Final Score: Oglethorpe 82, Concordia Wisconsin 69
Location: Ocean Center (Daytona Beach, Fla.)
Records: Oglethorpe 5-4, Concordia Wisconsin 6-6

- Oglethorpe put together a dishearting scoring run for Concordia Wisconsin, who led by five points with 14 minutes to play in the game. Over the next six-plus minutes, the Stormy Petrels scored 18 points (four layups and four 3-pointers during the run) to sway all the momentum in their favor.
- A large reason the opposition put the game away in the second half was their 64.5 pecent shooting (20-of-31) and seven 3-pointers.
The Falcons were never able to get any closer than their double-figure deficit and ended the tournament by splitting the two games played.
- Junior Jake Jurss (Sheboygan, Wis.) led Concordia Wisconsin with 20 points (four 3-pointers), while freshman Jordan Johnson (Cedarburg, Wis.) scored 12 points off the bench.
- Sophomore Matt Ulrich (Palatine, Ill.) scored a career-high 10 points, to go along with four assists and three steals. Senior Noah Gosse (Green Bay, Wis.) ended with 10 points in 16 minutes of action.

- The Falcons bench outscored the Stormy Petrels 27-4 in the loss.

- Will Perry led all players with 28 points on 12-of-18 shooting (three 3-pointers), to go along with eight rebounds and four steals.
- Chris Lawrence added 21 points, while Connor Smith chipped in 19 points, four rebounds and two steals.

- Concordia Wisconsin hosts Wisconsin Lutheran on January 3 in a NACC contest at 7 pm inside the R. John Buuck Field House.
