Salpointe (16-16) junior Luc Rosenblatt scored a career high 24 points, with 6-of-8 from beyond the arc, to give the Lancers a shot and fellow junior Orion Ochoa also came up big with 17, going 7-7 at the free throw line.
“Luc is our quiet leader from day one,” said Salpointe head coach Jim Reynolds. “He has the pulse of our team and we are going to need everyone to contribute if we are going to continue to grow. It wasn’t just two guys tonight.”
