West then hit their free throws in the OT and beat Middleton 53-48 Thursday night at the State Tournament. Coach Galligan is riding his seniors as all four played over 30 minutes in the game and scored 47 of West's 53 points. They play De Pere tonight.

He decided that this might be his last chance to play and will be a key bench player for the Brewers this season.
