After the break for exams, these two conference opponents came out looking to bring
some noise back to the building. It was a back and forth battle that went down to
the final second. Southwest got up by as many as 7 in the second quarter 20-13. The
visiting Vikings went on a 9-0 run to take their first lead 22-20 since being up
2-0. The Cowboys then scored 6 straight in a heartbeat but then it went tit for tat
as the halftime score was 29-28 with the home squad holding the slimmest of leads.
The second half was a similar tale with the Cowboys going up by as many as 10 in the
second half a couple of times, but Northwest would not go away. In a dogfight that
was relentless, the Cowboys were able to knock down a pair of clutch free-throws to
put the lead to 62-57. After matching missed shots, Northwest hit an amazing off
handed, off balanced 3 pointer with 1 second left to make the final talley at 62-60.
The Cowboys remain undefeated in the conference at 5-0 and are 12-4 on the season.
The Vikings were lead by Keaton Haack’s 21 points and several strong dunks. The
Cowboys were lead by Terrell Leach’s 23 points.
