Falcon men edge Benedictine 85-83

Lisle, Il

After building a 47-42 halftime lead, CUW (22-3) was able to hold off host Benedictine 85-83 in the NAC crossover game at BU this Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles (18-7) got within a point at 77-76 with 2:50 to play but a pair of free throw by Luke Doedens, followed by layups by Mitchell Schneider and Cory Stark rebuilt the lead. Benedictine actually cut the final margin to 2 on a 3 pointer at the buzzer.

Doedens led Concordia with 21 points, but an 11 point effort by reserve David Lopez off the bench was key. So too was a 7 point and 6 rebound performance by another reserve; Zach Neumann.

Shawn Cassidy's Nationally Ranked and #! seeded Falcons host #8 Wisconsin Lutheran on Wednesday in round one of the NAC Tourney.
