PELLA -- One of the best pure scorers the state has ever seen made a major impact on Friday night, but it was his passing that won his Norwalk Warriors a key Little Hawkeye Conference game, as Bowen Born and top-ranked Norwalk escaped Pella with a 66-65 win.

The 2,000 point scorer came into this one averaging over 40 points a game, but all things considered, the Dutch did a pretty strong job on him in this game, "holding" him to 29 points on 10-22 shooting. But it was the final two of his seven assists that helped his Warriors ice this game away.

With 1:59 remaining, Pella's Treyton Sturgeon put back a missed 3 to cut the Norwalk lead down to 60-59. Born brought the ball down court, drove to the rim and found Joe Brown for a layup. 62-59 Norwalk. The Dutch turned it over on the ensuing possession, and Born did the same thing, finding Brown for another bucket with 30 seconds left, 64-59 Warriors. Logan Shetterly came down and drilled a 3 to cut the lead back to 2 with 24.3 left. Born
