The Brescia men's basketball team hosted the #2 ranked IU Southeast Grenadiers on Tuesday night in The Den in a KIAC matchup. From the beginning, IUS controlled the tempo of the game. The Grenadiers ran and ran full speed throughout the first half. The Bearcats were able to make shots when presented, but the pressure defense of IUS and the lack of offensive rebounding by the Bearcats would lead to a 59-40 halftime lead. The second half was more of the same as the Bearcats just could not run with the Grenadiers and IUS goes on to win 104-77. The loss snaps Brescia's six game winning streak.
Leading the way for the Bearcats was Austin Morris with 19 points and 9 rebounds. Hunter Rowe and Decarlos Collier each had 14 points while Jermain Langley chipped in 11 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.
Brescia falls to (14-9) (8-5 KIAC on the season). The Bearcats next play on Friday when they host Cincinnati Christian in The Den at 7pm. This game will honor the two Brescia seniors, Hunter Rowe and Brett Jackson.
