OBERLIN --  The Longhorns avenged their past loss to Oberlin earlier in the season by picking up a win against the Phoenix on the road in Tuesday’s game. Coming into the fourth quarter, the game was tied up, but a strong fourth quarter helped the Longhorns edge out Oberlin, 60-52, in conference play.

The majority of the game, for both teams, was spent in an even battle. Lutheran West and Oberlin swapped baskets throughout the entire first three quarters. At halftime, Oberlin was up by a slight margin of 25-24. The third quarter was no different with the teams evenly matched. Junior Greg Kunze knocked down two threes in the third quarter, but Oberlin’s Marcus Bailey answered with two threes before the end of the third quarter.

However, the fourth quarter was different for the Longhorns. The Longhorns started the fourth quarter off with a bang when senior Dan Hillenbrand was able to leak out for a fast break after a steal by junior Chris Scott for a thunderous dunk to give the Longhorns momentum and energy. The Longhorns continued to play well and made defensive stops, while the Longhorns outscored Oberlin 23-15 in the fourth quarter, which helped give the Longhorns the edge to beat Oberlin.

The Longhorns were able to avenge their past loss against Oberlin earlier in the season when the Phoenix beat the Longhorns by 13 points. The Longhorns were able to take back the win on the road in Oberlin, as well as getting the win on Oberlin’s senior night. Hillenbrand led all scorers with 24 points on the night, followed closely by Kunze who had 17 points.
