ROCKY RIVER --  Tuesday’s game was a tale of two distinctly different games for the Longhorns in their conference matchup against the Clearview Clippers. The Longhorns led the Clippers for the first three quarters, with leads as large as ten points. However, the Clippers dominated the fourth quarter to steal the victory, 79-70.

After jumping out to a sizeable advantage of 18-10 in the first quarter, the Longhorns pushed the lead to 13 with a scoring run of 8-3 in the first two minutes of the second quarter. Even though Clearview regrouped after the Longhorn scoring spree, cut the lead to 34-29 at halftime, and came back from halftime with lots of energy—including a dunk off of a fast break, the Longhorns answered with an 11-2 run.  In the ensuing two minutes of the dunk, Lutheran West got three pointers from junior Greg Kunze and senior Kyle Masek, a jump shot from senior Chris Ranc and then a three point play by junior Chris Scott to reset their lead to 51-41 with 3:32 to play in the third.

Then it all changed. 

Over the course of the final 11:32, Clearview outscored Lutheran West 38-19.  It started with two threes right before the end of the third quarter to make the score 55-50 going into the fourth. Two minutes later, the Clippers took their first lead of the night off of a layup at 57-55. Yet, with less than three minutes to play in the game, the Longhorns were still in the game and only trailed 66-61.

Clearview then went to work at the line, and pushed their lead to eight with 1:52 to play at 69-61. In the quarter, Clearview hit 13 of 16 free throws, eventually winning 79-70.
