OBERLIN --  Lutheran West built a 19-9 lead after one quarter of play and never looked back en route to a 67-39 victory over the Oberlin Phoenix.

The Longhorns came out strong and controlled the game from the beginning. They played to their level in the game and never let their opponents take control.

In addition to starting strong, the team continued to push and play their game. In the second quarter, LW outscored the Phoenix 10-4 and put the game away.

In the second half, the closest Oberlin could cut the Longhorn lead was to 16 points at 35-19 early in the third quarter.

Senior Greg Kunze led the Longhorns with 15 points off the bench. He entered the game with 3:54 left in the first quarter and scored eight points right then off of a pair of 3-pointers and a put-back on an offensive rebound.

Coach Alan Januzzi commented, “He’s one of our best players and when we bring him off the bench he brings energy and scoring when we start to rotate guys. To his credit, he started every game last year and he’s assumed the role off the bench in humble fashion and has really embraced coming off the bench.”

Junior Andrew O’Hara was the only other Longhorn in double-digits with 14 points.

Lutheran West played hard and showed their abilities in the match-up. LW dealt well with their opponents and played a clean game. They also demonstrated their strength and depth which will come in handy for the team as they go into a break for the holiday and come back to face a tough Clearview team.

The Longhorns are now 6-0 overall and 5-0 in PAC-12 play.
