The Benedictine men's basketball team did not have an answer to the up-tempo Wisconsin Lutheran College squad, dropping a Northern Athletics Conference road game, 93-75. The Eagles fell to 6-11 overall and 5-5 in the NAC. Freshmen Cameron Snelling and Brian Genslinger led the Benedictine team, both coming off the Eagles' bench. Snelling had a team-leading 21 points and shared rebound honors with Genslinger at six caroms apiece. Genslinger tallied 15 points. Jared Bailey and Tim Swanson added 13 and 10 points, respectively. Bailey was five-of-seven from the field. As a team, Benedictine shot 54 percent (29-54) from the field. However, the Warriors took nine more field goal attempts (two more made) and also hit seven more three-pointers (13 to six) than the Eagles.
