MILWAUKEE – The MSOE men's basketball team posted one of the top shooting games in school history in breezing past Dominican 92-63 Saturday afternoon at the Kern Center.
The Raiders (11-11, 10-8 NACC) shot a blistering 66 percent in the game and 64.3 percent from three-point range in overwhelming the visiting Stars (11-12, 8-10 NACC).
Senior Collin Seubert led three players in double-figures in the game with 14 points to go with eight rebounds. Junior Tegan Miles scored 12 points on a tidy 5-of-7 shooting and junior Nolan Henton added 10. Five more players scored at least seven points for MSOE.
Tim Robertson led the visitors with 15 points and Josh Mayberry scored 13.
The Raiders shot over 70 percent in the first half in taking a commanding 20-point lead at halftime. They led by as many as 23 in the period as they limited DU to just 37.9 percent shooting.
MSOE used several key runs to pull away from the Stars. In the first half, the visitors had just pulled within one at 11-10 when the Raiders went on a 12-2 run and, for all intents and purposes, never looked back. In the second half, it was a nine-point run that pushed the lead to 23 with a 12-0 run making it 70-41 late in the second half.
A layup by freshman Travis Ballard with 17 seconds remaining in the game provided the game's largest lead at 92-60.
MSOE's shooting percentage is second in school history, trailing only the 68 percent it shot at Beloit Dec. 14, 2014. Its three-point percentage is the third-best in team history in games with a minimum of eight made three's.
The Raiders close out the regular season with a pair of road games next week, beginning at Marian Tuesday.
