Danville and Peoria Notre Dame provided a state-ranked, Big 12 clash between evenly-matched teams and it was entertaining through the end with 10 lead changes.

The sixth-ranked (Class 4A) Vikings prevailed in the second half for a 51-46 win over the Irish, tied for fifth in Class 3A.

It was back-and-forth early on before Danville pulled out to a 28-21 lead early in the third quarter before Notre Dame used a 8-point run to take a 29-28 lead. With 1:28 left in the third quarter, Tevin Smith hit a 3-pointer that put Danville ahead for good, though the margin was never larger than four until Sean Houpt’s free throws with 28.1 seconds left made it a final.

Here are the best things we saw with lines of the night.
