Red Raiders' Upset Bid Falls Short

Northwestern's upset bid fell just short as the Red Raiders lost to #6 Dakota Wesleyan 93-86 tonight in a GPAC match-up played at the Bultman Center. The loss drops Northwestern into a tie for eighth place with Nebraska Wesleyan at 7-10, 14-11 overall. 

Down 10 at the break (48-38), Northwestern outscored DWU 19-9 over the first six-plus minutes to tie the game at 57 following a three-pointer by T.J. Buyert. Bryce Moss sparked the run with six points and Nathan Wedel also knocked down a three-pointer. 

DWU guard Trae Bergh answered with a three-pointer and ignited an 8-2 Tigers' run as they built the lead back to six, 65-59. Back came Northwestern, however, scoring the next six points and tying the game at 65 after a pair of free throws by Buyert with nine minutes left to go. 

The teams exchanged baskets over the next 1-2 minutes until, with DWU leading by one (70-69), Tigers' guards Joey Mitchell and Jade Miller knocked down back-to-back three-pointers to put the visitors back up by seven at the six minute mark. Northwestern could not get any closer than six the rest of the way.

Northwestern shot 57% for the game, including 64% in the second half, and 55% (6-for-11) from beyond the arc. Moss and Colton Kooima shared team-high honors with 17 points each. Moss scored all of his points in the second half and finished one shy of matching his career-high. Jordan Baker put in 10 points, reaching double figures for the 21st time this season.

DWU also shot well, making 50% of its field goal attempts and 39% from beyond the arc (11-for-28). Jalen Voss scored 17 of his game-high 25 points in the first half while both Trae Bergh and Kris Menning netted 18. Miller (17) and Mitchell (13) were also in double figures for the Tigers, who improved to 15-3 in the GPAC, 25-3 overall. 

Northwestern will host Concordia on Saturday, Feb. 14 at 4pm for senior/parent's day.
