Brescia University's Men's Basketball team hosted the Eagles from Asbury on Tuesday night for a must win game for the Bearcats. "We have been playing tournament basketball ever since we started at 0-6." (Coach Skortz)
The Bearcats would fight in the first half to take a four-point lead into the locker room at the half way point of the game. But Asbury would respond in the second half keeping the game tight. With no team extending to a big lead, it would be a force of will as to who would come out on top. With a great defensive effort, the Bearcats would hold the highest scoring team in the NAIA to just 85 points. That's 14 points below their season average.
Brescia would finish strong and take the must-win game 91-85. Brescia climbs back into contention with the win and improves their RSC record to 7-7 and puts them in a three-way tie for third place in the west division.
The Bearcats are back in action this Saturday when the face Alice Lloyd, tipoff is set for 3:00 p.m. CST
