02/23/2013 - A-4 DISTRICT BOYS BASKETBALL: T-BIRDS HOLD OFF GATOR COMEBACK

OMAHA---No matter how much Lincoln North Star tried, they couldn't get over the hump against Bellevue West.


The Gators, who had an early lead, got as close as one point in the second half and the Thunderbirds pulled away for a 73-59 victory in the A-4 District semifinals Saturday night at the Benson Garden at Omaha Benson High School.


Chris Martin scored 24 points to lead Bellevue West (14-9), while Deon Pettigrew added 23 points to put the Thunderbirds in the Monday 7 p.m. championship game against Omaha Benson.  Martin converted on five three-pointers and helped the T-Birds to a 25-17 second quarter lead with 4:00 left.

Bellevue West led 33-23 at halftime, but North Star (13-11) came out swinging in the third quarter.

Devonte Holt scored nine of his 20 points during a stretch the Gators closed the deficit to 43-42 after a Tyler Coufal hit a three-pointer.  But Martin scored on a three-point play to give Bellevue West a 46-42 third quarter advantage.

Whenever North Star scored, Bellevue West answered back.  Pettigrew and Clester Johnson each converted on three-point plays down the stretch.
