DES MOINES — Grand View Christian put an end to North Linn’s perfect season and repeated as the Class 1A boys’ basketball state champion Friday at Wells Fargo Arena. With star center Issa Samake leading the way, the Thunder slipped past the Lynx 49-46 when a 3-point shot as time expired missed its mark, as did all but two of North Linn’s 18 attempts from 3-point range for the game.

North Linn (28-1) carried a 91.5 scoring average into the title matchup, but Grand View Christian slowed the pace and made it difficult for the Lynx to get their running game going.

Samake finished with 12 points, 18 rebounds and four blocked shots for Grand View Christian (25-1) while Grant DeMeulenaere led the Thunder with 21 points.

Jake Hilmer paced the Lynx with 17 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals, but North Linn shot just 32 percent for the game.
