Lutheran South played a solid game from wire to wire, their 12th victory of the year.
If Parker Van Nest has taken geometry at Lutheran South, then he knows the shortest distance between two points is a flat line. Shooting free throws with just a bit of arc on them, Van Nest was lights out down the stretch, converting both ends of 1 and 1 free throw opportunities three times, and hitting on the front end of another, enough points to lift Lutheran South to a 52-44 win over home team MICDS. This was exam week for the host Rams (11-11) and they played like it. Holding second place in the conference, the Rams went scoreless for the first 4:33 of the third quarter, and what was a 21-18 halftime deficit turned into a commanding 31-21 Lancer lead midway through the third. Actually, the Rams could muster just 8 points in the third …

Their lone loss during that stretch was a 9-3 setback at home against Westminster. “This was a great experience and great opportunity for our guys,” Lutheran South head coach Steve Pfund said. “I think we came out nervous in the first inning and gave up a few runs, but once we settled in, the guys did a great job at the plate and Gary (Yearout) did a great job pitching.” Yearout completed six innings in which he gave up two earned runs on five hits. The senior left-…
