NEGAUNEE - Negaunee raced to a 21-10 first quarter lead Tuesday en route to a 67-51 Mid-Peninsula Conference boys basketball win over Iron Mountain.

The M-PC champion Miners (19-1, 12-0) put four players in double figures, led by Tyler Jandron with 17 points. Eric Lori (15), Tanner Uren (13) and Brock Weaver (13) also hit double digits.

"It was a game of runs, but our balance (in scoring) was pretty good," Negaunee head coach Mike O'Donnell said. "(IM) focused on Jandron, which opened it up for others.

"Our defense won it for us (though). We made stops when we needed to."

Luke Zambon (24) and Taylor Huotari (20) combined for 44 points for the Mountaineers (14-6, 9-3).

Iron Mountain starts Class C district play Monday, meeting West Iron County at 5:30 p.m. at Norway.
