Luers brings it home

Bishop Luers 69, Winchester 67
DeShaun Thomas is known as an outstanding scorer and strong rebounder, but it was a pass that the Fort Wayne Bishop Luers sophomore made that proved pivotal Saturday.

In the final 90 seconds of a tie game, Thomas passed out of a double-team to Jake Kuhn, who dropped in a short jumper for his only points and the Knights posted a thrilling 69-67 victory over Winchester for the Class 2A boys basketball state championship Saturday at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The title was the first in program history for Luers (24-3) but capped a football-basketball double for the parochial Catholic school this academic year.

Congratulations, Luers! What a great year.
