INDEPENDENCE -- 
For the second time in four days, LW knocked off Independence. This time it wasn’t just another regular season game, but rather the first game of the sectional tournament. LW led for the entire game—and by as many as eight in the first half—but had to hold onto the lead as Independence gave them a scare in the final seconds of the game. 
After a tight first quarter, LW pulled away from the Blue Devils with a 12-5 second quarter and led at half time 22-14. Unfortunately, a sloppy third quarter, and only six points of offense, led to a 28-23 lead going into the final quarter. 
The Longhorns shot a dismal 19% from the floor in the game, but salvaged their poor shooting with 16 of 23 from the free throw line—70%. They also grabbed 24 rebounds and snagged 11 steals. 
The win puts LW in the sectional finals against rival Brooklyn. Brooklyn has beaten LW twice already this year.
