Giltner advances to D2 semifinals

Giltner came into the state tournament looking to win a rematch with Wilcox-Hildreth by playing a different style of basketball. Check. 

The Hornets took an early lead and never surrendered in a 40-34 opening round victory over the Falcons Thursday at Lincoln Southeast to begin the Class D2 state tournament. 

Giltner flipped the script from last week's district final by tightening up on the defensive end and playing with more physicality overall. 

Josh Hinrichs scored 15 points to lead the Hornets, who had eight in the scorebook. 

The Hornets advance to play top-ranked Falls City Sacred Heart in Friday’s 7:00 p.m. semifinal at the Devaney Center.
