Elkhorn (7-5) trailed by six points at halftime but couldn’t stay with Whitnall (11-3), which won its third straight game.

Herro, a University of Kentucky commit, has averaged 39 points per game since returning from a calf injury that forced him to miss several weeks. The 6-foot-5 guard is averaging 29.3 points per game overall.
