Luther leveled its overall record to 4-4 thanks to an 86-79 victory over Cornell College this afternoon in the Regents Center. The Norse fell behind 6-0 but finished the first half leading 38-25 and never trailed the rest of the game.
The Norse shot 47.6% that included a 16-of-39 effort from behind the three-point line. The 16 treys matched the single game school record that was set against Central College, Nov. 29, 2017.
Defensively, Luther held the Rams to 38.7% that included a 6-of-25 performance from behind the arch. TJ Conner led the team with 19 points, followed by Michael Drew with 13 and Jan Siegien with 12.
Luther is off until Dec. 29-30 when it will play in the Naples Florida Shootout. The Norse will face Suffolk University (MA) on the 29th at noon, and Connecticut College on the 30th at 2:00 p.m. Both times are eastern standard time.
