CLEARVIEW -- 
Lutheran West fell to Clearview for the second time this year and the seventh time in a row. Last night, it was Clearview’s hot 3 point shooting that proved too much for the Longhorns. Clearview hit nine three-pointers in total in the game, and five alone in a span of four minutes in the decisive first quarter. 
Last Tuesday, LW lost 71 to 62. 
Things went from good to bad quickly for LW. Down 6-1, the Clippers went on a 21-3 run to end the quarter and quickly distance themselves from the Longhorns.  Eight baskets were made by Clearview in the run with five of them from behind the three-point line. Clearview sophomore guard Eric Burkey hit three three-pointers alone. At the half, LW was down ten with the score 38-28. Clearview shot a blazing 55% in the first half.
In the second half, LW cut the game to 62-55 with 5:01 to go, but LW could get no closer. At the end of the game, the three-point difference was extreme. Twenty-seven of Clearview’s 71 points came from threes, whereas the Longhorns had six points coming from threes. 
At the end of the game, Clearview recorded a total 46% shooting percentage, which Coach Alan Januzzi described when he said “They came out shooting lights out. That makes it really tough to win on the road.” On a more positive note, the Longhorns matched the Clippers almost identically in overall shooting percentage, with 45%. Junior center Dan Hillenbrand tried to carry the Longhorns on his back, recording a season high 29 points.
Lutheran West has not beaten Clearview since December of 2008. It that game, then senior Stephon Seton led LW with 15 points, senior Adam Moses had 11, and senior Dan Bailey had 10. LW won the game then 49-42.
