DES MOINES — Grand View Christian rallied from a 16-point halftime deficit to beat Lake Mills in double overtime 71-66 in the Class 1A semifinal round of the boys state basketball tournament in Des Moines. After trailing 32-16 at intermission, Grand View Christian outscored Lake Mills 20-3 in the third quarter to lead by one, with the teams trading the lead back and forth through the fourth quarter and both overtimes. Lake Mills coach Kyle Menke says it had to have been one of the best contests in state tournament history.
Lake Mills ends their season with a record of 25-2. Grand View Christian improves to 27-0 and will face the second seed North Linn in Friday’s Class 1A championship game. North Linn beat St. Mary’s of Remsen 56-46 in Wednesday’s other 1A semifinal.
