Cobbers Press St. Mary's Into 76-68 Victory for First MIAC Win of the Year. 
Box Score: Concordia 76 at St. Mary's 68
WINONA-- Concordia took advantage of the only other team in the MIAC that is younger than they are, by pressing St. Mary's from the moment they stepped in the gym and came away with a 76-68 victory. The Cobbers forced the Cardinals into 24 turnovers to secure their first conference win of the season.

A trio of Cobbers factored in the scoring recap. Mark Dixon (Jr., St. Paul, Minn./Mounds View HS) was a force all over the court as he came away with 16 points, a game-high eight rebounds and five assists.(More)

Cobbers Can't Crack Defending MIAC Champion Gustavus, Lose 80-57. 
Box Score: Concordia 57 at Gustavus 80
ST. PETER-- Defending MIAC champion Gustavus raced to a 24-9 lead to start the game, never looked back and beat Concordia 80-57 in St. Peter. 

After the first nine minutes of the game, the Cobbers were never able to get to within 14 points of the Gusties and fell for the second straight time to open the 2004-05 MIAC conference season. Concordia is now 0-2 in league play and 1-4 overall. Gustavus remains perfect in the MIAC, as they move to 2-0. Overall, the Gusties are now 3-2. 

The story of the game was Gustavus' uncanny ability to hit the 3-point shot all game long. The Gusties shot 75.0% (12-for-16) from behind the arc. They were only 62.5% (30-for-48) overall from the field and 53.3% (8-for-15) from the free throw line.(More

Cobbers Turnover 10-Point Lead in Second Half and Fall 81-79 to St. John's.
Box Score: Concordia 79, St. John's 81
COLLEGEVILLE-- In a game plagued by turnovers, Concordia squandered a 10-point lead with under 15 minutes to play and lost 71-69 at St. John's. Both the Cobbers and the Johnnies recorded 19 turnovers in the first conference game of the 2004-05 season for both teams.

Concordia (0-1, 1-3) built a five-point lead at halftime by going on a 10-4 run in the final four minutes of the opening period. The Cobbers then opened the lead to double digits by outscoring St. John's (1-0, 1-1) 16-11 in the first five minutes of the second half. 

After that point, the Johnnies switched to a half-court trap on defense and started to whittle away at the Cobber lead. St. John's got to within three at 63-60 with just under 10 minutes to play in the game, and came as close as a single point at 67-66 with 6:17 left to go in the second half. The Johnnies tied the game at 75-75 with 2:08 remaining and never trailed again. In the end, St. John's ended up scoring 11 of the final 15 points in the game to come away with the two-point victory.(More

Eckhoff's Career Game Not Enough, as Cobbers Falter Down the Stretch and Lose 84-82. 
Box Score: Concordia 82, Mayville State 84
MOORHEAD-- For 38:58 of the 40 minutes in the game, Concordia looked well on their way to claiming their fourth straight victory over Mayville State. Unfortunately for the Cobbers, the final score is what counts and the Comets were able to wrestle the outcome away from Concordia in the final 1:02 and win 84-82.

The Cobbers led by as many as seven points with under nine minutes to go, but were outscored 22-13 in the final eight minutes of play and lost their 2004-05 season-opener. Mayville State ups their record to 3-1 on the year. In 2003-04 they posted a total of one win. 

Keith Eckhoff (Jr., Alexandria, Minn.) carried the scoring load for the Cobbers. He was 4-for-6 from 3-point range and 10-for-14 from the floor and finished with a career-high 33 points. He also had a game-high seven rebounds.(More)

2004-05 Cobber Men's Basketball Preview
- Complete 2004 Concordia Men's Basketball Preview
The saying goes that you can attract more flies with honey than vinegar. And after last year’s “sweet” season, where the Cobber men’s basketball team finished third in the regular season and advanced to the MIAC semifinals, Concordia head coach Duane Siverson was able to attract a quality group of first-year fliers to go along with his swarm of top-notch returning players. The 2004-05 roster features eight freshmen on the team, the most in program history.

The biggest buzz for the Cobbers in 2004-05 will be made underneath the basket. Concordia returns 2003-04 MIAC All-Conference forward Soren Nelson (Sr., Twin Valley, Minn.). Nelson led the team in rebounding (5.4 rpg)and was second  in scoring last season (14.3 ppg). He was 13th in the conference in scoring in league games. He also finished 12th in the MIAC in rebounding, 11th in free throw percentage (79.5%) and sixth in blocked shots (20). His ability to score inside and then step outside and hit the open 3-point jumper makes him a tough player to guard for any opposing team. (More)
