Cobbers Scratch and Claw, But Can't Get Over the Hump and Lose to Macalester.

(St. Paul, Minn)-- Concordia scratched, climbed, crawled their way back into their MIAC Semifinal game with Macalester, but could never get over the final hump and lost 79-65. The Cobbers tied the game midway through the second half, and then watched as the Scots went on a 16-7 run in the next seven minutes to pull away and finish with the 14-point victory.

The loss ends Concordia's season with an overall record of 18, the third best season in school history. The Cobbers reached the semifinals of the conference tournament for only the fifth time in the 20-year history of the event. Macalester advances to the championship game where they will face Gustavus on Saturday, February 28 at 7:30pm in St. Peter.

Concordia was uncharacteristically cold from the floor in the first half. The Cobbers shot a frigid 27.3% (6-for-22) from the field, and dug themselves a 20-6 hole in the first eight minutes of the game. They were able to pull back to within six points at the break as Josh Downey (Sr., Bigfork, Mont.) and Keith Eckhoff (So., Alexandria, Minn./Jefferson HS) hit on a pair of 3-point baskets to push the Cobbers within striking distance. Macalester hit on seven of their first ten shots in the game, and Chris Assel was able to knock down a pair of 3-point shots to stake the Scots to the early lead.

In the second half, Concordia quickly close the six-point gap and tied the game on a 3-point bomb from Downey with 17:05 left to go in the game. Macalester scored the next seven points only to see that lead be eaten up by a seven-point run from Concordia that was capped off by a 3-point shot from the left corner from Ryan Templeton (So., Minot, ND).

From that point on, Macalester was able slowly pull away and keep Concordia from mounting another comeback. The closest the Cobbers were able to come in the final seven minutes was six points when Eckhoff hit a 3-pointer with 2:57 remaining to cut the lead to 66-60. The Scots protected the lead in the final stages of the game by hitting on 11-of-12 free throws in the final two minutes.

Downey led the Cobber scoring attack by scoring 20 points and connecting on a trio of 3-point shots. Eckhoff added 19 points and was 3-of-4 from behind the arc. Soren Nelson (Jr., Twin Valley, Minn./Norman County East HS) struggled to find his shooting touch, going 4-of-11 from the floor and finishing with 11 points.

Adam Denny stepped out from the shadows of teammate, and leading MIAC MVP candidate, Ben Van Thorre, to score a team-high 17 points and grab 14 rebounds for Macalester. Denny, a 56% shooter from the floor and 49% from the free throw line entering the game, hit on 6-of-7 shots from the floor and 5-of-6 from the foul line. Van Thorre was limited to only 24 minutes of playing time due to foul trouble and finished with eight points and three rebounds. It is the first time in nine games against the Cobbers that he has failed to score in double figures. Erik Jackson and Brendan Bosman each added 14 points. Chris Assel made three 3-point field goals and finished with 13 points. Wes McFarland added 10 points to put five Scot players in double figures.

Concordia was outrebounded in the game 35-27, and the Scots held a decisive 20-11 edge in second chance points. For the game, the Cobbers shot 37.7% (20-for-53) from the field, which is well below their season average of  50.2%. Macalester shot 45.3% (24-for-53) from the floor and 85.7% (24-for-28) from the free throw line.

The Cobbers finish their season after placing third in the MIAC with a record of 14-6. The team's final win total of 18, is tied for the third highest number of wins in a season.
