Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures - Gameday Program(word)
MOORHEAD-- With 10 minutes to go in the game, Concordia led by 17 and everything seemed to be in place for the Cobbers to cruise to their fifth straight home victory. In the next seven minutes, St. Mary's crawled their way out of the abyss of a double-digit loss and cut the lead to four points with 2:54 left to play. Concordia then rallied to outscore the Cardinals 6-0 in the ensuing two minutes and hung on for an 84-79 win. 

The victory pushes Concordia into a three-way tie for fourth place in the MIAC. The Cobbers are now 6-5 in league play and an even 8-8 overall. Concordia will play two more games in the next three days as they cap a string of four games in seven days. The ever-improving Cardinals have their one-game win streak halted and drop to 2-9 in the conference and 3-13 overall.(More

Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures - Gameday Program (word)
MOORHEAD-- On Monday, Concordia rode the coattails of Keith Eckhoff (Jr., Alexandria, Minn.) to stay close with league-leading St. Thomas. On Wednesday at home against Hamline, the Cobbers created a four-headed monster that helped the Cobbers prey on the Pipers, winning 74-57.

The victory closes out the first half of the MIAC season for the Cobbers. Concordia jumps into a three-way tie for fifth place in the conference with a 5-5 mark.

Eckhoff Puts On 3-Point Shooting Clinic But Cobbers Still Fall to First-Place Tommies 94-80.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
ST. PAUL-- It is becoming more and more commonplace for Cobber guard Keith Eckhoff (Jr., Alexandria, Minn.) to put on a shooting clinic from anywhere on the floor. The junior has meteorically risen to the top of the MIAC with his ability to hit jump shots from anywhere on the floor. Coming into the season, Eckhoff was averaging 11.6 points per game and had only scored more than 20 points in a single game on one occasion. So far in 2004-05, he is averaging 22.3 points per game and has compiled four games in which he has scored over 30 points. 

The latest Eckhoff tutorial came on Monday night. The long-range gunner exploded for 36 points and was 9-of-11 from 3-point range. He finished the game by shooting 65.0% (13-of-20) from the floor and also added team-highs in assists (5) and rebounds (4). Despite Eckhoff's surgical touch from the outside, the Cobbers were unable to out-slug league-leading St. Thomas and fell 94-80.(More)

Cobbers Soren Past Bethel; Nelson's Career-High Paces Cobbers Over Royals. 
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures - Gameday Program (word)
MOORHEAD-- Concordia senior Soren Nelson (Twin Valley, Minn.) scored a career-high 32 points to help the Cobbers past Bethel 83-82 and into a four-way tie for fourth place in the MIAC. The game featured two of the leagues' top three scorers in Keith Eckhoff (Jr., Alexandria, Minn.) and Tim Gilbert, but it was Nelson who stole the show and lit up the Royal defense for 20 points in the second half and carried Concordia to their sixth win of the season. 

The Cobbers climb to 4-4 in conference play and 6-7 overall. More importantly, the win over Bethel drops the Royals into the logjam in fourth place with a 4-4 mark in the MIAC. Bethel has now lost three straight games and sees their overall mark dip to 9-4.

Besides scoring his career-high in points, Nelson also grabbed 10 rebounds to collect his third double-double of his collegiate career and first since January 28 of 2004 when he scored 11 points and hauled down 11 rebounds in a game at St. John's. To complete Nelson's statistical line for the night he also had two blocked shots and had a steal. He went 11-of-18 from the floor and 3-of-4 from shots behind the arc.(More)

Cobbers Have No Magic Left in the Bag and Fall on the Road at Augsburg 76-73. 
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
MINNEAPOLIS-- For the second straight conference game Concordia tried to reach into their bag of last-second magic and cast a spell for a win. Unfortunately for the Cobbers, the bag was empty and Keith Eckhoff's 3-point shot in the waning seconds rattled off the rim instead of dropping down for the game-tying basket.

With the loss, Concordia drops out of a three-way tie for fifth place in the MIAC. The Cobbers are now 3-4 in the league and 5-7 overall. Augsburg vaults ahead of Concordia and climbs to 4-3 in the MIAC and 6-6 overall.(More

Keith Eckhoff Named MIAC Player of the Week.
Concordia junior guard Keith Eckhoff (Alexandria, Minn./Jefferson HS) was named the MIAC Player of the Week for his three-game performance against Macalester, Carleton and North Dakota State University last week.

Eckhoff averaged 27.0 points per game in the Cobbers three games last week. His biggest contribution to Concordia's two league wins was against Carleton where he scored 36 points and hit the game-winning shot at the buzzer in overtime. 

For the week, Concordia went 2-1 with their only loss coming to NCAA Division I opponent North Dakota State University. Eckhoff led the Cobbers to a pair of league wins which places the team right back in the MIAC playoff hunt. 

Eckhoff had game-high point totals in all three of the Cobbers' games during the week. On Monday, in Concordia's 77-68 win, Eckhoff scored 26 points and was 12-of-13 from the free throw line. In Wednesday's overtime thriller against the Knights, Eckhoff scored 36 points - including 15 of the team's 17 points in overtime. For the game he was 11-of-17 from the field, 5-of-6 from 3-point range and 9-of-10 from the free throw line. On Saturday against NDSU, Eckhoff scored 19 points. 

His three-game performance helped Eckhoff to the top of the MIAC scoring race. He also leads the league in 3-point field goal percentage and is second in free throw percentage.
