A big shooting performance from Andrew Bridger helped Lincoln Northeast fend off Lincoln Southwest Wednesday at the Heartland Athletic Conference Holiday Tournament in Fremont. The 6-foot senior knocked down 30 points to pace the Rockets to a 67-57 win over the Silverhawks, setting up a showdown with Lincoln East Thursday. Bridger's 30 was not the lone double-digit scoring performance of the contest, junior Wendell Faines added 18 for Northeast, who remains undefeated at 6-0. Dylan Aylward led Southwest with 14 points, while Creighton baseball recruit Ian Dike chipped in 11.
