Knights End Season with Loss at Northwestern
ST. PAUL – The MLC men’s basketball team closed out its season with a 71-48 loss at Northwestern Saturday night.
The Knights scored the first two points of the game, but it would be all Northwestern the rest of the way. The Eagles went on a 22-2 run to take a 22-4 lead, and held MLC to 13 points in the first half on the way to a 21-point lead at the break.
MLC played the Eagles even for much of the second half, but never made a run that cut into to the NWC advantage on the way to the loss.
Much like the first meeting between the two teams this season, Northwestern did much of its damage from beyond the three-point arc, going 13-31 for the game while holding MLC to 1-9 from distance for the game.
As he did for much of the season, Galen Holzhueter led the Knights offensively with 14 points. He also led the team with nine rebounds.
Joining him in double figures were Justin Danell and Justin Eternick with ten points apiece.
With the loss, MLC ended its season with a record of 2-22 overall and 2-12 in the UMAC, while Northwestern improved to 15-10 on the season and 10-4 in league play.
