And then there was one.

The Beloit Turner High boys basketball team picked up its most impressive win of what’s so far been an uneven season, defeating Evansville 64-55 on Friday to knock out one of the Rock Valley Conference’s two unbeaten teams.

Kenny Draeving scored 13 of his team-high 15 points in the first half, helping Turner (2-2, 2-1 RVC) to a 34-26 halftime lead. Ty’Shone Lomax had 14 points, while Jordan Majeed added 13.

The Trojans have won two straight games since opening the season with losses to Milwaukee Bradley Tech and Edgerton. Turner made nine 3-pointers Friday, led by Lomax, who hit three.

Seth Maag scored 19 points to pace the Blue Devils (3-2, 2-1 RVC), who had their three-game winning streak end.

Evansville’s loss leaves East Troy as the Rock Valley’s last unbeaten.
