Second half leads CUW men past Dubuque 100-82

Waukesha

Concordia broke from a slim 43-42 halftime advantage and eventually raced past the University of Dubuque 100-82 tonight in the first round of the Carroll Classic.

"We just tried to do too much in the first half and had players in foul trouble early. We were much more efficient offensively in the second half, finding the open man, hitting cutters, and making good decisions. Our defense forced enough turnovers to disrupt their offense in key stretches," said Coach Shawn Cassidy.


Edward Newton-Kemp was outstanding for CUW with a 30 point performance that included 10-15 from the field, 6 of 8 from the line, and 7 rebounds.

Mitchell Schneider (19); Cory Stark (15); and Luke Doedens (14) all reached double figures.

The Falcons won the rebound battle 38-28 and forced Dubuque into 23 turnovers.

Mitch Michaelis led the losers with 27 points including a perfect 14-14 from the charity stripe.

Red-hot CUW shot 59% for the game while improving to 2-0. The Falcons play Carroll at 3pm on Saturday.
