The M State Men's basketball team lost to NDSCS 86-62 on Wednesday night in Fergus Falls. The Wildcats hit 46% of their shots from the field and held the Spartans to 32% shooting on the night.
"Strong defensive pressure caused problems for our guys all game long and we never got a chacne to feel comfortable with our half-court offense," said Head Coach Shawn Sorenson. "The biggest difference in the game was rebounding with a 45-22 margin in favor of the Wildcats."
Melvin Newbern Jr. led the Wildcats with 18 points. Steven Lipp and Sam Baker added 16 points each and Marquis Holloman contributed a dozen.
The Spartans will travel to Thief River Falls for a game against Northland Community College on Wednesday, November 15.
