Men's Basketball - Buena Vista University
|Date:||February 15, 2012|
|Location:||Storm Lake, Iowa|
Buena Vista handed Luther its worst loss of the season, a 67-49 decision in Siebens Fieldhouse.
The loss puts Luther in a must win situation Saturday at Coe in order to claim a share of the 2012 Iowa Conference title. A Coe victory would secure the outright title.
Tonight, Coe defeated Wartburg 67-55 and sits alone atop the league standings with a mark of 11-4. Dubuque (11-5) finished its season with an impressive 73-39 victory over Cornell. Buena Vista (10-5) also moved into title contention with tonight's win. The Beavers travel to Cornell on Saturday. If Luther (10-5) defeats Coe and Buena Vista defeats Cornell, there would be a four-way tie for first place.
Buena Vista was led by Wes Nordquist who poured in a game high 22. Nordquist missed just four shots from the field and was 8-of-9 from the charity stripe. Jess Janssen added 12 and Doub Bissen, who collected a game high 13 rebounds, chipped in nine points.
Tip-off in Cedar Rapids on Saturday is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
