LINCOLN – Sophomore guard Kaden Glynn had a game-high 25 points and Johnson-Brock high school completed a football-basketball state championship sweep Saturday with a 67-54 victory over No. 3 Osmond in the Class D2 state title game at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.

It was the school’s third championship and the first since they won back-to-back titles in 1997 and 1998. They won the 2018 Class D2 state football championship in November with a 56-26 victory over Mullen.

Glynn shot 9-18 from the floor, including 5-8 from the 3-point line. He also grabbed 5 rebounds, dished out 3 assists and finished with 3 steals. Johnson-Brock had a field goal percentage of 48% and shot 50% from beyond the arc.

Junior guard Ty Hahn added 15 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists. Senior forward Dylan Rowe scored 8 points and gathered 10 rebounds.

With the score tied at 35 at halftime, the Eagles (24-4) outscored the Tigers (27-2) 32-19 in the second half.

Johnson-Brock scored 21 points off 11 Osmond turnovers.

Junior forward Keaton Timmerman had 19 points and 6 rebounds to lead the Tigers, who earned their second runner-up finish in school history. They also finished second in 1994. Junior forward Justus Maertins added 14 points and 4 rebounds. Senior center Nicholas Reikofski scored 10 points off the bench and snagged 6 rebounds.

The Eagles’ title was the second of the day for Nemaha County. Auburn won the Class C1 state championship earlier in the day with a 30-29 victory over North Bend Central.
