CLEAR LAKE — Carson Toebe’s put-back of a missed shot at the buzzer kept Clear Lake’s perfect season in tact as the 2nd-ranked Lions came back from seven points down late in the fourth quarter to beat Webster City 52-51 in North Central Conference boys basketball last night, as you heard on AM-1490/96.7-FM KRIB.

Toebe had 12 while Drew Enke led Clear Lake with 20 points. Clear Lake is 14-0 overall and 9-0 in the conference and will host Crestwood on Thursday night.

The Cyclones fall to 4-3 in the Big 12.
Iowa State coach Steve Prohm.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries, who feels his team has regrouped after losing senior guard Nick Norton to a knee injury.
UNI is also 3-3 and returns to action Wednesday at Southern Illinois.
