This put them in the lead at 22-7 by the first quarter. Then Cornerstone caught up, but that did not stop the Saints with a 28-17 lead. The Saints crushed Cornerstone at the end with a final score of 73-37.

Next, they head to the WHAC Conference tournament on Thursday, Feb. 27 to play Concordia University.

The men had a tough season this year. They played with a lot of speed when they faced Cornerstone University.  They had their strengths and weaknesses and fought hard to finish up the game.

Although they had an epic win against UNOH on Wednesday, Feb. 19, they ended the season with a tough loss against Indiana Tech with a 10-20 running season.
