ROCKY RIVER --  The Lutheran West men's basketball team extended its three-game losing streak by one more game after falling to the Oberlin Phoenix 77-64. After playing a close three quarters, which ended with the Longhorns having a 50-49 advantage, the Phoenix had a 28-point fourth quarter that led to their win.

The Longhorns struggled to close the game; they were able to play three strong quarters, but made just 4 of 15 shots in the fourth. After the loss, Coach Alan Januzzi said, “We played well for most of the game. We got the ball into Hillenbrand, which was our plan. We got away from getting the ball inside, which was what we needed to do. Teams have to make shots down the stretch against a team like Oberlin.” When West got Hillenbrand the ball, he was able to convert and scored 25 of the team’s points.

While LW struggled in the fourth quarter, the Phoenix took advantage and built on what they had been doing in the past three quarters. They continued to run a strong offense, in which five players scored in double-digits. In addition, the Phoenix were able to connect on 11-12 free throws in the last period alone. Overall, Oberlin was able to make six three-point shots and shot 46% from the floor.

The Longhorns are now 4-8 overall and 3-5 in PAC-12 play.
