Luther was defeated by Central 84-82 tonight in the Pella. It was the conference opener for both teams. It was also a classic shoot out as the Norse shot 54.5 percent and the Dutch connected on 52.5 percent of their attempts.
John Androus recorded a double-double with 26 points and 11 rebounds. His 26-point effort match a career high he established against Northwestern (MN) earlier this season.
Central was led by Kevin Kaerwer with 26 and Matt Greenfield with 16.
The loss snapped a four-game win streak and gives the Norse an overall record of 8-4.
Luther returns to action at home on Saturday when it will host Wartburg College at 4:00 p.m.
