Final Day of Three Day 66 Classic
On Saturday, both Luther teams played for third place.
Coach Johnny Vick said the team went with a different defensive strategy, a zone press instead of man-on-man defense, to shake up the Lady Tigers, who they played earlier in the week.
The Lion boys had a tougher game. They came within five points of the win with two minutes left, but couldn’t pull it off and lost 65-53 to the Tecumseh Savages.
