As part of a 7-game Saturday event, the Pirates win 64-37 after getting off to a 20-2 start. CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – There has been some talk about which school if any, might join the River Valley Conference as the 16th member.
There are now 15, which makes it hard to divide up the work and make plans. It seems like sixteen is a nice, even number. So, just for fun, let’s throw out some possible additions. Let’s start with Alburnett. It’s a school that seems to be getting more students for a number of reasons. It is about the same size as most of the schools in the RVC and in the area where the league plays.

And, most importantly, it has good sports, like boys’ basketball. The Pirates beat Cascade 64-37 on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Advisors Shootout at Coe College. The first quarter was almost perfect for the Pirates.
This is the second good River Valley Conference team that Alburnett has beaten by a big margin this season. The first one was in Dyersville.
“We all just really wanted it,” said Jordan Caton, a junior guard at Alburnett. “We knew that Cascade was a good team on both offense and defense. What we had to do was clear to us. “Like we always do, get off to a good start and shoot well.”
There are two kinds of shooting: good and hot. Alburnett, which was ranked seventh in Class 2A with a record of 11-1, made its first six shots and led 20-2 with 3:29 left in the first quarter.
All five Pirates starters had points in the team’s 12-0 start. Cascade (9-4) is known for its 2-3 zone defense, which makes it hard as hell for other teams to get shots off. Not true in this case. Alburnett moved the ball well and made the shots that were open to him.
Braydon Osborn of Alburnett said, “A lot of us were making a lot of shots.” “I think we just kept shooting it and having fun out there because we knew we could. It was great that we were making so many good shots.
“I’m just looking for the open area. Just take what they give you and chill out.” Alburnett, which has been a member of the Tri-Rivers Conference for a long time, got 15 points from both Caton and Osborn. Adam Neighbor put in 12, and Mason Neighbor put in 10.
Even though the Pirates beat Ed-Co on Friday night, they didn’t think they played all that well. Getting back to work just a few hours later was a big help.
“No, we did not play defense very well. Even when we were trying to score, we didn’t make many shots,” Osborn said. “It felt good to just flush it down the toilet and move on to this game.”

Caton said, “We knew we couldn’t play that way again against a team like this.” Cascade was led by Cole McDermott’s 13 points. Before coming here, the Cougars had won five games in a row.
This event, which takes place every year, had seven games on Saturday. First, No. 6 Class 1A Dunkerton beat Central City 57-40. Then, No. 1A Durant beat Mediapolis 58-45 in the morning.
Another ranked 1A team, No. 10 Bellevue Marquette, beat Don Bosco by a score of 62-31. This was a good game for them. Linn-Mar came from behind to beat Cedar Rapids Prairie, 57-54, in the final minutes of a game between two Mississippi Valley Conference teams that didn’t count in the MVC standings.
