01/22/2012 – The men's basketball team was defeated on the road by the count of 46-45 in their first trip to Lourdes University. The victory extends Lourdes' winning streak to five and improved their record to 12-10 overall and to 6-5 in the WHAC. With the loss the Saints fell to 6-4 in the league and to 10-12 on the season.
Aquinas, who built an eight point halftime lead, fell victim to turnovers (22 on the game) and poor second half shooting (29%), as the host Wolves scrapped together the one point victory. The Saints had a chance as time expired, but a last chance opportunity by Zach Eddy went array. Aquinas was led by the duo of Joe Powers and Jake Shockey who scored 14 and 12 respectively.
The Saints will return to action on Wednesday with a home contest versus Northwestern Ohio (5-15, 1-9 WHAC) at 7:30 p.m.
