West boys basketball

They went into Christmas break with a 3-7 overall record and a 3-6 record in the Woodland-West, last place in the six-team division.
In the win over the Panthers on Friday, the Vikings got off to a good start, taking a 16-9 lead after the first quarter and then increasing the margin by one (9-8) to take a 25-17 at intermission.
They increased their lead to 34-20 after three quarters and then held off the Panthers in the final period, when the latter went on a 22-16 run.
Both teams were terrible from the free throw line, each sinking less than 50 percent (15-for-31) or the game might have turned out different for either team.
The Panthers had the game's high scorer in Jordan Perez, who had 25 points, including 9-for-14 from the charity stripe, while the Vikings were led by Darin Sowinski, who scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
West's Tyler Thompson had 12 points, five rebounds and three steals. Austin Fritz added 11 points, five rebounds and two assists and Brett Connors scored five points and pulled down nine rebounds.
In the loss to Whitnall to start the week, the Vikings were bad once again from the free throw line, hitting 8-for-20.

Whitnall got off to a 16-9 first quarter lead and then increased it to 28-18 at intermission. They increased the lead to after three quarters, 47-32.
Danny Weymier led all scorers with 17 points and Mitch Brault had 11 to lead the Falcons.
New Berlin Wrestling
The Eisenhower/West co-op dropped a 52-18 decision to powerful Wauwatosa East/West on Dec. 19 at New Berlin West in their only action last week.
New Berlin got points with two pins and two decisions.
Emilio Gutierrez at 220 and Ben Clark at heavyweight both won on pins and Kevin Theissenhussen at 170 and Alex Rodriguez at 195 won with decisions.
"Tosa is a solid team throughout the lineup and they were able to wrestle their style against us," New Berlin coach Nick Patenaude said "We reacted against them, instead of wrestling our way, which is reflected in the team score.
"When you allow the other team to control the match and wrestle their style it is very difficult to win dual meets. Tosa is well-coached and has an excellent opportunity to compete for a conference title this year."
