Ironwood Ridge standout Cole Gerken scored 11 points in the opening frame of the 66-49 win over Flowing Wells Monday night and finished with a game-high 19.
Gerken committed to play for Pima Community College on Saturday and the senior standout is sitting at 980 career points.
“Pima offered me in my junior year but I waited to see all the other offers,” Gerken explained. “Pima was the best for my family, I get to play on scholarship and everyone can come and see me play.”
