Albia's Tanner Kellogg ripped Clark County apart, scoring 33 points during regulation Thursday at the Putnam County Tournament. The Indians shut out the Blue Demons junior in overtime and won 69-65.
Kellogg tied the game at 60 at the end of the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer.
Chase Bevans and Rye Hunziker combined for all nine of Clark County's overtime points.
"He was really unconscious all night," Indians coach Adam Rung said of Kellogg. "I don't know that we did anything different. We played our best guys against him on defense, and I think fatigue set in. They also got whistled for a technical, so I think frustration set in."
Albia led 32-30 at halftime. Clark County (3-0) grabbed the lead at the end of the third quarter on a 3-pointer by Dylan Harper. Bevans (19 points) and Luke Ross (10) both scored in double figures for the Indians.
