The loss keeps the Eagles (11-11, 9-6) on the bubble for the six-team NAC post-season tournament (with two games remaining), while the Warriors (13-10, 10-6) solidified their chances to qualify for the event, as well. WLC had a quartet of players in double figures, led by 23 points from Brian Hagel. Hagel was eight-for-16 from the field and made good on five-of-10 from beyond the arc. He also had eight rebounds. Danny Behm added 13 points and Christian Lindberg chipped in 12. Marcus Zontag had a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds, rounding out the Warriors' top scorers. Every BU starter scored in double digits, but it wasn't enough. Dan Klecan and Travis Wilson each booked 13 points, while Rob Bridgeman and Stephon Alford - making his first collegiate start - had 12 apiece. Jacob Carwell's 10 points rounded out the Eagles' double-digit scorers. Wilson and Alford had eight and seven rebounds, respectively, to lead the BU team in that statistic.
