The Lakeland College men's basketball team continues Northern Athletics Conference play this week hosting a big early season game with Edgewood College on Wednesday and Concordia University Chicago on Saturday.
The Muskies (3-1, 2-0 NAC) are coming off a big week where the team captured two convincing NAC victories. Lakeland recorded a 110-79 win over Maranatha Baptist Bible College on Nov. 29 and a 77-58 victory over Dominican University on Dec. 3.
Edgewood heads to Woltzen Gym on Wednesday at 7-0 overall and is receiving votes in the d3hoops.com Top 25 poll. Wednesday's winner will be the last unbeaten team in the NAC North.
Lakeland junior forward Jake Schwarz led the team in both games last week. He scored a game-high 36 points against Maranatha Baptist en route to joining the 1,000-point club. Schwarz became the 38th player in the program's history to earn the feat. He leads the NAC in scoring with 29 points per game.
Lakeland returns home this week after shooting 49.3 percent from the floor and hopes to display its shooting abilities in this week's games.
