Schroeder Holds On To Eliminate Aquinas

Emmitt Holt too tough inside for Irish
Emmitt Holt had 19 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks to guide (4)Schroeder past (5)Aquinas 65-47 in a Class AA quarterfinal played in Webster Saturday night. 

Connor Scott scored a game and career high 24 points for the Warriors and Brandan Gartland added 14.

Schroeder led by seven at the half and built the lead to 41-25 late in the third quarter. A 10-1 Aquinas run in the fourth quarter got the Lil' Irish within seven, but Schroeder began a parade to the free throw line that closed the game out. 

Melvin Grayson led Aquinas with 16 points. 

Schroeder will face top-seeded Athena in Wednesday's semifinals at Blue Cross Arena. Athena fought off (8)Kearney 71-62 Saturday afternoon. 
The game is the last of three at the Big House. It's slated for an 8:45pm tip, but will likely begin later.
