Concordia's Strong Second Half Dumps Muskies
Dec. 6, 2003
Despite their 46 percent shooting, the Lakeland College men's basketball team turned the ball over 31 times, giving the visiting Concordia Falcons the 79-58 victory Saturday afternoon at Lakeland.
Cory Nickel led the way for the Muskies with a team-high 17 points, but Ryan Wietor of the Falcons stole the show with 25 points, seven rebounds, and four steals. Eric Wilbee collected a team-high seven rebounds for Lakeland, while Ryan Hiir and Nickel added six each.
The Muskies led at halftime, 32-29, but the Falcons pulled away with a 56.7 second half shooting percentage and terrific free throw shooting at 21 of 22 (95.5 percent for the game).
The loss opened the conference schedule on a bad note for the Muskies, who dropped to 0-1 in the conference and 2-4 overall.
They will look to rebound from the tough loss Tuesday, December 9, against Edgewood College in Madison at 7 p.m.
