Game Notes

About the Cobbers
The Cobbers enter today‚s game at 0-2 in the MIAC, 1-5 overall, after losing 77-71 to St. John‚s here Monday and 78-54 at Gustavus on Wednesday.  The Cobbers trailed St. John‚s 72-71 with 40 seconds to play but were unable to get over the hump. At Gustavus the Cobbers led 21-20 in the first half and trailed 33-25 at the half. But a strong run by the Gusties to start the second half put the game away and left Gustavus at 5-0 for the year.

The Cobbers were led by Jim Gillhouse‚s  21 points in the loss to St. John‚s. Mike Wrobel had 20.  At Gustavus, Troy Becker came off the bench to post a career high 11 points.  Becker is the 8th Cobber to post a double-figures scoring game this year.

Injury Notes:
Wade Sirny underwent knee surgery  recently and his return date is uncertain. Nate Malchow injured a knee in the Crookston game and underwent surgery on Thursday. He is expected back after Christmas.

About the Carleton Knights
Carleton comes into tonight‚s game having lived up to  pre-season expectations that they would be one of the MIAC favorites. Carleton is 6-0 on the year, 2-0 in the MIAC. The Knights, with 4 returning starters,  are led by pre-season All-American Josh Wilhelm. Wilhelm, a 6-8 junior, recently scored his 1000th point for Carleton and comes in averaging 17 points per game.
