My last post was all about the hearts of Badger fans breaking over the men’s basketball team’s loss to #3 Michigan yesterday. But that doesn’t mean all area college basketball was doom and gloom.
Including games from Saturday and Sunday, area colleges went 5-1 in their games. The UWL men, ranked #14 last week, got revenge for their loss at River Falls with an 83-52 drubbing of the Falcons on the 12th while the women fell on the road 61-54. Meanwhile, Winona State swept action against Concordia-St. Paul Saturday with the women winning a nail-biter 68-67 and the men claiming victory more comfortably 77-58, and Viterbo won 66-54 and 82-66 respectively over Presentation College.
The 4-1 Eagle men next take on Stout up in Menomonie this Wednesday while the ladies will host the Blue Devils at Mitchell Hall. WSU next faces Upper Iowa while both Viterbo units are at Waldorf tomorrow night.
