WAVERLY (KWWL) -

Wartburg built up a massive first quarter lead and cruised to the finish as the second ranked Knights rolled past number 12 George Fox. The victory pushes Wartburg in to the sweet sixteen for the second time in three years.

The Knights blasted out to a 31-12 lead after the first quarter and never saw that lead drop below double digits the rest of the way.

Morgan Neuendorf led the Knights with 19 points, shooting better than 50 percent from the floor. Kristie Sommer added another 15 and hit 3 of 5 from behind the three point line.

The Knights advance to face Trine in the sweet sixteen at a site yet to be determined.
