With a solid win over Indiana Tech, Cornerstone University now prepares to face cross-town rival Davenport University in the semifinals of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) Tournament.
On Thursday night, fourth-seeded Cornerstone hosted the fifth-seeded Warriors of Indiana Tech in the first round of the WHAC Tournament. After a slow start, neither team had control of the game until freshman Omari Lewis took command with a steal and thunderous dunk which ignited the stands of Cornerstone's Mol Arena. The Golden Eagles then went into the half leading 32-27. That momentum carried over into the second half as junior star Wes Hudson took the reins to lead the team to a 74-58 victory.
The win propels Cornerstone into Saturday's WHAC semifinals where they will take on top-seeded Davenport University. Cornerstone will have their hands full as they look to extend their current six-game win streak. Davenport won both of the regular season matchups between the two rivals, with each game going down to the wire. Saturday's game is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Davenport University Student Center.
As added intrigue to the showdown, Cornerstone coach Kim Elders will be gunning for his 500th career coaching victory at CU. Saturday's winner earns a berth in Monday's finals.
