West survives late East surge

WICHITA, Kan. Despite a late 2nd half surge for Wichita East, It was the West Pioneers who got the win on Senior night in front of the home fans, 40-35.

West was led by 11 point performances from both Senior Lajada Owens and Junior Takia Profit.

The 2nd quarter was the killer for East, who only scored two points the entire quarter. They surged late, outscoring West 14-9 in the 4th. But it wasn't enough in the end as West hit some critical free throws down the stretch to hang on.
