lost to Concordia Unive (Ore.) 85-70)

- Concordia went 1-1 at the Pacific Lutheran Tournament over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Cobbers beat the host Lutes 84-79 on Friday but then dropped an 85-70 decision to Concordia Univ. (Ore.) on Saturday. Sophomore John Fraase (Bismarck, N.D./Century HS) had 14 points in each game and collected a career-high 17 rebounds against Pacific Lutheran. For his efforts he was named to the All-Tournament Team.
