Luther defeated Central tonight in Pella by a final of 79-72. The victory snapped a two-game losing streak and gives the Norse an American Rivers Conference record of 4-10, 8-15 overall. Central fell to 2-12 in league play, 5-18 overall. The victory also secured the season sweep of the Dutch.
The Dutch led 39-37 at halftime but were outscored by the Norse 42-33 in the second stanza. The Norse finished the night connecting on 41% of their shots that included a 12-of-31 performance from behind the three-point line. The free throw line proved to be the difference as Luther was 17-of-22 and Central was 8-of-9.
Adam Flinn led the Dutch with a game high 21.
