Luther wrapped up its non-conference schedule with a 73-65 victory over Austin College in Sherman, Texas this afternoon. The Norse victory increased their overall record to 9-2, 6-2 against non-conference opponents.
The Norse trailed by as many as eight points in the first half, but put together a 15-4 run in final eight minutes and held a 27-24 lead at halftime. Austin College took a one-point lead briefly early in the second half, only to see Luther regain the lead with a little under 18 minutes left in the game and never trailed the rest of the way.
Dane Larson led a trio of double digit scorers with 14 points. John Androus and Tim Merritt both chipped in 11. Tyler Wedemeier and Michael Crocker were one-point shy with nine each. Androus led all rebounders with nine.
The Norse will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 7, when they will host the Beavers of Buena Vista University at 4:00 p.m. The game will be video streamed and will also be broadcast live by KCRG TV 9.2.
