Luther and Buena Vista are tied for the conference lead at 9-3 with two games remaining on the regular season schedule, after the Beavers defeated the Norse 70-41 in Siebens Fieldhouse.
Luther had a difficult night shooting the basketball connecting on 27 percent (17-62) that included a 1-for-12 effort from three-point land.
Tyler Wedemeier and Buena Vista's Wes Nordquist proved why they are considered the best big men in the league, as both produced double-doubles. Wedemeier tallied 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Nordquist scored a game high 21 and collected 10 boards.
