    Wildcats hold off second-half Midland rally for 70-66 men's exhibition win
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Wayne State College made 14-of-16 free throws in the second half while sophomore Kendall Jacks poured in a team-high 20 points as the Wildcats held off a second-half rally to defeat Midland University 70-66 in a men's college basketball exhibition game played Tuesday evening at Rice Auditorium in Wayne.

    Midland scored the opening four points of the game, but WSC held the lead for the remainder of the first half while building a 35-26 halftime advantage.

    A pair of Jacks free throws at the 7:55 mark of the first half gave the 'Cats their first double-digit lead of the night at 24-14. WSC led by as many as 13 in the first half at 29-16 following a Ben Hoskins 3-pointer. After Midland cut the lead to seven at 33-26, the Wildcats used a Matt Thomas layup on the final play of the first half for a 35-26 lead at intermission.

    Wayne State pushed the lead to 11 a couple of times early in the second half until Midland made a run and took the lead from the Wildcats.

    An Austin Esters layup gave WSC a 44-33 lead with 12:28 to play. Midland then went on a 14-2 run over the next 3:16 and took a 47-46 lead on a Diamontae McKinley layup with 9:12 remaining.

    The Warriors pushed their lead to five at 57-52 on an Alex Starkel layup at the 5:11 mark when WSC scored the following eight points to regain the lead for good.

    A three point play by Vance Janssen put the 'Cats in front 60-57 with 2:01 to play. Midland got as close as one at 60-59, but WSC sank 8-of-10 free throws down the stretch and got a key layup from Thomas with 38 seconds remaining to hang on for the 70-66 win.

    Wayne State ended the game making 21-of-49 shots for 42.9 percent including 6-of-17 behind the arc. The 'Cats were 22-of-29 at the free throw line including 14-of-16 in the second half.

    Kendal Jacks led WSC in scoring with 20 points followed by Vance Janssen and Jordan Cornelius with 10 apiece.

    Midland University was 24-of-49 from the floor (49%) and just 4-of-17 from 3-point range. The Warriors were 14-of-21 at the foul line. Damon Overton led the Warriors with a game-high 21 points followed by Diamontae McKinley (13), Alex Starkel (12) and Don Henderson (10).

    Midland out-rebounded WSC 35-27 thanks to 11 caroms from Henderson while Cornelius hauled in eight rebounds for Wayne State. Midland had 21 turnovers in the game to 14 on WSC. Janssen had four of Wayne State's 11 assists to go with two steals along with Cornelius.

    Wayne State will travel to Omaha Friday evening for a 7 p.m. exhibition game at Creighton University.

    Considering Midland was preseason #2 in the GPAC, this is actually a pretty decent win for the WSC men. It was good to see Jacks back on the floor after missing all of last year with injury. The defensive effort and organization was better throughout. Just one game, and a game that doesn't count, but I see the faintest glimmer of hope. There remain many obvious weaknesses and Wayne remains far from the top conference programs, but perhaps if things break right they can compete with the middle tier teams this year. If so, it would be a sign of progress.

    Creighton downs WSC 93-46 in men's exhibition game
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Creighton had five players score in double figures as the #22 and #23 ranked Bluejays downed Wayne State College 93-46 in a men's college basketball exhibition game played before a crowd of 15,128 at CenturyLink Center in Omaha. This was the lone exhibition game for the Bluejays while WSC is now 1-1 in exhibition games before opening the regular season next Friday evening, November 11th at Missouri Western.

    Creighton scored the first 13 points of the game while holding WSC scoreless until almost six minutes into the contest with tenacious defense against the Wildcats.

    A Tony Bonner layup at the 14:02 mark was Wayne State's first basket of the game after starting 0 for 6 from the field.

    The Wildcats then settled into the flow of the game and started making shots as Luke TerHark and Jordan Cornelius hit 3-pointers allowing WSC to pull within eight at 20-12 at the 10:55 mark of the first half.

    Creighton went on a 10-0 run over the next 1:52 to take a 30-12 lead and scored 16 consecutive points before the Wildcats ended the scoreless drought. Back-to-back 3-pointers from redshirt freshman Ben Hoskins snapped a 3:52 stretch without a point for the Wildcats, making the score 38-18.

    The Bluejays closed the first half with a 13-2 run over the final 5:54 to take a 51-20 lead at intermission.

    Wayne State battled the Bluejays close for the first segment of the second half as Creighton held a 16-14 scoring advantage at the second media timeout of the half. Junior guard Brian Goodwin scored eight straight points for the 'Cats on a trio of free throws, a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws to make the score 63-32 at the 15:08 mark.

    Freshman Joshua Lane and Cornelius hit back-to-back 3-pointers for WSC to make the score 75-40, but WSC was held scoreless for the next 5:32 until Bonner put in a basket on an offensive rebound for the Wildcats as Creighton went on to finish with the 93-46 win.

    Junior Jordan Cornelius led Wayne State in scoring with 13 points followed by Brian Goodwin and Tony Bonner with eight points each.

    Wayne State finished the game making 14 of 51 shots for 27.5 percent, going 8 for 29 behind the 3-point line and 10 of 19 (52.6 percent) at the free throw line.

    Marcus Foster led five Creighton players in double figures with 13 points. Khyri Thomas, Martin Krampelj and Maurice Watson Jr. each produced 11 points followed by Ronnie Harrell Jr. with 10.

    The Bluejays made 35 of 65 shots from the field for 53.8 percent, goiong 8 of 21 from the 3-point line and 15 for 22 (68.2%) at the charity stripe.

    Creighton held a commanding 52-23 advantage in rebounding on the Wildcats thanks to eight boards from Harrell Jr. while Kendall Jacks, JJ Zumbrennen and Bonner each hauled in four rebounds for the Wildcats.

    WSC had just 11 turnovers in the game compared to eight on Creighton

    Halley Busse plays just a few miles away from me. I talked to her after a game at Hector last season. I was hoping that she would go to MSU-Mankato. Outstanding high school player.

    WSC men open season with 70-57 road win at Missouri Western, snapping 17-game road losing skid
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Wayne State College used a game-high 16 points from junior guard Brian Goodwin to lead the Wildcats in a season opening 70-57 men's college basketball win Friday evening at Missouri Western in the 25th annual Hillyard Tip-Off Classic in St. Joseph, Missouri. The win snapped a 17-game road losing streak for the Wildcats dating back to January 30, 2015 (77-75 win at Mary) and gives WSC a 1-0 record while Missouri Western is 0-1.

    Missouri Western held a commanding 22-4 advantage on points in the paint over the Wildcats in the first half and held a 30-29 lead at intermission.

    The host Griffons took an early 8-2 lead, but Goodwin produced back-to-back treys to even the score at 8-8. After Missouri Western took an 18-12 lead for its biggest lead of the first half at the 7:43 mark, WSC battled back and took a 21-20 lead on a Tony Bonner layup with 4:43 remaining in the half.

    WSC held a pair of three point leads, but Missouri Western closed the half with the final four points for a 30-29 lead at halftime.

    The Wildcats opened the second half scoring nine straight points to take the lead for good. A Goodwin jumper, layups from Vance Janssen and Austin Esters and a Goodwin 3-pointer put WSC in front 38-30.

    After the Griffons closed to within two at 42-40 at the 12:47 mark, WSC reeled off the next nine points and took a 51-40 lead on a JJ Zumbrennen 3-pointer with 10:11 to play.

    The Griffons closed within seven at 51-44 but that is as close as the hosts would get as the Wildcats pushed the lead back to double figures for the final eight minutes to finish with the 70-57 win.

    Goodwin was the lone Wildcat in double figures with 16 points followed by Kendall Jacks, Matt Thomas and Austin Esters with nine apiece.

    WSC shot 26 of 63 from the field for 41.3 percent, including 8 for 23 behind the 3-point line. The Wildcats were just 10 for 19 at the free throw line.

    Cole Clearman paced Missouri Western with 15 points while Seth Bonifas and Beau Baker each reached double digits with 12 and 10 points respectively.

    Missouri Western was 24 of 56 from the floor for 42.9 percent. The Griffons were just 2 of 13 behind the arc and 7 of 11 at the charity stripe.

    WSC won the rebounding battle over Missouri Western 42-35 thanks to six rebounds each from Jordan Cornelius and Esters. The Wildcats had just eight turnovers in the game with 16 assists as Thomas handed out five and Jacks four to lead the 'Cats.

    Congrats to the Wildcats and especially to Brian Goodwin. Brian was mistakenly over-looked by the Minnesota NSIC schools and I glad to see him do well at Wayne. Brian's dad, Brad, was a Bemidji HS & BSU grad and played basketball for both the Lumberjacks and Beavers. Keep up the good work Brian!

    Larson's career-high 15 points off bench spark WSC women in 69-55 season-opening win over UNK
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Sophomore forward Andrea Larson ignited Wayne State off the bench with a career-high 15 points and the Wildcats held Nebraska-Kearney to just 28.8 percent shooting as the Wildcats downed the Lopers 69-56 in the women's college basketball opener for both teams Saturday evening at Rice Auditorium in Wayne. WSC, now 100-9 in Rice Auditorium over the last eight seasons, is 1-0 while UNK slips to 0-1.

    The Wildcats got off to a sluggish start, never holding a lead in the first quarter. WSC made just two baskets in the first quarter and trailed 12-4 with 1:19 left in the first quarter until the Wildcats got four straight free throws from junior Paige Ballinger to cut UNK's lead to 12-8 after one quarter.

    WSC and UNK went back and forth in the second quarter featuring six ties and 11 lead changes, but it was the play of Larson off the bench late in the second quarter that sparked the Wildcats to a 34-29 halftime lead.

    The Wildcats scored the first seven points of the second quarter and took their first lead of the game at 15-12 on a Haley Moore 3-pointer. UNK battled back and held a 26-24 lead at the 3:00 mark in the first half.

    Larson then took over for the Wildcats and eight points at the end of the half, including six in the final 1:59 to give Wayne State a 34-29 lead at intermission. Another key for WSC in the second quarter surge was 11 of 12 free throw shooting for the 'Cats.

    WSC pushed the lead to nine early in the third stanza on a Haley Moore trey, putting the 'Cats ahead 41-32 with 5:13 to play in the quarter. After UNK got within four at 41-37, WSC closed the quarter strong and used a Maggie Lowe 3-pointer to end the third quarter for a 49-40 Wildcat advantage.

    The Wildcats pushed the lead to 12 at 53-41 following an Anna Martensen layup. UNK got as close as seven at 53-46, but WSC answered with a Martensen layup and a Moore 3 to push the lead back to 12 (58-46) with just under five minutes to play and the Wildcats held off the Lopers with 9 of 12 free throw shooting in the fourth quarter to post the 69-56 win.

    Wayne State made 20 of 43 shots from the field for 46.5 percent, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range. The 'Cats were 25 for 30 (83.3 percent) at the free throw line.

    Maggie Schulte led three double digit scorers for Wayne State with 19 points and eight rebounds. Larson followed with an efficient 15-point night in just 14 minutes of playing time, going 6 for 10 from the field and 3 of 3 at the line. Junior center Paige Ballinger also hit double figures with 14 points.

    UNK shot just 28.8 percent from the field on 21 of 73 shots, going 5 for 28 behind the 3-point line. The Lopers were 9 of 16 at the foul line.

    Nieka Wheeler scored 17 points for UNK followed by Michaela Barry with 15.

    WSC held a 44-40 edge in rebounding over the Lopers thanks to eight caroms from Martensen and Schulte while Ballinger and Reiner grabbed six boards apiece. Wheeler had 11 for UNK.

    WSC had 20 turnovers in the game to just 11 for UNK. Moore handed out six of Wayne State's 12 assists in the game while Ballinger had three blocks with Schulte recording two.

    Wayne State will be at home again Sunday afternoon hosting Peru State in a 3 p.m. contest at Rice Auditorium.

    Wildcat women record sluggish 58-45 win over Rockhurst
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Wayne State needed a 19-6 third quarter to break open a close, sluggish game as the Wildcats held Rockhurst to just 25 percent shooting (16-of-63) in a 58-45 non-conference women's basketball win over the Hawks Friday evening at Rice Auditorium in Wayne. It was the 27th consecutive non-conference home win for the Wildcats, now 3-0 on the season, while Rockhurst drops to 2-1.

    Neither team could make a shot in the first quarter as the two teams played to an 8-8 tie after WSC made just 3 of 17 shots (17.6%) from the field while Rockhurst was 3 of 13 for 23 percent.

    WSC took a pair of five-point leads in the second quarter before finishing with a 21-20 lead at intermission.

    Maggie Schulte hit a 3-pointer and jumper on back-to-back possessions followed by an Anna Martensen layup that put WSC in front 16-11 with 6:51 remaining in the half. After Rockhurst scored the next five points to forge a 16-16 tie, WSC took another five-point lead at 21-16 following two Evelyn Knox free throws until the Hawks closed the gap to 21-20 at halftime.

    The turning point in the game came in the third quarter when WSC held Rockhurst without a point for just under seven minutes as the Wildcats took control of the game building a double-digit lead. The 'Cats defense held the Hawks to just 3 of 19 shooting (15.8%) in the third quarter.

    WSC held a 25-22 lead at the 8:42 mark of the third quarter and scored the next 11 points while holding the Hawks scoreless for 6:44 to take a commanding 36-22 lead. Haley Moore started the run with a 3-pointer followed by a pair of Martensen free throws and layup. Schulte and Paige Ballinger each added baskets to put the 'Cats up by 14.

    The Wildcats ended the third quarter with a 19-6 scoring advantage and held a 40-26 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

    WSC scored the opening five points of the fourth quarter to take their biggest lead of the game at 45-26 with 7:53 left in the game and maintained a double digit lead to finish with the 58-45 win.

    Wildcats battle #18 Augustana before falling 94-87 in OT in NSIC opener
    www.wscwildcats.com

    Wayne State battled #18 Augustana until going 0-for-6 from the field in overtime as the host Vikings rallied for a 94-87 win over the Wildcats Monday evening in the Northern Sun Conference opener for both teams played at the Sioux Falls Arena. WSC drops to 1-2 on the year and 0-1 in the league while Augustana is 4-1 and 1-0 in the NSIC.

    The Wildcats started quickly, taking an 8-3 lead on the Vikings. Augustana then went on a 13-3 run and took the lead from WSC at 16-11. The Vikings pushed their lead to double digits at 11 at 30-19 with 9:54 to go in the half following a John Warren 3-pointer.

    WSC then responded with nine of the next 10 points, highlighted by five points from redshirt freshman Luke TerHark that ended with a 3-pointer pulling the Wildcats within one at 40-39 with 2:32 left in the half. But Augustana finished the half strong and held a 48-44 lead at intermission.

    The start of the second half was a string of runs by both teams. WSC opened the half with the first eight points for a 52-48 lead. After WSC took a 59-51 lead on a Ben Hoskins 3-pointer, Augustana scored eight points in just 90 seconds to even the score at 59-59.

    With the score tied at 64-64, Wayne State went on a 13-4 run and took their biggest lead of the game at 77-68 on a Matt Thomas 3-pointer with 5:27 remaining.

    But Augustana charged back and got within three at 79-76 on a Levi Jansen trey with 4:05 to play.

    WSC maintained a lead until the final minute of regulation. The 'Cats still led 86-81 with 1:36 remaining following an Austin Esters layup. The Vikings, however, chipped away at the lead and tied the score at 86 on a Steven Schaefer three-point play with 54 seconds to play.

    The Wildcats missed a pair of shots in the final minute while Augustana missed one for a chance to win the game, sending the contest into overtime at 86-86.

    Nearly two minutes went by until the first team scored in overtime as Augustana's Adam Beyer scored a basket at the 3:02 mark of overtime to give the Vikings their first lead at 88-86 since 19:23 to play in the second half.

    Wayne State's first points of the overtime came with 2:46 left in extra time when Kendall Jacks made one of two free throws to get the 'Cats within two at 89-87. But that would be the lone point for the Wildcats in overtime as Wayne State goes 0 for 6 from the field and Augustana made free throws down the stretch for the 94-87 overtime win.

    WSC ended the night making 30-of-58 shots for 51.7 percent after spending most of the night shooting 60 percent. The 'Cats were 8-of-24 from the 3-point line and 19-of-27 at the free throw line.

    Junior Jordan Cornelius paced Wayne State in scoring with 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting. Kendall Jacks (15), Matt Thomas (11), and Luke TerHark (10) also hit double digits for the Wildcats.

    Augustana made 27-of-55 shots for 49 percent, going 10-of-22 from downtown and 30-of-46 at the free throw line. Jordan Spencer led the Vikings with 23 points followed by Mike Busack with 14 and Adam Beyer and Steven Schaefer with 10 apiece.

    The Vikings won the rebounding battle over WSC 38-27 with Beyer grabbing seven for Augustana while Jacks and Brian Goodwin each grabbed six boards for the Wildcats.

    WSC had five players foul out of the game and was called for 37 fouls compared to 26 on the Vikings. Augustana held a 22-3 advantage in second-chance points but WSC outscored the Vikings in the paint 34-22.

    If I remember correctly quite a few people on the board thought Kaminsky was the wrong man to hire for men's BB coach. It is looking like your AD picked the right man.

    www.wscwildcats.com

    West Texas A&M used 55 percent shooting and a 21-4 advantage in points off turnovers to defeat Wayne State College 92-74 Friday afternoon at the Pak A Sak Thanksgiving Men's Basketball Classic in Canyon, Texas. The host Buffs improve to 7-1 on the year while WSC drops to 1-3.

    Despite Wayne State shooting 65 percent (13 of 20) from the field in the first half, the Wildcats trailed 46-35 at intermission due to 13 first-half turnovers that resulted in 19 points for the Buffs.

    Wayne State never led in the contest. The Wildcats were down 10-8 early in the game, but West Texas A&M used a 15-2 run over the next 5:45 to take a 25-10 advantage with 11:20 to play first half.

    The Wildcats got within six at 30-24 following a Ben Hoskins 3-pointer with 6:59 remaining in the half, but the host Buffs pushed the lead up to 13 several times before finishing with a 46-35 halftime lead.

    WSC stayed within reach of the Buffs for the first part of the second half until West Texas A&M put the game out of reach making 8 of 9 field goals late in the half to push the lead over 20 points.

    The Wildcats cut the lead to single digits on a couple of occasions. An Austin Esters layup got WSC within nine at 55-46 at the 15:45 mark. WSC was still within 10 at 66-56 thanks to a Jordan Cornelius 3-pointer with 9:58 remaining. But the Buffs made eight of their next nine shots to increase their lead to 21 points and finished with the 92-74 win.

    Wayne State shot a season-high 52.3 percent making 23 of 44 shots. The 'Cats were 6 of 17 behind the arc and a season-best 84.6 percent from the foul line making 22 of 26.

    Junior guard Matt Thomas led WSC with 20 points on 6 of 9 shooting from the field and 6 for 7 at the stripe. Sophomore Kendall Jacks added 14 points for the Wildcats.

    West Texas A&M shot 55.4 percent making 31 of 56 shots, including 9 for 24 from 3-point range. The Buffs were 21 of 30 at the free throw line.

    David Chavlovich poured in a game-high 21 points for the Buffs with Joseph Prince and Eric Golightly Jr. also reaching double figures with 19 and 13 respectively.

    The Buffs out-rebounded the Wildcats 31-24 with Kendall Jacks leading WSC on the glass with five rebounds. Vance Janssen, Thomas and Cornelius each had three assists for the 'Cats while Jacks posted two blocked shots.

    West Texas A&M held a 21-4 advantage on points off turnovers, 40-26 points in the paint and 12-2 second chance points.

    Wayne State will play another game Saturday afternoon at the Pak A Sak Thanksgiving Classic, facing Eastern New Mexico in a 12 p.m. contest.
