Roland, Magee Lead Aurora to 84-73 Win
February 25, 2009 - The Aurora University Spartans men’s basketball team defeated the Concordia (Wis.) University Falcons 84-73 Saturday afternoon in the Northern Athletics Conference Challenge game at Thornton Gymnasium.
The Spartans found themselves trailing early, as the Falcons jumped out to an early 11-5 lead four minutes into the game. At the midway point of the first half, however, the Spartans took the lead, making the score 20-19.
The Spartans would extend their lead seconds later, as senior forward Chad Trudo hit two three pointers in a span of 40 seconds, to make the score 29-22 Spartans. Following a Falcon timeout, junior guard Dusty Magee continued the offensive surge, as he hit consecutive three pointers, and, in a blink of an eye, the Spartans led 40-24, thanks to a 20-5 run.
In the final minutes of the half, the Falcons put together a run of their own, as they closed the half on a 12-3 run, making the score at halftime 43-36.
The Spartans came out of halftime and promptly extended their lead to 58-42 behind the stellar play of Trudo and junior forward Shane Roland.
At the midway point, the Spartans added to their lead, making the score 70-53. From that point, the Falcons would never mount a serious threat, and the Spartans cruised to the victory, winning 84-73.
Top Spartan performers included Trudo (26 points), Roland (15 points), sophomore center Skyler Ormsbee (12 points) and Magee (10 points). AU improves their record to 13-12 on the season and will be the No. 5 seed in the Northern Athletics Conference Men's Tournament.
