MLK --  Lutheran West got balanced scoring from its five starters—and overcame zero points from its bench—to defeat a very athletic Martin Luther King Jr. team en route to a first round sectional tournament win on Wednesday. 

Senior Dan Hillenbrand had 17 points and junior Chris Scott put in 13 to lead the Longhorns.  Senior Chris Ranc had 12 while junior Greg Kunze and senior Kyle Masek each had 9 to complete the Longhorn scoring. 

After falling behind 15-10 to start the game, LW finished the half on a slow, sloppy 11-3 run and took a 21-18 lead into half time.  A 19 point third quarter put LW up 40-28.  LW never looked back and coasted to a 13 point victory.  The final score was bit closer than the game was as MLK hit a couple of three pointers in the waning moments of the fourth quarter to make the final score respectful. 

West advances to the Sectional Finals against Gilmour.  LW lost to Gilmour 67-46 in mid-January earlier this year.
