Lena-Winslow overcome Wildt's wild performance

ERIE, Ill. – After his team fell behind 13-5 in the opening quarter, Nich Wildt kept his Erie boys basketball team in the contest. But in the end, his five 3-point baskets and 17 points weren’t quite enough Saturday as Lena-Winslow beat the host school 48-40 at the Cliff Warkins Cardinal Classic.

Hank Holm matched Wildt’s 17 to lead Lena-Winslow.

Erie was scheduled to play Mercer County for ninth place today at 1:30 p.m.
