NWAACC men's roundup

March 3, 2013 

Top-ranked Big Bend may play only six men with any regularity. But when one of those guys plays like Brendan Westendorf did on Sunday, six is plenty.

The Vikings held off hard-charging Whatcom 71-69 behind 36 points from Westendorf to advance to the semifinals of the NWAACC Championships at the Toyata Center.

The 6-foot-5 freshman guard from Kent scored 12 of Big Bend’s final 16 points after the Orcas (19-9) had climbed out of a 15-point hole in the second half and took the lead with 5 minutes to play.

Kyle Impero piled up 20 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals for Whatcom. Nicholas Kussman and Ian Tevis combined for 26 points and 15 rebounds.

Westendorf’s scoring total was tops for the tourney’s first two days. He finished 12-for-23 (52 percent) from the floor and a perfect 11-for-11 from the foul line. The Vikings (26-4) shot 81 percent (17-for-21) from the free-throw line.
