WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis.- Concordia Wisconsin (5-4) led for most of this evening's contest, but a sudden uncharacteristic lull on both ends of the court allowed UW-Oshkosh (5-6) to rally for a 70-62 win.
CUW's defense held the Titans to just 25% shooting during a workmanlike first half before the tables turned swiftly as UW-O hit one difficult shot after another while the Falcons went ice cold.
Concordia was on top 45-38 with just over nine minutes remaining before a 10 point Titan burst over the next 60 seconds turned things around to the extent that the Falcons stayed close but never fully recovered.
Shawn Cassidy's team was eventually forced to foul down the stretch and the Titans increased their lead from four points with a minute remaining to the final 70-62 cushion.
The victors, who had seven players score between eight and 15 points, were torrid from the field and the charity stripe during the second half. Besides improving their game-long field goal percentage to 41%, the Titans knocked down 17 of 20 free throw opportunties.
CUW plays UW-Stout on Sunday.
