West boys basketball
Senior Jordan McKeon stepped up to spark New Berlin West to a season-high in points scored on Feb. 14, rolling past Shorewood, 75-42, at home.
West coach Jeff Lewiston continues to look for scoring help for senior Dan Sidesky, who finished with a game-high 23 points, and McKeon, a 5-foot-10-inch guard averaging 6.8 points per game, could be another answer.
"I just let it go and it was going in," McKeon said afterward. "I have some nights where I'm hitting everything and some nights where I couldn't hit anything. Tonight was one of those good nights."
Lewiston was happy with McKeon's performance.
"We've been telling Jordan he needs to take more shots," he said. "He's been getting some good looks, but he has been passing up some good looks too. Someone has to score more points; we can't rely on Danny to score all the points.
"Jordan did a lot of nice things tonight. He shot the ball well and when he made the shots his confidence kept growing."
The Vikings went on a 16-1 run in the third quarter to blow the game open and take a 44-24 lead and McKeon had eight points on two 3-pointers and a steal, which led to a fastbreak basket. He finished with 11 of his team's 24 points in the third period.
Sidesky and Darin Sowinski (10 points) picked up the pace in the fourth quarter, each scoring six points to keep the pressure on.
Matt Rink, Kevin Marx and sophomore Andrew Knoll each had six points and played a big part in the win.
