MU falls to UC

As expected, sans Travis Diener the Warriors fell last night to Cincinnati, 80-68. Cincinnati was predictably tough around the basket where Hicks and Maxiell combined for 31 points and 19 rebounds. MU displayed considerable gumption throughout, closing the gap late. Interestingly, MU out rebounded UC overall and claimed 18 offensive rebounds while turning the ball over only 13 times. In fact, freshman walk-on Brian Hanley played 11 solid minutes and committed no turnovers. Steve Novak led MU with 25 points, while Dameon Mason delivered 17 points and eight rebounds.

MU closes the season with a pair of home games, Houston and St. Louis.
