The Benedictine men's basketball team saw its four-game win streak come to a halt Wednesday evening, losing to Wisconsin Lutheran College, 82-73, at the Rice Center. The Eagles fell to 8-6 overall and 3-3 in the Northern Athletics Conference. Benedictine trailed in a close game at halftime, 36-34, but found itself buried under the combination of a barrage of second half free throws and three-point shooting by the Warriors. WLC connected on 19-of-22 from the free throw stripe in the second half and was 23-of-26 from the charity line for the game, while burying 13-of-27 treys. The Eagles hit 3-of-4 free throws for the game. BU also made good on 6-of-22 from beyond the arc. Four Eagles finished in double figures, led by A.J. Brown's 18 points. Brown hit 9-of-14 from the floor and also grabbed six rebounds. Jared Bailey added 17 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Cameron Snelling had a double-double with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Dan Klecan narrowly missed a double-double by scoring 12 points and grabbing nine boards.
