Second-ranked Jackson’s bid for its first Class 4A state boys’ basketball title is still alive. And so is its perfect record after a 68-41 victory over Arlington.

The Timber Wolves wasted little time in deflating WesCo rival Arlington’s confidence in this one, jumping out to a 44-21 lead and coasting to the team’s third win this season over the Eagles (22-4).

Jackson (26-0) shot an impressive 9 of 18 from the 3-point line in the game.

Jason Todd led the Timber Wolves with 20 points and nine rebounds. Teammate Dan Kingma finished with 19 points, shooting 5 of 9 from beyond the arc.

“I’m excited,” Todd said about facing Curtis. “We watched them a little bit. They’re a great team. If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. And that’s something we really want to do, and I think we’re all really looking forward to it.”
