Red Raiders Set School Record in 122-71 Win Over Oak Hills Christian

Northwestern College made a school record 22 three-pointers in defeating Oak Hills Christian 122-71 in the final game of the Dordt Holiday Classic played today in Sioux Center, Iowa. 

The Red Raiders push their win streak to 17 games and improved to 17-1 on the season. This is the longest win streak since the 2002-03 season where they won 25 straight en route to winning the 2003 NAIA Division II National Championship. 

Nathan Wedel scored his ninth and final point with a three-pointer at the 5:48 mark in the first half, becoming the 45th player to score 1,000 points for his career. Wedel is the third current player to reach the milestone, joining Jordan Baker, who reached it last year, and Colton Kooima, who scored his 1,000th point earlier this year. 

Christian Korver scored all of his career-high 21 points from beyond the arc, making 7-of-11 three-pointers. Korver tied eight other NWC players, most recently done by Riley Francis, for the second most three-pointers made in a single game. Brandon Woudstra, Andrew Stimson and Ben Gerleman hold the record with eight. 

Northwestern had a total of six players score in double figures, four set new career-highs. Derek Buysse poured in 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds in just 15 minutes of play. Keegan Van Egdom netted a career-best 15, pouring in a trio of three-pointers, and Tanner Hilbrands recorded a career-best 13 points and nine rebounds. Matt Hillman added a career-best 12 points while Grant Rohrer tallied his first double-double with 10 points and 10 boards.
