Justin Neggard added eight points, three steals and three blocked shots. Mason Ericson had five rebounds and three blocked shots. Kedzen Blankenship pitched in with four assists.

“We played well the whole game,” said West Sioux Coach Jerome Hoegh.

West Sioux led 22-12 after one quarter, 38-28 at halftime, 53-39 after three quarters.
