HOW IT HAPPENED
- The Falcons never led on Saturday as the Storm scored the first five points and held a lead throughout most of the first half. A 5-5 tie was the only tie between the Falcons and Simpson, who had a lead of as many as 16 points in the opening half. CUW closed the opening half strong, cutting that 16 point lead to eight before the break.
- In the second half, the Falcons deficit hovered around 8-12 points for most of the final 20 minutes. The Falcons never got within five points, allowing Simpson to pick up the non-league win.
- CUW outshot the Storm on Saturday but a minus 10 performance in the turnover battle proved to be costly. The Falcons were 25-of-56 (44.6 percent) from the floor but finished the contest with 20 turnovers, while Simpson was 24-of-58 (41.4 percent) from the field but turned the ball over just 10 times.
- The Falcons also had an advantage from 3-point range, connecting on 10-of-24 attempts (41.7 percent). Simpson made just 6-of-24 from deep.
- Hau (Slinger, Wis.) paced the offense with 19 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Jake Jurss (Sheboygan, Wis.) added 18 points and connected on 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Fratzke (Winona, Minn.) led all players with his 10 rebounds.
BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
- Fratzke now has 11 double-doubles in his career. The junior forward recorded two during his freshman season and tallied eight last year.
- CUW will host Loras in the 2017-18 home opener on Tuesday night. The game will be the second part of a women's/men's doubleheader and is set for an 8 p.m. start.
