GAME FLOW

The No. 18 Cornerstone men's basketball team traveled to Dearborn, Mich., on Thursday evening to face the Wolverines from UM-Dearborn.  The game was the Golden Eagles' seventh WHAC game of the 2013-14 season.  Last year, the two teams met twice with Cornerstone winning both contests.  Tonight the Golden Eagles continued their unbeaten record against the Wolverines after an 81-54 final.  CU now holds an overall 21-0 record in the series.  After the victory, Cornerstone improves to 11-2 overall and 6-1 in WHAC play.  UM-Dearborn falls to 2-10 overall and 1-6 in league games.   

During the first half, the Wolverines took an early four point lead (6-2) after UMD's Marcus Tilmon-Cornet sunk a three point shot just two minutes into the game.  CU would pull ahead by one after a two point shot made by Alex Lyle with 14:52 left until half.  The Wolverines would tie the game one more time but after Justin Pepper second chance layup, the Golden Eagles held the advantage throughout the remainder of the game.  Cornerstone's largest lead would come just before the half, 27-17, as Wes Hudson had an easy two pointer after a Dearborn turnover. 

The Golden Eagles would maintain momentum after the break and would tally their largest lead of the night by 30 points with just two minutes remaining.  Cornerstone would finish the game shooting 47.4% while holding their opponent to a 35.2 shot percentage.  As a team, the Golden Eagles dished out 11 assists, had nine blocks, 13 steals and 38 total rebounds.  Cornerstone's Jake Plite led the Golden Eagles with 16 points while Ben Lanning followed closely behind with 14 points.  Wes Hudson and Travis Wells scored 11 points respectively as well.  Lanning grabbed the game-high nine rebounds while notching seven blocks during the night. 

 

UP NEXT

The No. 18 Golden Eagles will take a break from conference competition and travel to non-conference NCAA Division II opponent, Ferris State University, on Saturday, Dec. 21.  Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.  The Bulldogs are coached by former Cornerstone basketball standout, Andy Bronkema.
