FAYETTE - The Jesup J-Hawks got revenge for last year's first-round loss at the Class 1A state tournament, beating the second-ranked Gladbrook-Reinbeck boys' basketball team 65-61 on Saturday at Upper Iowa University.

Ethan Wyant shot 12-for-17 from the field en route to a team-leading 27 points for Jesup (11-1), which won its eighth-straight. Hans Riensche added 12 points off the bench, Joey Youngblut got 11 points and six rebounds, and Tyler Lienau added eight points and eight assists for the J-Hawks.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck senior Joe Smoldt scorched the nets for a career-high 42 points on 16-of-27 shooting with four 3-pointers, adding six rebounds and four assists in the Rebels' first loss since last year's state tournament.

Caden Kickbush chipped in with seven points and Tyler Pierce finished with six points and five boards for the Rebels, who host 2A No. 6 South Hamilton on Tuesday night.
