Muskies Roll Over Regents
Athletics - posted on 2/1/2007
Matt Rogers scored 23 points as the Lakeland men's basketball ball team improved its Northern Athletics Conference record to 8-5 with a 90-57 win over Rockford on Thursday.
Rogers started despite having nose surgery Wednesday. He also grabbed eight rebounds and tallied three assists.
Leading 17-15 with seven minutes left in the first half, Lakeland held Rockford without a field goal for the rest of the half and entered the locker room ahead 32-17.
The lead continued to grow as Lakeland went up 62-35 after an Andrew Washington layup nine minutes into the second half.
The closest the Regents got after that was 26 points.
Lakeland's big men proved to be the most valuable asset of the night, as the Muskies out-rebounded the Regents 47-33. Danny Ehnert finished with 12 points and a game-high nine rebounds, while David Hoerres and Tyrone Coleman grabbed seven and six boards, respectively.
"When Matt [Rogers], Danny [Ehnert], David [Hoerres], and Tyrone [Coleman] all rebound like they did tonight, nobody can beat us," said head coach Kyle Brumett.
The Muskies shot only 35 percent from the floor in the first half, but improved to 58 percent in the second half to score a season-high 58 second half points.
Entering this week, the Muskies had lost three straight games, all of which were conference away games, but Lakeland took advantage of returning home this week, winning a pair of games over Concordia University-Chicago and Rockford.
"It was nice coming back here and getting two wins," said Brumett. "It gives us great momentum heading back on the road to Concordia (Wis.)."
Lakeland will face Concordia on Saturday in Mequon. Tip-off is scheduled to follow the women's basketball game at 4:15 p.m.
