Germantown boys basketball

In a physical game, Warhawks' guard LaMonte Bearden hit 12-of-12 free throws as he and Jon Averkamp had 18 points apiece in a 71-46 North Shore Conference decision over Port Washington on Friday.

With the win, the top-ranked Warhawks improved to 6-0 in North Shore play and 8-0 overall. Entering Saturday night's nonconference game with state-ranked Division 2 power East Troy (see for details), Germantown had a 36-game winning streak.

The Warhawks now make another appearance in the eighth annual Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout at Concordia University in Mequon. They take on unbeaten Arrowhead at 8:30 p.m. Thursday and then challenge Milwaukee Riverside at 9 p.m. Friday.

Against host Port, the Warhawks began slowly, pulling ahead by a 16-11 count at the quarter before gaining some breathing room with a 21-9 in the second period.

As noted, the game was physical as Germantown hit 32-of-44 free throws in the contest as opposed to just seven of 10 for the Pirates. Bearden and Averkamp led the way. Averkamp had seven field goals and hit four-of-six free throws en route to his season high.

Luke Fischer also had 13 for Germantown.
