Brady Kuchinka led the Tigers with 16 points in the game which included 3 3-point field goals.  Jesse Oliver added 14 points for the Tigers which also included 3 3-point baskets.  Eli Custer, although held to just 3 points in the game, had a game high 11 rebounds.  The Cardinals were led by sophomore Alex Brown with 11 points followed by Cullin Neeck’s 9 points and team high 5 rebounds.

The Tigers improved their record to 23-3 on the season and will now play St. Charles (23-4) who beat La Crescent by a score of 55-49 on Tuesday to advance to Monday’s semi-final.  The game will be played at the Mayo Civic Arena in Rochester at 7:30.    Lewiston-Altura, who will lose just one player to graduation, ends their season at 8-18.
