NORFOLK – Finishing games has been a point of emphasis for Norfolk this season.
That hasn’t always been a strength for the Panthers this year. They surrendered a ten-point halftime lead in a loss to Kearney. They lost an eight-point lead going into the fourth quarter against Lincoln Southwest.
But Saturday, Norfolk was able to extend their three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter against #10 Papillion-La Vista South in a 55-46 win.
Free throws were a big part of that. The Panthers were 14-of-18 from the line in the final quarter, including 8-of-10 shooting from junior Tyson Stelling.
Norfolk next faces Grand Island on the road this coming Friday.
