Shining Mountain boys 75, Rocky Mountain Lutheran 24: The second-seeded Lions were never threatened while cruising to a first-round win the Class 1A District 8 tournament. Shining Mountain (18-2) will host third-seeded Jim Elliot on Thursday at 6 p.m. The Lions defeated Jim Elliot 74-38 on Jan. 22.
