Robb Flint (Jr., Dilworth, MN) drives to the basket late in Concordia's thrilling 79-78 victory over Carleton. 

2/3 Concordia Wins Thriller Over Carleton 79-78.
Joe Snowden's (Sr., St. Paul, MN) free throw to complete a three-point play with :07 left on the clock finally gave Concordia a lead they would not relinquish, as they downed Carleton 79-78.

The Cobbers led throughout the most of the game before the Knights rallied to take the lead at 65-64 with 6:01 remaining in the second half. Carleton (5-10, 7-12) pushed it to a five-point advantage with just over one minute to play, but then the Concordia (8-6, 11-7) back court took control. Robb Flint (Jr., Dilworth, MN) drove hard to the basket and was fouled, his two made free throws cut the lead to 76-74. The Cobbers fouled on the inbound play and Steve Knutson was only able to convert on one of his two free throws. After the teams traded turnovers Flint stole the ball and made a lay-up with :22 seconds left and the Cobbers trailing 77-76. Once again Concordia fouled, and once again the Knights  made only one of the free throws. That set the stage for Flint's backcourt partner Snowden to step up and win the game. He drove, was fouled by Steve Knutson and made the follow-up free throw to give the Cobbers a 79-78 lead. After calling timeout, Carleton had one last good look at the basket but Scott Christensen's shot at the buzzer hit off the rim and bounded helplessly into the air.

Concordia was led by Snowden who finished with a game-high 23 points.
Robb Flint continued to cause havoc for the opposing team and added 10 points and five assists. Kermit Cooper (Sr., Freeport, BAH) had  an imposing dunk in the first, and scored 15 points on the day.

Concordia remains at home to take on league leading Gustavus on Monday at 7:00.

Concordia vs. Carleton Game Day Preview

The Headline: Concordia Confronts Carleton

The Teams:
Concordia (7-6 in the MIAC, 10-7 Overall)
Concordia is in the middle of a stretch of playing four games in seven days. Thanks to last week's ice storm, the Cobbers had to make-up the game against St. Olaf on Thursday. After today, the team will play Gustavus on Monday and then travel to St. Thomas to take on the Tommies on Wednesday. The four-game string will determine if the Cobbers can make a final run at the playoffs. This year the top six teams make MIAC post-season play, and currently Concordia is sitting in the sixth and final spot. They are 1 1/2 games in front of Macalester, and 1 1/2 games behind St. Thomas for the fifth slot. In the win over St. Olaf , the Cobber bench outscored St. Olaf's non-starters 28-11. Trent Hagen finished with a season-high 13 and Kermit Cooper added 10.

Carleton (5-9 in the MIAC, 7-11 Overall)
Carleton has won three of their last four games. This resurgence can be traced to the return of first year player Tanner Schiek to the line-up. In the Knight's 66-65 upset win over Augsburg, Schiek hit the winning lay up with three seconds left in the game. It was Schieck's first game back after a broken foot sidelined the first-year center for almost eight weeks. Ironically, it was in warm-ups against Augsburg in the first game that Schiek broke his foot. The Knights are led by the tandem of  Jeff Jensen and Steve Nuessle. They are both averaging 14 ppg.

The Probable Starting Lineups:
Concordia:
No Name          Pos Yr  Ht   Wt  Hometown
12 Robb Flint      G Jr. 5-10 160 Dilworth MN
14 Joe Snowden     G Sr. 6-0  175 St. Paul MN
40 Mike Syverson   F Jr. 6-3  170 Twin Valley MN
44 Chris Thomas    F So. 6-3  175 Sioux Falls SD
50 Jeff Ubben      C Jr. 6-8  200 Moorhead MN
Carleton:
No Name              Yr  Pos Ht. Hometown
11 Scott Christensen So.   G 6-1 Northfield, MN
13 Jeff Jensen       Sr.   F 6-4 Billings, MT
33 Tanner Schieck    Fy.   C 6-7 Austin, MN
43 Steve Knutson     Sr.   F 6-4 Eden Prairie, MN
55 Steve Nuessle     Jr.   F 6-4 Bloomington, MN

The Key Statistic: Scoring
The two teams are last in the MIAC in scoring average. The Cobbers are averaging 64 ppg, while the Knights average 67 ppg. Last time the two teams met, they finished below the averages playing to a 62-61 ending. The magic number for Concordia is 67. When the Cobbers score over 67 points, they are 4-0 in league play. When they score under 67, they are a mediocre 3-6. For Carleton, the magic number is 76. The Knights are 4-2 when they hold their opponents under 76 points, but a horrid 1-7 when their defense goes south and gives up more than 76.

The Key Match-Up: Joe Snowden - CC vs. Jeff Jensen - Carl
Today's game will feature a battle of top perimeter players. Joe Snowden, despite drawing the opponent's best defender, continues to lead the Cobbers with a 16.9 ppg average. He takes the most shots for Concordia and leads the team in 3-pont FG%. He remains among the leaders in both categories. Jensen is Carleton's go-to player, as he was given the opportunity to win the first game between the two teams in the waning seconds. He missed a shot with one second left on the clock, and the Cobbers held on for the 62-61 victory.

The History: Carleton leads the Series 21-17.
Carleton has won five of the last seven match-ups. Last year the two teams split the series with each team winning at home. Concordia won the first game 67-65 in Moorhead, and Carleton returned the favor winning 65-63 in Northfield. The closest game in the history of the series came in the inaugural game. In 1933 Carleton eked out a 25-24 win. Frank Cleve was the Cobbers coach in that historic meeting. Returning lettermen for the 1933-1934 season were Captain Pat Hilde, Shorty Malvey, Earl Moran, Eddie Romuld, Eddie Dahl, Goody Erickson and Ralph Miller. Frank Cleve has the distinction of being the only coach in Concordia men's basketball history to have a winning record.
