Men’s Basketball concludes difficult three-game road swing Saturday

MEQUON, Wis. - Concordia University Wisconsin's men's basketball team will conclude their most difficult road trip of the season on Saturday at 4:15 p.m. when they travel to Rockford College. The Rockford clash will conclude a three game road set where the Falcons faced a team that spent time atop the NAC divisional standings recently; all in one five day period.

Fans unable to make the trip can follow the action with live statistics or live audio.

CUW (11-4, 7-2) opened the week with a thrilling 70-69 victory at Lakeland College on Tuesday after senior Luke Doedens (Cedarburg, Wis.) made a pair of free throws with 2.0 seconds remaining in the game. The Falcons then traveled to Edgewood College on Thursday night hoping to knock off their second straight opponent who was in first place in the North Division, but fell 83-69.

Doedens leads CUW with a 17.0 points per game average and currently ranks second in the nation in 3-point shooting percentage (51.1). Seniors Mitchell Schneider (New Holstein, Wis.) is also scoring in double-figures (15.1 per game) and Matt Paluchniak (Oostburg, Wis.) has directed the offense to the tune of 69 assists compared to 28 turnovers.
