(Elk Horn) Drew Peppers scored 18 and Jarred Hansen pitched in with 16 as the Exira-EHK Spartan boys basketball team picked up their 2nd win of the year. The Spartans led nearly wire to wire in their 56-40 win.
Exira-EHK used a strong defensive showing to help CAM to just 8 points in each of the first two quarters to take a 26-16 halftime lead. The game wouldn't get much closer after that. CAM cut the deficit to single digits on a few occasions in the second half, but Exira-EHK ballooned the lead up to 20 points in the fourth quarter and were able to get all the reserves into the game.
In the loss or CAM the Cougars got nine points each from Michael Holste and Logan Dinkla. They head into the holiday break at 2-6.
