Sat. Jan. 9, 1999 MIAC Men's Basketball

Concordia-Moorhead      72
St. Thomas              71

By Gene McGivern, St. Thomas SID

        Sophomore Mike Wrobel's follow-up shot with :01 to play gave the visiting Conocrdia Cobbers (4-7, 2-5) a 72-71 win over host St. Thomas (7-4, 5-2) in MIAC men's basketball action Saturday at Schoenecker Arena.

       Wrobel's basket was one of only two field goals the Cobbers made in the final 9:52. The loss knocked UST out of first place.

        The Tommies, who rallied from a 16-point deficit in the final 9:52, took their first lead of the game with 1:03 to go as freshman Mark Buri converted a three-point play with a steal, layup and free throw.

        Concordia made 1-of-2 free throws with :23 to go to pull within 71-70. A UST turnover with 14 second left gave the Cobbers another chance. After a timeout, Kermit Cooper's jumper with :07 to go rimmed out. Wrobel got the long rebound and put up a short jumper that bounced three times and rolled in with :01 to go.

        Concordia jumped to a 14-3 lead, built it to 32-13 and still led 36-27 at halftime. Their biggest second-half lead was 61-45 with 9:52 to play after Joe Ford converted a three-point play.
        But Buri scored 10 and Kip Sparby had nine points to lead a 26-8 run that got the Toms back in the game.

        Ford had a game-high 23 points for the Cobbers, who made 52% from the field. Kaselring added 18 points and Cooper had 12 points, six assists and three steals.

        Sparby scored 16 points and added eight rebounds, Mark Buri had 13, Cole Butler scored 11 and Matt Arnold scored 10 for the Toms, who matched the Cobbers 52% shooting from the field.

1/7/99

Mens Basketball (7-3 Overall, 5-1 MIAC)

UST 87, C-St. Paul 53; UST 66, St. Olaf 60; Augsburg 95, UST 74;
UST 74, Carleton 69

St. Thomas moved into first place in the MIAC Wednesday night as it posted its sixth win in its last seven games... UST takes a 7-3 overall and 5-1 MIAC record  into a busy stretch of four games in eight days -- a 3 p.m. home game Saturday vs. Concordia; a 7:30 home game Monday vs. Bethel; a 7:30 home game Wednesday vs. Gustavus; and a 7:30 road game Jan. 16 at St. Johns... The Toms beat Carleton 74-69 at home Wednesday night as Matt Arnold (SR-Minnetonka/ Hopkins) scored 13 of his 20 points in the second half, including a long 3-pointer with 27 seconds to go. Arnold, who made 8-of-10 shots from the field on the game, also had a key tip-in at the buzzer as the first half ended... The Toms moved into first place in the MIAC at 5-1 ahead of 3-1 Gustavus, which lost Wednesday at St. Olaf, and idle Augsburg (4-1)... Kip Sparby (JR-Cold Spring/ Rocori) sank 4-of-4 free throws in the final :07 to clinch the win. Sparby finished with 22 points and eight rebounds. Carleton whittled a 16-point second-half deficit to only one point with 4:23 to play. Carleton sank 18-of-19 free throws on the game -- the lone miss was intentional with :06 left, trailing 72-69... Arnold's 25-foot 3-pointer just beat the shot clock and came after a time out with :04 left on the shot clock... It gave UST a 70-62 lead with :27 left, but Carleton sank a pair of 3-pointers at :16 and :08 to play, respectively, to stay alive. Carleton sank eight 3-pointers in its second-half comeback bid. Joe Buri (JR-St. Paul/Trinity) scored 12 for the Toms, who shot 58% from the field (26-of-45)... UST scored a 66-60 win Saturday at St. Olaf as Cory Schlagel (SR-Rush City) had a career-high 16 points (3-of-3 from 3-point range and 5-of-5 at the line). Sparby added 16 points and 12 rebounds... UST lost 95-74 at home Monday to Augsburg as the Auggies shot 60% from the field and had only six turnovers. Joe Buri scored 15 of his 20 in the second half; Mark Buri (FR-St. Paul/ Trinity) added nine points and four assists; Arnold had nine points and six assists... Cole Butler FR-Rochester/Lourdes) moved into the starting five following a season-ending foot injury to Teddy Swanson (SO-Stillwater). Butler had 10 points and four rebounds vs. Augsburg and six points, four rebounds and three blocks vs. Carleton... UST scored an easy win at Concordia-St. Paul Dec. 18 as Sparby just missed a triple double -- 13 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 27 minutes.
