Southwest Girls and Boys Basketball Teams Sweep North Star

LINCOLN–(KFOR Feb. 10)–The Lincoln Southwest girls and boys basketball teams picked up victories on Saturday night in their matchup with Lincoln North Star.

In the girls game, the Silver Hawks used a big second half run to come away with a 43-35 victory over the Navigators at The Nest.  Both teams overcame poor shooting in the first half, but it was North Star that took an eight-point advantage into halftime largely due to good defense.

Southwest (18-3) got to within two, 24-22, late in the third quarter that was aided by four free-throws, a technical foul against North Star and Kallen Stauffer’s three-pointer.  Senior guard and Nebraska commit Kennadi Williams scored her game-high 21 points in the final quarter to take control and bounce back for the victory.

Kendall Anderson led North Star (16-4) in the loss with 13 points.
