Class 2A State Basketball Tournament
Central Lyon 66, Panorama 30
Central Lyon’s Addison Klosterbuer not only brings size and length to the guard court. She can shoot it, too.
Klosterbuer tied a state-tournament record with eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points as the second-second Lions rolled past Panorama 66-30 in a Class 2A quarterfinal to open Day 3 of the 2023 tourney.
The 5-foot-11 senior, who’ll play collegiately at South Dakota, went 8-for-12 from deep and 11-for-15 overall, tying the 3-point record set by Elle Ruffridge against Center Point-Urbana in 2017. The eight treys is a new 2A record.
Ruffridge saw every one of Klosterbuer’s shots go in because she was the color analyst on the live stream of the game.
Desta Hoogendoorn, a 6-foot junior, added 16 points and nine rebounds for Central Lyon, which simply had too much size for the seventh-seeded Panthers. The unbeaten Lions piled up a 41-18 rebounding edge and forced the Panorama players into numerous difficult shots.
Tyme Boettcher led Panorama with nine points and Jaidyn Sellers, a state sprint champion in track, scored eight points and grabbed six rebounds.
Most of Klosterbuer’s 3s came from well behind the arc. She made her first one less than 2 minutes into the game and shot with confidence the rest of the way.
The Lions steadily built a 34-12 halftime lead with Hoogendorn scoring inside and Klosterbuer connecting from the perimeter. The two then combined for the first 17 points of the second half to hike the lead to 51-12 and set a running clock into motion.
Klosterbuer hit a pull-up jumper, a step-back 3 and a 3 from deep in the left corner during that run. She started the fourth quarter with three more baskets from distance, the last one so far out it looked as if she was launching one as a heat check. She left the game on the next dead ball.
Central, the 2013 Class 1A champion and the 2A runner-up last year, improved to 23-0 and will try to take the next step toward another title in a semifinal game at 11:45 a.m. Friday. Panorama, a semifinalist last year, finishes 22-3.
