Before the snow rolled in and caused cancellations and rescheduling throughout the Omaha Metro Conference Friday, Omaha North and Omaha South were able to add another chapter to their long-running rivalry Thursday (1/14/21) evening. 

The visiting Packers cashed in on 30 points off of Omaha North’s 18 turnovers en route to a convincing 68-45 road victory.

Players of Note:

Rickey Loftin  PG  Freshman  5’10  Omaha South High School

Loftin (#1 pictured) impressed from the jump.  One of only a handful of freshmen starting in the metro, the 5’10 guard separated himself from all others this evening with his fearless play at such a young age. Loftin led all scorers with a game-high 19 points, despite missing much of the third quarter with foul trouble. Loftin scored at all three levels; getting to the foul line by drawing contact on drives (5/7 FT) as well as shooting 4/5 from behind the three-point arc. Loftin will be a fun guard to follow as he develops throughout the remainder of his prep career for the Packers.
