ROCKFORD-Lutheran's basketball team got a big send-off before leaving for Peoria Thursday morning. A pep rally was held at Lutheran High School at 7:45 before classes began. The team then boarded a charter bus and headed south for the State Tournament.

Lutheran will play Lincoln in a 3A semifinal game Friday at 12:15 p.m. There won't be school Friday, so students and fans can attend the game.

The game can also be seen live on Rockford's MyNetwork TV (digital channel 17.2 over-the-air, Comcast and Charter Cable Channel 16, Direct TV Channel 18).
