ST. PAUL, Minn. (2/10/10)-- Concordia scored a season-high 50 points in the second half, received a perfect shooting night from freshman Aaron Lindahl and rolled to a 76-50 win over Macalester in St. Paul on Wednesday. It is the third straight win for the Cobbers and marks the second time this season they have scored 76 points against the Scots to come away with a win.

Concordia (11-12/7-11 MIAC) broke the game open in the second half. After seeing a five-point lead in the first half dwindle to two points at the break, the Cobbers roared into action in the final period and connected on six of their first eight shots from the floor to take a 10-point lead at 42-32 in the first 5:33 of play. Concordia would post another surge in the final five minutes of the game as they hit on their final 12 free throws of the game and turned a 13-point margin into a 26-point route. For the game the Cobbers were 23-for-27 (85.%) from the foul line. The 85.2% is a season high.

The Cobbers had three different players score 14 points each in the win. Lindahl scored 12 of his career-high 14 points in the 50-point second half and finished the night 3-for-3 from the floor, 1-for-1 from behind the arc and a tidy 7-for-7 from the foul line. Junior John Fraase recorded his third straight double-double and 11th overall of the year. He finished with 14 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Karl Olson was 5-for-10 from the floor and also finished with two converted touchdowns.

Macalester (2-21/0-18 MIAC) was led by Colin Keeley who came off the bench and finished with 12 points. No other Scot player factored in double figures in scoring. Jerry Kraus had a team-high six rebounds.

As a team, Concordia shot 52.2% (24-for-46) from the floor and 41.7% (5-for-12) from 3-point range. The 46 field goal attempts ties for the third fewest of the season for CC.
