The White House Blue Devils held on Tuesday for a 58-57 victory at Westmoreland, improving to 11-10 overall and 8-3 in District 9-AA, locking up almost a sure second seed in the tournament.
White House led by as much as 15, but the lead dropped in the fourth quarter when Westmoreland hit a barrage of threes to get back into the game, including four in the final two minutes.
Junior Amarion Lucas had 19 points to lead the Blue Devils, and freshman Ryan Worrell added 11 points and iced the game with two free throws with 6.6 seconds left to give White House a four-point lead. Westmoreland trailed 56-51 when Collin Casteel hit a three to make it two–point game before Worrell was fouled.
After Worrell went to the line, Kamryn Eden hit a three at the buzzer to close the gap to one.
Westmoreland fell to 2-8 in the district and could be the likely opponent for White House in the District Tournament as the 2 vs. 7 matchup.
