Jared Bailey's 18 points and 11 rebound game propelled the Benedictine University men's basketball team to a 63-60 Northern Athletics Conference win at Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Eagles improved to 3-3 overall. Bailey also led his team with five assists and five steals in his 39 minutes of play. Dan Klecan added 10 points and Aaron Brown tossed in eight as Benedictine's other top scorers. Brown and Cameron Snelling had five and six rebounds, respectively. Benedictine led by 10 points at the half, 33-23, only to see MSOE claw back and actually go up by ten itself in the second stanza. Behind Bailey the Eagles regained the upped hand. The junior's steal and layup with just over one minute left in the game put BU on top to stay.
