Men’s Basketball hosts Silver Lake tonight at 7 p.m.

MEQUON, Wis. - After shooting a sizzling 62.5 percent from the field on Tuesday, the Concordia University Wisconsin men's basketball team looks to continue its hot shooting on tonight at 7 p.m. when it hosts Silver Lake College in a non-conference matchup inside the R. John Buuck Field House.

Fans unable to make it to the game can watch the action with live video.

The Falcons' 89-68 Northern Athletics Conference victory over Wisconsin Lutheran College on Tuesday was a complete team effort as every Falcon (4-1) played at least three minutes on the hardwood. Multiple players had career nights scoring, most notably senior Mitchell Schneider (New Holstein, Wis.) and junior Brian Jackson (Carol Stream, Ill.) who scored 26 and 15 points respectively.

Thus far in the season, senior Luke Doedens (Cedarburg, Wis.) and Schneider lead the team with 18.4 and 18.0 points per game averages. The two have combined to steal 20 passes, while senior Matt Paluchniak (Oostburg, Wis.) has dished out 20 assists.

Silver Lake (1-6) enters the contest on a six-game losing streak since defeating Purdue University North Central, 75-65, in the Lakers' season opener. The Lakers are averaging 63.9 points per game. SLC's roster is a veteran squad with 8 players being upperclassmen.

CUW returns to NAC action on Saturday when it travels to Benedictine for a 4:30 p.m. matchup. The game is the second part of a doubleheader after the CUW- Benedictine women tip off at 2 p.m.
