Luers Remains

Fort Wayne Bishop Luers, after defeating Bluffton in a great game for the Woodlan Sectional Championship, has gone on to win the Tipton Regional in a high-scoring overtime game against Northfield.

It took overtime and a school-record 48 points and 17 of 19 from the free-throw line from DeShaun Thomas for the Knights to outlast upset-minded Northfield 94-81 in overtime Saturday in the championship game of the Class 3A Tipton Regional.

Luers (22-3) advances to play No. 2 Westview (24-1) in the semistate Saturday.

Luers appears to be one of those teams which only plays as good as it has to to win... Woodlan and Bluffton (and now Northfield) stayed with the Knights all the way to the end. One difference being that both Woodlan and Bluffton put the clamps on DeShaun Thomas, while Northfield could not.

Congratulations to Luers who appear to be the only area team still standing.
