The men’s basketball team lost against Dordt on Wednesday with a score of 76-69.
Junior Gage Smith continues to lead the Bulldogs with 12 rebounds and finished with 19 points. Junior Carter Kent had 16 points and junior Justin Wiersmar had 10. The first half of the game was a sluggish start in their first outline since Jan. 23.
“We looked like a team that had 10 days off,” said Coach Limback. “I felt like we were ready to play, but it certainly didn’t look like it.”
Although the first half of the game was rough for the Bulldogs, Smith’s energy and Kent’s comebacks were an infection for the team.
“We played a very poor first half. We’ll bounce back,” Limback said. “We could be in a position like this on the road in the conference tournament so we’re going to have to be better than we were tonight. I loved our fight in the second half.”
The men’s basketball team has a continuous streak of playing well at home and will be able to prove that against Dakota Wesleyan on Saturday. The Bulldogs will play at Friedrich arena at 6 p.m. and are ready to come out strong.
All fans and spectators are asked to mask up while in the arena and continue practicing social distancing throughout the games.
