Iowa City West accomplished that Friday against Linn-Mar, rushing to a 71-51 victory in a Class 4-A semifinal. Star guard Marcus Paige, bound for North Carolina, said he’d never witnessed such a blitz. “That’s the only time I ever remember playing in a game like that,” he said after scoring a team-high 24 points.
