KSCB News - March 11, 2010 12:00 am

The Southwestern Heights Mustangs boys basketball team fell to Minneapolis 64-47 on Wednesday in Hutchinson as the Mustangs made their first State Tournament appearance since 1992.

The Mustangs got off to a good start leading 15-13 after one quarter. The Lions went on a run in the second quarter though jumping out to a nine point lead and going into the locker room with a 28-22 halftime lead. In the third quarter Minneapolis pushed their lead up to ten, but Heights was able to cut the deficit back down to seven by the end of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, however, the Mustangs had two of their top three scorers in the game foul out.

Oscar Sigala led Heights with 14 points. Jacob Flores scored nine, while Wes Winfrey and Cory Ryan added seven points apiece.

The Lions shot 55 percent from the field holding the Mustangs to 36 percent from the field. Minneapolis was 20-26 from the field and SWH was 11-19.

Minneapolis improves to 20-4 overall and will play KC-Christian on Friday in the semi-finals at 4:45 p.m. Southwestern Heights finishes the season at 20-4 overall.
