Men's BB Team Looks To Rebound Against Cardinals Monday

Victor Easter

Hamline's men's basketball team looks to rebound on the winning track on Monday, December 3 when they welcome St. Mary's to Hutton Arena. It's the continuation of a busy start to the league slate that sees HU plays 25 per cent of its schedule -- four games -- in an eight day period. Hamline (3-2 overall, 1-1 MIAC) plays at Augsburg Wednesday, December 5.

Both games are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tipoffs.

HU played league co-leader St. Thomas toe-to-toe for the first 23 minutes of last Saturday's game, holding the visitors to a 33-all tie. UST then ran off 15 points in a row to go on to a 80-59 win that was, in all reality, a much better game that the final score indicated. Tyler Pannell led the Piper offense with 14 points, including a pair of three-pointers that gave him 100 for his career here. He is just the fifth Piper to hit that mark. Victor Easter (pictured) added 11 points and four assists.

The Cardinals (0-4, 0-1) had Saturday off. They lost, 80-62, to St. Olaf at home last Wednesday.
