MILWAUKEE, Wis.-Junior Jake Schwarz scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Lakeland College men's basketball to a 96-74 win over Wisconsin Lutheran College at the Recreation Complex.
With the win, Lakeland completed the season sweep over the Warriors and finish tied for second in the NAC North Division with Edgewood College.
After a slow start, the 18-6 Muskies took complete control of the game after Schwarz hit a pair of free throws to help Lakeland build a five-point lead at the 13:44 mark. The nation's seventh leader in scoring offense hit six 3-pointers in the first half to build a 17-point lead and took a 49-35 advantage at halftime.
The Muskies imposed their will on Wisconsin Lutheran in the second half, quickly running up a consistent 20-point lead. Lakeland led by as many as 30 points behind a 35-point performance from the bench. Senior Eric Vandivier led the bench with nine points and three assists, while freshman Joey Burris chipped in with seven points and four assists.
Sophomore Justin Ward finished the night with 18 points and senior Josh Regal dished out a game-high 10 assists.
The Muskies return to NAC action on Saturday in the NAC Challenge game as they host Rockford College in a 4 p.m. tip.
