    Westminster falls to Indian Creek
    Steve Nichols

    After trailing by as many as 12 points to Indian Creek in the third quarter, Westminster Christian tried desperately to cut into the lead via the outside shot to get at least a third-place trophy in its own Thanksgiving boys basketball tournament Saturday.

    Will Woodhouse connected on 2 3-pointers in the third to help cut the lead to 5 but that's as close as the Warriors (2-2) would get as many of their attempts from the outside failed to fall. Indian Creek outscored the Warriors 14-9 in the final quarter and took home the third-place trophy with a 51-41 win.

    Woodhouse finished with 16 points while Aaron Wiewel chipped in 10 points for the Warriors.

    "I think it was 18-15 and they went up about 9 or 10 and we missed 6 layups in the first half," said Westminster coach Bruce Firchau, whose team was outscored 14-8 in the second quarter. "Four power layups, driving layups, we missed 2 free throws. And it really hurt us. That game should have been tied at halftime so we were our own worst enemy."

    Firchau hopes his guards tighten up their decision making and finding their forwards down low for a nice inside outside game, which suffered in the second half. Westminster only converted 8 shots in the second half and managed 6 points in the final 4 minutes.

    "There's too much coming down and firing up," Firchau said. "We took some shots; we had some players take shots that's not in their shooting range and that really hurt us. We gave up the baseline a couple times defensively and I'm disappointed with that."
