DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Third-seeded Boyden-Hull won the Class 1A state title Friday night, stunning previously undefeated and top-seeded Danville 63-45. Bryce Moss scored a game-high 17 points for the Comets (26-2), who handed Danville its second straight loss in the state championship game. Boyden-Hull jumped ahead by 10, 49-39, when Moss bullied his way to the basket with 5:04 left. Danville turned it over, and Moss scored again underneath and pumped his fists in celebration. Boyden-Hull shot 62.5 percent from the field in the second half and outscored Danville 20-6 in the fourth quarter. Steven Soukup had 15 points for Danville, which had won its first two games in Des Moines by an average of nearly 23 points.
