The Golden Eagles led from start to finish today as they defeated Aquinas 51-44. It was a pretty game by either team with Aquinas making just 16 of 53 shots (30.2%) while Cornerstone made 17 of 57 ((29.8%) from the floor. Cornerstone jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 15:10 on the clock. Aquinas made an 8-1 run over the next two minute to draw to within 1 at 9-8. The game remained close until the end of the first half when the Golden Eagles made a 10-2 run to open up a 26-17 lead at the half. Cornerstone pushed the lead up to 16 (33-17) four minutes into the second half and that would be their largest lead of the game. Aquinas briefly got the lead back to single digits but Cornerstone maintained a pretty comfortable lead throughout the remainder of the half. Aquinas made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to finish the game down 7 with a final score of 51-44.
Cornerstone will travel to Ann Arbor to play Concordia at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
