the play, and the Rebound to Springville. Jaeger up with it.>>Laura: Everybody collapsed down around her. Springville comes right back, and Turkey Valley needs to talk about T. they feel it slipping away.>>BJ: NCAA, Trojans just don’t have an answer for her on the inside let’s go to the Springville bench and listen to their head coach, flit Sanderson.>>As the ball turns, have you to get over to help side there. Offensively, again, dive for the block and get a lay-up. Hey, shot against shot.>>BJ: They have used social media this year yeah, to really reconnect with their fans, using twitter, YouTube and Facebook. Posted videos and shared highlights throughout the season and it’s been seen internationally.>>Laura: You know, it’s a great way to get your team known around the country, get that name out there, get some exposure. And that’s what social media is all about. A lot of people see the videos and the posts and are following team.>>BJ: Right now, in the 1A title game, they have got the big lead here. 19-10, another turnover here for Turkey Valley. With 5:56 to play here in the first half.>>Brad: Turkey Valley, to extend that defense and bring it out into the back court. They need to push turnovers. That’s when they get out and definite and force those turnovers. Good other way, turn those field intuse points. They put Wagaman down low and they flip flopped and anything right now in the post, they’re muscling everything off the glass.>>BJ: Megan Wagaman, the 5’9″ senior, known to be the giver out of the team. She holds the school record for assists. Now, with six already here in the state championship. Make it seven on the free-throw.>>Laura: L you give and you receive. So you go and you find your teammates. And if you get in the perfect spot. Your teammates for are going to give it right back to you. 92 the if state title game. They’re finding you. Alyssa Jaeger back in the ball game now for the Oriels. Turkey Valley in desperate need of a bucket here, down by 12.>>Laura: They need a little more mowing and try and find coverage. The 2-3 I don’t know is not all that, agressive right now, but they’re extend together. And Turkey Valley doesn’t know how to break it. They’re trying to find the gas they can’t seem to give her the ball.>>BJ: Some deficits so far in the straight tournament. But not.>>Laura: I think they need to look to attack, but they’re going to get another one from Emily Busta. 9233 in the game, now, with nine nine.>>Laura: And that’s what that zone will invite. They will invite that outside shot. Have you to get those hands ready to fire when you have that opening.>>BJ: And that. Firing away. Now with 12.>>Laura: They did the right thing with the ball in the middle. With the pressure. Once they score, Turkey Valley’s going to put that full-court pressure. And have you to be ready for it. And Springville was.>>BJ: Been quiet offensively leading score or this team, gives it up to Busta. The high post and this one’s turned over.>>Laura: The spacing right now for Turkey Valley. Everybody’s bunched to one side, you’ve got to have a little better spacing and they want to move some cutters through the zone.>>BJ: Seven turnovers so far by Turkey Valley. Now a foul here on Busta, that will be her first.>>Laura: That’s all right. Busta trying to make a play. Trying to make something happen, they’re being look for some kind a spark. If you get a spark here in the back court and a quick score, that may be all you need to ignite your offense.>>BJ: A high dribble and it will be called a double dribble here. And they force the turnover and that’s what they’re being look to do. The Oriels had a lot turnovers, but just one turnover in the quarter finals against kingsly Pierson. To the post, good high-low action.>>Laura: Everybody paying attention, and make the lob pass over top, and once they score, they’re going to come out with the pressure.>>BJ: Wagaman. A foul called, away from the ball. Let’s take a look at how Turkey Valley got this bucket.>>Laura: You see three black jerseys and she had the presence of mind to look and it dumped down. Make it the easy two and that’s a great job of team work right there.>>BJ: The foul called on Delaney Lensing. Turkey Valley’s fourth team foul X. back underneath we go.>>Laura: Everything seems to be the right side, they’re, wonderful experiencing that right block. And everybody’s scoring. Whoever posts up down there. They’re responding once they get the ball. They’re making the move to the glass. 92 this will stay with the Trojans. One of five championships to be decided over the next two days here at Wells Fargo Arena and all here on IPTV beautiful A that time, missing from the top of the key.>>Laura: Good job of drawing the defense, realizing you didn’t have the angle.>>BJ: Nachazel. What a first half for Mikayla Nachazel. 14 points.>>Laura: I don’t know if they have had many points outside of the paint. And if it’s working for you, continue to go there until they set it down. 92 and this one, turned over. Here come the Oriels in transition, ahead to Nachazel. Big move, this time, left it a little short. Reicks in the bank. And lays it up and in. Her first bucket of the ball game, came in averaging nearly 16, and is now on the board.>>Laura: I’m not sure how she avoid any kind of contact. She is able to separate Jaeger and off the glass.>>BJ: And Shelby Reicks, the 5’10” junior, welcomes herself to the ball game here.>>Laura: Here’s a good look. The outlet, looks up the floor, sees which way to go, crossover dribble and steps between two defenders.>>BJ: An 11-point lead for Springville. Largest has been at 12. Trying to get her drive Othat one, nearly turned over. We’ll stay with Turkey Valley. First ever trip here to the state tournament for Turkey Valley. First goal was winning the regional. They have been been snuffed here a couple of times. Feeling like they can control their own tournament run X they’re running into a buzz saw here, doing it again, getting into the scoring for Turkey Valley.>>Laura: Good job. Lob pass over the top of the zone, turns and faces. And lets it slide. ? Menster for three and we have got urn a minute to play here in the first half. Beautiful A the deep three. Being not get it to go down, see if nay hold for one here, with 43 to play in the half.>>Laura: They might, but you hate to stop your momentum. Might as well continue 92 and Wagaman takes it in from the right side. Uses timer with the right hand to put it through. Madi, her first bucket of the ball game for the 5’8″ Sophomore. Lead back to 11. Now Turkey Valley will hold for one here.>>Laura: And they would like to get a good set, get that bucket right at the buzzer. They need a little shot in the arm right here, be it. 92 Springville is shooting 70% from the field. That’s tough to beat. And the Trojans, trying to hang in there. Reicks for three. Missed it, and we have got a half second left to play, before intermission here in the 1A title game. Springville has dominated, had a 13-10 lead after the first quarter. [Horn] And it gets them rolling. Springville, shooting 70% in the first half led by Mikayla Nachazel’s 14 points, going into the locker room, lead together 30-19.>>Laura: Everything that they did was in the low block and in the paint. And that’s what they’re going to continue to do and Turkey Valley can shut them down.>>BJ: Big first half here for Springville. As we did to Paul Yeager who’s standing by.>>Paul Yeager: You’re going to have to take a break after that one. Coach Sanderson. Mikayla Nachazel, she’s on fire. Was that part of the game plan to get her involve like this.>>We always like to give her touches. She runs the floor so well for a big player, gets to that block quickly. We do a good job, getting away from that pressure. She gets good position and she finishes so well with both hands,.>>Paul: Reicks with only two points. Again, another part of your plan to keep her in check?>>Obviously, we want to stay in front of her on the perimeter. Part of it, they haven’t been able to run much, other thanking one bucket was in transition, she just got ahead of us issue but in the half court, we have done a nice job, staying in front and having other players make plays and we have had like to have someone step up and make place for us.>>Paul: Thank you very much, coach we’ll talk to you after the game. Coach Nate Sanderson. They are up 30-19. This has been an incredible first half for Springville and we will take a look at highlights in a little bit but we have a whole bunch more as we are going to feature in this broadcast because the first thing and the most important thing you love to see, ands that the parade of champions and that’s what’s happening right now.>>Announcer: Champions from a previous year.

Another sport, brought together Iowa athletes, families and coaches, all trying to stay out of the gutter in an activity we call bowling, becoming one of the most popular sports administered by the High School athletic union. High School bowlers of course chasing strikes, trophies and even scholarships.>>Bowl suggest one of the sports where anybody can go up and really throw a ball. It’s the fastest growing sport in the U.S. 53 million bowlers bowl about once a week on a regular base. We have kids that are really serious about, that wanted to bowl in college and we have some kids that just enjoy bowling on the weekends that, want to give it a try. And the beautiful thing S you can bowl all your life. Where’s some sports that are more physically demanding. You have to stop at a certain extent.>>I enjoy every aspect television all the time. , I guess my favorite part will be people. It’s nice of course like you have a common thread. It’s great. We all know when to buckle down. And zero in on it.>>honestly, I’ve been told I look really angry. But I’m not angry, like, I’m really focused. And there are some shots where it’s all seriousness, that’s just how I bowl.>>I have kid that is go up that have never touched a bowling ball. And I’ve got kids like Madison, who live, eat, breathe, sleep bowling. Bowling tournaments and will bowl up to 15 games in a we could.>>It started with my great grand mother. And it went down to my grandma and mom and dad both bowl. So they kind of started me really young. And I stuck with it for 13 years. I had an idea going into High School. I was really looking forward to bowling on a team. And getting to the next level. I’m going to bowl. I’m not really a runner. It’s one of those sports where you can do it, as young as you want, and as old as you want. You can do it with family and with friends, and anything. Freshman year, dibasketball. And oh, boy. My 30 seconds of playing time, really made a difference on the team, let me tell you. It’s been a long way since my Sophomore year when I joined. You don’t have to be too athletic to do T. not too strenuous. It was a nice fit for me. And it’s not always easy, but I was good at it a bowling team consists of six bowlers, they bowl two games and after that is done, we call baker games where we take the top five bowlers and each bowler will bowl a frame. And two frames each game and it’s a lot fun. The crowd really gets into it and they’re cheering. Sometimes you can’t even hear the conversation with the person next to you there’s just so much excitement.>>Fall, winter and early spring is usually bowling season and that’s like tournaments every we could. And it’s really fun. We take it very seriously, but in a more friendly nature. We’ll see them give High-fives to other team.>>That’s the fun side television. All seriousness and quiet. We have our own unique cheesier. It’s so inclusive. It’s very, very different. I’ve got a football game or a basketball game. Everybody is just kind of cheering for everybody. And it’s really, really cool to see.>>There’s an internal drive, we want to be the best that we can. We we want to fight and make it to the big tournament. Okay. Come here. I want all of you to maybe move a little bit down to the right. And slow everything down to get to the pocket.>>Bowl suggest much more scientifically designed than a lot of sports. Thousands of different kind of bowling balls and they all do something different. The purpose of the ball, they’re designed to absorb oil and react to the leadership. The lane is synthetic, as opposed to wooden lane, separates down much quicker. There are a lot of different adversities in bowling.>>It’s only you out there. I used to get so nervous. My Sophomore year was so bad. I’d be really shaking because everyone’s like, watch ming bowl. I have to do well. You’re there to watch team, on the basketball court, you’re watching everybody. Everybody is handling the ball. You’re watching everybody. For bowling, you’re like, it’s individualized, I guess.>>I know a lot bowlers that bowl up until they’re 80 or 90. It’s truly a life-long sport.>>I (to go to the University of Iowa, to study nursing and minor in Spanish. In unfortunately, the University of Iowa does not offer a bowling team. They have a bowling club, so I think I’m going to do that.>>It’s been my life forever. It’s just always been a part of me. I’ve made a lot of friends in bowling and it’s taken me fatherer than what I even thought. It’s always going to be a part of me. I put a lot time in it to just let it go. And it’s never going to be, if I have kids, I’m going to pass it down. I’m going to continue it with me and it’s a nice it’s fear to be around. [Cheering] 92 we love tradition here on Iowa Public Television. This is one of them. For some reason, the guys get as much cheers when they do things, whether they’re on the dance team. But these are the guys, sweeping the floor, the 41 line and same old music and we continue traditions and tart new once by showing you first-half highlights and recaps and features and all sorts of great stuff. Need highlights are going to be easy. Turkey Valley, it’s Emily Busta. She hits three 3-pointers in that first half. There’s the second one in the right wing and she was keeping her turnover in the ball game. But really, Mikayla Nachazel inside for Springville. The Sophomore, was super. Inbounds play to her. 10 to the right with the dribble X. Nachazel, again, a hard cut to the basket. For another two. She had 14 first-half points. Springville coached. Shooting sieves%. Hard to compete with anybody shooting sieves%. What is f doing right Paul Yeager Turkey Valley is having a hard time, getting her back on defense. I’d say Springville’s transition game is really making a difference right now.>>BJ: The friends ig, but Nachazel. Do you front her or hope they don’t front her? Paul Yeager if they can get in front of the basketball in the transition. Where you can front her in the post, I think that would be beneficial. They do have some length in there. If you’re playing behind mer, she’s going to get her buckets and probably some and-ones. Turkey valley. Reicks, popped off in the second half. She’s quiet in the first half. Are you worried she’s going to do it again in.>>I think Turkey Valley — excuse me, Springville has done a good job. They’re going to Badger back in the 2-3 I don’t know and say, have you to beat us from the outside. We’ll see what Busta does in the second half, coming up. Three threes. We’ll see what she does.>>Paul: I appreciate you guys so much. I know you don’t want to sit you were here next year. It’s much more fun on the court.>>We’re already making that plan. 92 and one of those, features we do, are talk to the coaches, as they are Mic’d up. And Carletta Nymeyer is one of the head coaches, and coach, you just kind of hear some of that analysis. Nachazel, really is a handful tonight.>>Carletta: Yes, she is. We’re not doing a very good job defending inside on her, you know, we need to step up with that and also our full-court press, we instead to do a better job on that, GENILESing back, just like thes said, they’re transitioning on us pretty well so we need to tighten that up a little bit. And offensively, you know, we need to get out there. We need to not allow them to force us out of our range and force some of those shots. Move the ball around, better and be more aggressive.>>BJ: Thank you attach for your time. Carletta Nymeyer. Head coach of Turkey Valley as she walks across the court we’re going to go back down to the court. BJ Schaben and.>>Laura: — BJ Schaben and Laura Leonard.>>BJ: As we get set for the second half here. We have seen the analysis from the other coaches, taking a look at this game. What really need to happen here for Turkey Valley to get back into it right away?>>Laura: Turkey Valley needs to hit some shots. They need to move on. Offense, get into a good offensive flow. Then if they can do that, they can set their pressure defense and try to get turnovers and that’s really their game. That was one of the keys. They need to be able to play their game, and they did not do that in the first half.>>BJ: To start the second half for Turkey Valley. Nymeyer, S.E.C., and right away. One and done. Nachazel comes up with the ball. And a travel will be called. Too many turnovers in the first half by the Trojans.>>Laura: I think that’s something both of these teams need to take care of the basketball here in second half. You’ve got to value every both when you have it in your front court. You’ve got to make the most of that possession. Turkey Valley, forcation turnover right away.>>BJ: Here’s Menster. Set a school record for steals. 254. Make it 255 and a finish on the other end other largest lead of the game for Springville.>>Laura: They have the active hands as well. Anticipating and getting out in the passing lane and turning it into points. Kuennen on the interior. An offensive Rebound in this game.>>BJ: Yeah, not a lot of offensive boards.>>Laura: When you get them, you’ve got to get the second-chance points and here in the third quarter. Doing a better job of moving without the basketball. Here’s a body look at the quick hands and the career leader in steals for Springville. Going up for the easy two 92 she’s just a Sophomore, too.>>Laura: I’m pretty sure she’s going to set that record, sentence she’s got two more years.>>BJ: Nachazel on the post. Boy, they doubled her, and the Rebound comes down to Turkey Valley.>>Laura: Doubled her and triple her. Kuennen came down to help out.>>BJ: Reicks trying to work with it and a reach-in foul, called against Memphis — called against Megan Wagaman. Turkey Valley, they’re coming from five communities in northeast Iowa. And of course, the school, if you’ve been there, Jackson Johnson, pounding 90B. here in full court. Somebody must have turned out the last light when they came here, trying to will this team to get back into it, they’re down by 13.>>Laura: They have been loud all tournament long. They need to give their team a little spark. They need to get going as well. And get loud in that crowd. 92 Wagaman cannot finish it and the Rebound to Delaney Lensing. Turkey Valley needing a bucket. Reicks will drive and kick to Kuennen. Just off the mark. And the Trojans. Very Cole start here in the late half. Averaging 16.8 points a game in the season, in the tournament, almost 20 a game. But they have really set her down.>>BJ: A walk in the park for the Oriels. And they’ll turn it over. And Nick will come in. The 5’6″ freshman. And Emily Busta comes off the bench, averages in double figures. Comes in with three three-pointers.>>Laura: 14 points in that semifinal game and they need to get her moving, get her open. 92 she set a school record of six 3-pointers, in which she scored 22 points. Turkey Valley being more aggressive. More movement they have had on the offensive end. Here, what they did in the first half. So they are in attack mode. And they just have to find the angles and the gaps in that zone.>>Laura: Really, a factor in this one, for Springville tonight. Inside of five to play here in they are quarter. 13 point lead for Springville. This one, is going to be kicked away. It will stay with the demon black and orange.>>Laura: You’re going to have to watch the lob. A nice lob pass early in the zone. 92 Menster. Great feed from Wagaman.>>Laura: And you look there, and you will at taken goes and they slide somebody in on the baseline 92 she’s got five in the game. This one’s going to be turned over.>>Laura: Good look at the inbound, the backside cutter coming in. Menster. Everybody paying taken to the participate and she snuck in on the baseline side.>>BJ: Springville, we talked about it was here last year, and lost last-second shot by NNuelfonda. And they played last year, so far tone, their game. Now, a good jumper for three by Nymeyer.>>Laura: The bucket they were looking for and now, it looks like we have a foul underneath. Getting position. 92 Delaney Lensing called for the foul she has went physical presence for here Turkey Valley. Semifinals had to sit for a little bit with technical fouls. But composed herself on the bench and came back in.>>Laura: You’ve got to have the physical presence on the inside, and that’s what she provides for Turkey Valley.>>BJ: You mentioned, the paint, now, a foul called here against Turkey Valley. As this is going against Shelby Reicks. Her permanent foul. The third team foul in the late half for Turkey Valley. Tried to enter beautiful A nearly, the steal and now, Nachazel. That’s a high-percentage shot, for Michigan State.>>Laura: Even though it’s a broken play, everything just came right in and Turkey Valley, getting out and playing defense, deflecting the pass, but it just department go their way.>>BJ: Game-high. 16 for Nachazel. Reicks, along the baseline. Busta. That’s a three. Emily beautiful A her fourth three of the game. Menster. Trying to break the pressure and a foul will be called here against Kuennen. That will be her second. Menster hit the deck.>>Laura: Here’s the extra pass, that allows Busta to step and you knock down a much needed three for Turkey Valley. You look at the score and they’re not that far out of it they’re only down 11, and they have an opportunity now. They have got a stop and they have got a little momentum.>>BJ: A rare misfor Nachazel. Drives it. Off the glass Shelby Reicks. Four points now. A.>>Laura: Avoids the defendant, and gets you high off the glass.>>BJ: This one, going to be tide up, possession arrow. Will keep it with Springville.>>Laura: The screen and she is so good, even when she gets a little contact, she maintain that is eye focus on the rim. And gets the shot to go.>>BJ: Wagaman, and tell at a with Springville. Shelby Reicks from the first meeting between the two, cored a season-high 24 points. Tonight, four. So obviously, Springville, their goal was to limit her and they really have.>>Laura: Made some nice adjustments and shut her down and shut everybody else down.>>BJ: The offense, yes, still going. 18 points for this one.>>Laura: Just shows what kind of footwork she has down low in the block.>>BJ: Turkey Valley has not had an answer for her.>>Laura: They have come in with a little bit more height.>>BJ: It’s going to be a two by Nymeyer. Now it’s five. And the lead back to 11.>>BJ: Springville does a great job of beating that initial wave. Turkey Valley wants to put on the full-court pressure. They bring three people up. But the Oriels get right by it.>>BJ: And the fortunatelies, blow the whistle here. See what’s happening here, heading to the bench, we mentioned that rich larsen and Terry McMillen, and they’ve been around for a long time. Rich larsen, named the national official of the year, he got that a few years ago. And for all of you sitting at home, who call fouls or go to games and chime in a little bit, there are now two openings for High School basketball here in the state of Iowa. Buckle up and get it done. With the drive and finish. Now, with 14, to lead Turkey Valley. It’s a 7 point game and here come the Trojans. Menster for three. Look at this. Turkey Valley looks to run. Reicks on the drive. The elbow was off. Break out. Menster from Wagaman. Inside of a minute to play, here in the third quarter. Beautiful A doing a great job of getting back in defense.>>BJ: And Wagaman. Fouled hard on the play. And Nymeyer will pick up her second. No late fouls for Turkey Valley. Wagaman in the paint. Tried to dish it low, and how about that. Wagaman ends up with it. She now has four points. Springville need lad bucket. Nine-point game here with 35 seconds to play here in the third quarter.>>Laura: Turkey Valley doing a good job of getting themselves back into it. Giving themselves an opportunity with the fourth quarter coming up.>>BJ: And the put-back by Nymeyer. Not there but she is fouled and will go to the line to shoot some free-throws. She’s the top free-throw shooter on the team, 81%.>>Laura: I’m sure they work on that in the driveway, and the gym and talk about repetition, and what you need to do to knock down not shots and how important they are at this stage of the game.>>BJ: Sadie says, I really like having her around on the team. I’ve her as a coach since back in 7th grade. Stephanie Martin now in the ball game. Menster will also sit for Springville. And it’s going to be — Mi Cole Kane. And this know works nearly turned over. And Springville, has unraveled here over last couple of minutes.>>Laura: I think they’re just picking up the pressure, and they’re going to get Emily Busta back in the ball game and get her set up for a three. That would really give them a huge boost. The defensive pressure they have to make. Now, they’re starting to heat it up and cause turnovers.>>Laura: Springville has led by as many as 13-3. And up! [Cheers and applause]. We have got ourselves a ball game, heading into the time eight minutes. Turkey Valley has worked hard to get back into this. It’s a 4 point game with eight minutes to play. Let’s go to the Turkey Valley bench and listen to Carletta Nymeyer. [Cheering]>>All right. Make sure you set the screen, and you guys are set. Don’t vacate out. Stay in the area, okay. Hey, ladies, we have got to Rebound. Limit them on one side. Let’s make sure we don’t allow them. Make sure you’re getting ball side. Stay with it.>>BJ: Turkey Valley down by 13, they have widdled the lead down to four as we go to the time minutes of play. Spring boarded by Mikayla Nachazel. 18 points so far in this one.>>Laura: They went to her early, right at the beginning of the ball game. They set the tempo by getting her in the low block, and look how well she moves without the basketball. She gives it up, and great footwork in the post and they really went to her a lot in that first half. To build that lead, but now, all of a sudden, Turkey Valley, coming back. Springville is going to try to reestablish along the inside.>>Laura: And if you’re Springville, they played in the championship game last year, law A and they did have a lead. Not 13 points. At one point, how do you avoid it.>>Laura: You have to push it back F. you start think going last year’s game, you’ve got to put it back in the back of your mind. You’ve got to play right now, these final eight minutes, play as hard as can you. You don’t want to have the same kind of outcome as a year ago. You’ve got a lead X protect it and continue to play the way you play.>>BJ: Busta for thee. That’s off that park. Wagaman picks up the pass. Nachazel, man-to-man defense here for Turkey valley.>>Laura: Change together up a little bit and moveog defense.>>BJ: Menster from 15. Nymeyer with the board. Turkey Valley 26-0 coming into the game. Largest deficit in the state tournament. Early on in a game. Down by 13 and they have got it down to four. Long three. And the put-back is better for cawl — for Schaufenbuel.>>Laura: Press, the weak side board. Above her head, was able to convert to second-chance points.>>BJ: 11 points in the quarter finals. Too close to the hoop and here come the Trojans. It’s a two point game.>>Laura: They need to get back into their rhythm and try to work it down into the low block. Nymeyer wanted that lead and Springville keeping them. Really regain the moment. It’s going to be called for the foul and back court. That will be her second. Trying to get that have quick feel you can see how quick and 80. She might have picked the pocket. But official called her for the foul. Wagaman, and that is off the knee of Jaeger and Turkey Valley will get it back to the turnover. Another opportunity to tie it or take the lead.>>LAURA: And you can see on her face, thought she should have tapped that ball. They ran a nice set play, and you’ve got to shake that off. 52% on the year. But here’s at the state tournament, has been a different free-throw shooter. Shooting better than 60% here at Wells Fargo Arena. Bigger backdrop, I guess. Nails the first one, now, with an opportunity to tie it. Tide ball game at 40. And a beautiful one by Reicks.>>Laura: I think you’re going to need a time-out and that’s exactly what what’s what’s going to happen.>>BJ: Reicks has really come on, now in double figures with 10. Participation, and Reicks, getting into that passing lane, and giving Turkey Valley the lead.>>BJ: Let’s go to the springville bench.>>Get up the floor. Two players over here. At a open in the back. Be patient. On the board, we misa hot and miss that hebe. Stay in front. What was your question,? Right here. You show. The high post. You’ve got to roll out and we rotate. The high post. Only a senior could grab the marker, and go to the board. That’s Megan Wagaman and they have got four Sophomores in their Lineup. I’ll tell you, the interesting thing about this Springville team, is not only their character on the court, but it goes off the court, too. They are pursuing this victory with honor award for their community involvement. Prior to coming here to the state tournament, the Oriels team raised more than $6,000 to fight hunger — they prepared 24,000 males in about four hours and thinking of who’s hungry, I think it’s Turkey Valley right now W a two point lead. L second lead of the game.>>Laura: Now, they’re in their comfort zone. Their defense is doing for them what they have done all season long and now, they’re feeding off of that.>>BJ: They have got Kuennen away from the basket and they have Schaufenbuel playing host. So they’re change together up a little bit.>>BJ: Busta! [Cheers and applause]. That’s her fifth three of the game! Turkey Valley with their largest lead of five. Cannot get the finish and the Rebound to Busta.>>Laura: You’ve got bodies flying all over the place, but a good interior pass, now, all of a sudden, Springville has gotten cold from the floor.>>BJ: And a steal by Nachazel. She’ll lob it ahead tomentose. Turns the basket. The drive. Big bucket there for Springville. Turkey Valley has been on a huge run.>>Laura: That’s the one you need if you’re Springville. You finally now breathe a sigh of relief. You got that bucket.>>BJ: The turnover numbers, just about even. Turkey Valley has not turn today over very much here in the second half. In fact, only four times compared to the sixth for Springville. And a time-out. Is going to be taken here. 30 second time-out to Turkey Valley. A lot of active hands here in this one, and Springville hoping for more of this.>>Laura: Good anticipation by Nachazel and gets it out to Menster. Steps in between two defenders. Able to get a much-needed basket for Springville. [Horn]>>BJ: Let’s go to the Turkey Valley huddle.>>Go to the mid line and then you’re back again.>>Laura: Different excitement in the coach’s voice, different excitement by the players and they know that they’re in this ball game. They’ve been able to get back into the lead something they haven’t seen since the gipping of the ball game. And they have just urn four minutes to win their first state title.>>BJ: They’re a different team when they have the advantage here, on the score boards. Notad rattled, played with some composure. Down by as many as 13. Now has the lead. Turnover. Menster with the tale and she’s fouled on the play. By Nymeyer and enters foul trouble. And that’s going to put the orals in at the other end. Single bonus. For Springville.>>Laura: I was thinking if Turkey Valley had that possession, they can just work it a little bit. Work a little crack X they tried to spread the meat over inside and Springville comes up with a big steal. Now 11 points. One point game. Last year, came down for a game-winning shot. Setting themselves up for a fantastic finish here, at Wells Fargo Arena. And what a way to get started here for the girls state basketball championship. And a Rebound to Megan Wagaman. Ahead to Menster. Who will slow it down with three to play.>>Laura: They were looking for the back court. A give and go, but defended very nicely.>>BJ: Wagaman underneath. Reicks will get her third and now, Megan Wagaman, the 5’9″ senior, with an opportunity. To tie it up and take the lead,el she’ll be there to take the two. 58% free-throw shooter on the year. And we’re tied at 45 and of course, Megan Wagaman, at the conclusion here of the state tournament, has a big decision as to where she’s going to go to college to play volleyball. Narrowed down to two.>>Laura: Tough decision. Tough decision. Both very good programs.>>BJ: And we’re tied at 45. Right now, I know what’s on her mind is state championship. Turkey Valley trying toker their first-ever state title. Springville won a state championship back in 2008. Here’s the three. Nymeyer. And the Rebound to Nachazel.>>Laura: What a great job the skip-pass to get the defense moving and get them out of position and just came up short on that shot and one and done going the other way, now, the advantage for the Oriels.>>BJ: L you just look at T. nearing the work minute mark playing the game. Can you feel the pressure mounting for both. Nachazel gives the Oriels a lead again, on a 7-0 run.>>Laura: Two players that we featured in the beginning of the ball game. Both battling for the loose ball and infrastructure wins that battle.>>BJ: 1:50 to play. Got it inside. Busta picked up the loose ball. Trying to get to Nymeyer, and this one’s going to be knocked out. And it’ll at a with Turkey Valley with 1:38 to play.>>Laura: Here’s a good look at it. The bounce-pass inside gets deflected. Nachazel, wins that battle on the inside.>>BJ: Reicks in the participate and a foul on the floor, that’s going to be the fourth team foul on Springville.>>Laura: Turkey Valley should attack a little bit more here. Try to get into that bonus situation. They had Busta all alone after she inbammedded down in the low block. Nobody there, defensively and they just missed her. Down by Nymeyer, knocked out, but it’ll stay with Turkey Valley. Wagaman last touch it for Springville.>>Laura: What a great hustle by both players. Trying to grab that loose ball. And Nymeyer, battling to keep that possession.>>BJ: Busta for three, good! [Cheers and applause].>>Laura: She’s been doing it all game long, finding the opening. You give her a little bit, she’s going to knock them down.>>BJ: Tie ace school record, six threes. Early there season, now, the turnover by Springville. Turkey Valley with a one-point lead.>>Laura: A little adrenaline going. Wagaman just that ball, out of the league. And Springville going to call a time-out. They need a tough strategy here. Busta now with a new career-high. 23.>>Laura: Nobody paying attention on defense. Directing traffic. Was right there, big shot for Turkey Valley.>>BJ: Let’s go to the Springville bench.>>BJ: Stay.>>Be real aggressive going after the ball. Let’s G team, one, two, three. Team.>>BJ: Nachazel leads with 20. Beautiful A leading off the bench Turkey Valley with three. One point game, 48-47. We have got 53 seconds to play.>>Laura: Who’s your go-to players down the stretch?>>BJ: I think right now, you have to get some pressure and get it the into the front court. They knee to take care of the basketball and Kuennen is one they’d want to go to. Boost is another one you want to get the ball in her hands.>>BJ: Special has more to give. Let’s go to the Trojan bench here.>>You guys can be on top of your zone, setting a screen and make a move for it. Before you go down into your spots. Run traces, good screen. You’re going to step to every pass, too. Step to every pass. All right. Here we go. Ladies.>>Laura: How many time-outs do we have, and that’s exactly, it’s a smart thing to add and you’ve got to step to every pass. What duties between those two coaches and coach Nymeyer said, I’m more of a fundamental. Fundamental. Get to the basketball. Step to every pass, and coach is more of the execution guy, the X’s and O’s guy. Execution and fundamentals.>>BJ: And a foul, quickly, here on Springville. Again, we mentioned two to give before they can put the Trojans at line. Nachazel will pick up the foul. That’s her first. And this one, tracked down by Kuennen and a quick foul by Wagaman. Picks up her second.>>Laura: One more to give, before you’re able to put them on the line. For a team, Turkey Valley shoots 58%. And that is one of the series, putting them at the line. The semifinals, they had a ton of free-throws. And now, might be forced into that direction again. When we’re fouled by Springville. Put them there for the single bonus. Let’s go to the bench of the Oriels.>>If you’re if trouble, we can call a time-out. Otherwise, you can get the ball back. And find a good spot. You don’t want to foul 12. So really, we’d like to get 35 or 34 guard guarding one of those players. Before they have used the three to get back to this and take back the lead.>>Laura: They sure have, and Busta, coming off the bench, has been their primary 3-point shooter. She’s done this, not just one area of the floor accident but open accident all around the arc.>>BJ: Tied a school record she set herself again, six three-pointers in the game. She’s done that. Here tonight again. 48-47. Turkey Valley with a lean on the ball. They break it out to Busta who’s going to be fouled and we’ll go to the line. Menster got the foul there. And that should be the seventh team foul to put her at the line. Yes, it is. Great hustle to knock it away, and get the foul and stop the clock.>>BJ: Beautiful A57% free-throw shooter. It’s off. 37 seconds to play. Each team in the bonus. And time-out, going to be taken by Springville. They’ll have two remaining. 31 seconds to play. The 1A title game again. Looks like it’s coming down to a last-second shot.>>Get coming in the ball. WITH THE NIGHT OF SALVATION we get T we want to run a switch, so we’re going to switch, come off the drive right here, and get a hit there and keep going and get in the post. Go after the ball right here if we don’t get the wildcat on the dribble up, tie down and post hard. Everywhere crosses the board on any side. Everybody goes, we go up the court. If they get a Rebound, we have got to get the ball.>>BJ: 48-47. Turkey Valley with the lead on Springville, and yes, Chuck Krasley, fresh off a trip back from D.C. the keeping track of everything going on. This one, why not. Fantastic finish, coming up here in the 1A championship game. Unity Christian and Western Christian coming up. Here on Iowa Public Television Wagaman, getting past, and they try to go to Nachazel. And it was deflected away. Menster caught up. 15 to go in the game. Pass deflected away. Menster from the Corner, now, down to 10 to play. Clock undeliverable winding down. Wagaman and the right wing, and the baseline, the jumper, it’s off! Rebound and a shot will be on the floor. No basket. On the floor. Foul on the play, Melissa Deeney, the 5’7 Sophomore will to the line, with an opportunity for the lead. Ninth team foul on Turkey Valley.>>Laura: A great weak side by Jaeger to get to the glass and call the contact.>>BJ: Picks up her fourth. Jaeger’s fro. We’re tide at 48. Now, the big one, with three .2 seconds to go. Wow.>>Laura: I know my heart’s pumping right now. It’s exciting once again in 1A. 3.2 to play. They ran that play to perfection, to get set up for that shot.>>Come across. One, two. Second dribble. You got T. if you can get a screen in there, got T. Turkey Valley, and every practice with about four second on the clock, and every practice that way, tyring on design plays the players on the floor, you’ve got Nymeyer, along with Reicks, Kuennen and also, out there is Schaufenbuel and Busta. So they ran this to end practice, a lot of times, they’re used to it. Springville will try and defend, three points, two to play, each team in the bonus. Oriels, black and over with a one point lead, they’re going to play it back. Now you’ve got to run it. Turkey Valley has trouble get together into Kuennen. The half court. And Springville’s going to do it! Fifth win for Springville, as they win their second championship for their school. Winning group-48, they gave up a three-point point lead, fell down by as many as five here in the last quarter, but they rallied and win it 49-48. Job well-done by the Springville Oriels.>>Laura: A great job, with standing the comeback. They have a great start to the ball game. Turkey Valley, fought their way back in. Springville comes up big in the last few seconds with a couple of free-throws.>>BJ: They have got to print it on t-shirts.
