Iowa commit Joe Wieskamp ’18 and the Muscatine Muskies beat City High last night 70-46 with Iowa Head Coach Fran McCaffery in attendance.

By halftime, Wieskamp had scored 20 points, only two fewer than the Little Hawks scored the entire half. Leading the Little Hawks was freshman Keshawn Christian who scored 15 points. Ry Threlkeld-Wiegand ’19 was City’s second leading scorer, adding 11 points. This loss came right after the Little Hawks lost two players including Naeem Smith ’17, who was City’s second leading scorer with 10.0 points per game last season. Gabe Nkumu ’17 also quit the team earlier this week. Both said that they want to focus more on getting ready to play football at the collegiate level and that it didn’t have to do with the Little Hawks’ 27-62 loss earlier in the week to Davenport North.

“I really lost the passion for the game.” Smith said. “It wasn’t just because we got blown out our first game. It had everything to do with myself, I’m not gonna force myself to do something I don’t wanna do, and somebody else can definitely step up and take that role.”

The Little Hawks will look to move on when they play at Pleasant Valley on Tuesday.
