Friday night, December 6, the men’s team played their best game of the year. They fought hard against NAIA D-II opponent Clarke University from Iowa. The Lakers went into the half down 10 points 46-36. They came out in the second half and played “toe to toe” with the Crusaders. The Lakers outscored the Crusaders in the second half and at one point cut the lead to 5 before falling by a score of 88-79. The Lakers received scoring from 10 different players including John Duke who had a team high 24 points to go with his 8 rebounds. Darius Barnes added 17 points and 8 rebounds, Anthony Parker scored 9 points, Kyle Lundberg added 8 points and 5 assists, Chris Jones scored 7 points, Dru Harris scored 5 points, Tyler Wells added 3 points, Austin Walker and Stevens Alexis scored 4 points each as did Derek Domino who also had a game high 7 assists.
The Lady Lakers started off the game extremely cold from the field and gave up 12 unanswered points to start off the game Friday evening. The Lady Lakers never recovered from the slow start and lost the game to a very athletic Indiana Northwest University Lady Red hawks 87 to 50. The Lady Red hawks were red hot from the field hitting 58.5% from the field and 42.9% from the 3 point line. I was very proud of our effort. The Lady Lakers played extremely hard on defense throughout the entire game. They never gave up despite the score. After reviewing the stats from Friday nights game, we match them in most categories except the shooting percentage.

Yesterday the men’s basketball team traveled to Chicago to take on the Concordia Chicago Cougars. The Lakers lost 93 – 69. The Lakers struggled from the opening tip to stay even with the Cougars. The Lakers battled back late in the first half to cut the lead to 24-23 but again falling victim to turnovers and poor shot selection as the Cougars went on a 17-2 run to end the half with the Lakers trailing 41-25.
The Lady Lakers improved their record to 4-2 tonight with a victory over cross town rivals UW Manitowoc Lady Blue Devils 94 to 51. The Lady Lakers played excellent defense especially in the beginning of the second half causing the Lady Blue Devils to turn the ball over 30 times. That is probably the best team defensive of the year. The Lady Lakers also dominated the offensive boards to give them several opportunities to score on second chances. I was very pleased with their effort but feel that we can get even better! The Lady Lakers are very young having eight of their ten players either sophomores or freshmen.

Last night the men’s basketball team defeated a strong Northland College team from Ashland, Wisconsin by the score of 94–78. The Lumberjacks fought toe to toe in the first half, but a long three point shot at the buzzer by John Duke proved to be a back-breaker and the Lakers took a 46 -40 lead into the locker room. The Lakers came out with high intensity in the second half and took the lead by as many as 22 points.
