Men’s basketball team puts up 101 points in win


After putting up its lowest point total of the year, the SVSU men’s basketball team came out in force, scoring a season-high 101 points in a 101-68 win over Grace Bible College.

The victory was a strong rebound after the Cardinals saw its 13-game winning streak end against Michigan Tech last Saturday.

With the win, the team’s overall record jumped to 15-3, with an impressive 11-1 showing in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC).

Sophomores CJ Turnage and Garrett Hall each tied for the team-lead in points, scoring 15 apiece. Senior Lindsey Johnson came in third with 13 points. Freshman Devin Dixon tied senior Kalen Foreman with 10 points as the Cards had five players score double-digits. Foreman led the team in rebounds with eight.

SVSU will look to add to the win and go on another winning streak when it travels to play rival Grand Valley State University. The game will start at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29.
