LEWISTON, Idaho -- In its final season playing in the Frontier Conference, the Lewis-Clark State men's basketball team went out on top, beating Carroll College 75-54 in the Frontier Conference championship on Monday.
From the jump, the Warrior were out for blood in a physical game and made their presence known around the rim, out-rebounding the Fighting Saints 34-21. The Saints struggled to get any momentum going on offense and were forced to be uncomfortable, and it ultimately showed, shooting only 27 percent from 3-point range and 35 percent overall.
Lewis-Clark's Josiah Westbrook, just three nights distanced from a five-point effort against Montana State-Northern, put together a beautiful night of shooting, knocking down five 3-pointers for 15 of his game-high 19 points on the night. Travis Yenor and Jake Albright added 15 and 13 points, respectively, to the Warriors' final tally.
Shamrock Campbell and Dane Warp led Carroll College with 12 points each, while Warp also compiled eight rebounds.
Both Lewis-Clark State and Carroll College will find out on March 11 where they will be ranked in the final NAIA top-25 coaches poll and what seed they will represent at the NAIA National Tournament in Kansas City, Missouri.
