The Tigers continued their poor performances at Cornerstone University as the Eagles notched another home win. “It was something like 11-0 and we hadn’t even taken a shot” said Coach Gary Bailey. “We were not ready to play and we knew it. They came out and set us back on our heels right away and we never recovered.” The Tigers did mount a charge midway through the second half. Down 25, the Tigers cut it to 12 but could get no closer.
Allen Durham led Grace with 16 and 7 rebounds. Matt Kurtz added 10 points and a team high 3 assists. Ryan Krombeen also had 7 rebounds to go along with 9 points.
The Tigers had 25 turnovers compared to 12 for the Eagles. Grace shot 44% for the game and Cornerstone 43%. Grace was a horrible 3 for 21 from behind the arc.
Grace will take on Davenport University on Monday and then hosts Cornerstone for a rematch.
