Lincoln- While most of the chatter leading into the state tournament was diverted from games to crowds following the NSAA’s decision to limit admittance to the 2020 state tournament all first-round games went off as scheduled and without a hitch on Thursday to get the tournament rolling. There was plenty of talent on display across all 6 classes and 4 different tournament sites. Here are some stand out performances from the first day of action across all classes. 

2022 Cale JacobsenCaleJacobsen6'3" | CGAshland-Greenwood | 2022StateNE (Ashland Greenwood)- 32 points (11-22 FG), 10-13 FT, 12 rebounds. 

The 6’3 sophomore guard led Ashland Greenwood in a near-upset of Auburn in the Class C2 quarterfinals Thursday afternoon at the Devaney Center. He scored 30 of the Bluejays final 37 points as they fell to Auburn 54-48. Jacobsen is certainly one of the top 2022 prospects in the state due to his natural scoring ability. He is definitely not built like most high school sophomores either. 

2021 Brad BennettBradBennett6'1" | CGElkhorn Mount Michael | 2021StateNE (Mount Michael Benedictine)- 23 points 6-8 3 PT, 5-6 FT

For the second time in less than two weeks, Bennett shot the lights out against the Wahoo Warriors.
