Falcon men overwhelm Aurora 89-65

Aurora, IL

"I can't say enough about our intensity," beamed Coach Shawn Cassidy after his Falcons manhandled Aurora 89-65 on the road this afternoon.

CUW (7-1) blistered the nets at a 53% clip, won the rebound battle 44-35, and controlled the game on both ends from start to finish.

Mitchell Schneider led the way offensively with 23 points including 7-10 long range marksmanship, and teammate Cory Stark hauled down a dozen rebounds and Edward Newton-Kemp scored his 1000th point as a Falcon to join an elite group.

Luke Doedens and Matt Paluchniak combined for 11 assists as the Falcons shared the ball beautifully to get open looks.

Fast-starting Concordia led 9-0 after two minutes and never allowed the Spartans to get within hailing distance. "This is a tough place to play but we were obviously ready," added Cassidy.
