MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) - The Luther Knights got out to a double-digit lead and couldn't be slowed down, cruising to a 79-51 win in a WIAA Division 4 Boys State Basketball semifinal Thursday night at the Kohl Center.
Luther used a 12-1 first half run to get out to a large lead and used a 13-0 early second half run to put things away, punctuated by a off-the-backboard alley-oop to Will Huelskamp who threw down an emphatic two-hand dunk.
Luther held a modest six-point advantage before going on a 12-1 run and blowing the game open about midway through the opening 18 minutes.
Luther plays Kenosha St. Joseph Catholic Academy in the Division 4 Championship on Saturday.
