River Forest, IL

CUW sprinted from a 35-33 halftime deficit to a 79-55 win over previously undefeated Concordia- Chicago (4-1) this afternoon on the loser's court.

After shooting just 33% for the first 20 minutes and trailing by as much as 11 points (26-15) , Shawn Cassidy's cagers turned on the afterburners with 60% marksmanship over the final 14 minutes to win going away.

The game was tied 43-43 with those 14 minutes remaining before David Lopez came off the Falcon bench to hit back-back 3 pointers followed by a layup to create an 8 point Concordia-Wisconsin cushion.

The befuddled Cougars, worn down by CUW depth, never got an closer.

Mitchell Schneider led the Falcons (3-1) offensively with 19 points while Lopez connected for 16. Edward Newton-Kemp (15) and Cory Stark (11) also finished in double figures.
