Both games took a dramatic turn late. Carleton and St. Thomas were 57-all at 4:32, but the Tommies closed it out on a 13-0 run. Scott Thiesen was a 1-man gang for the Knights with 31 points, 3 assists and 2 steals.

Augsburg led Concordia by 14 late, but the Cobbers put on a 14-2 run to get within 2 at 1:23. But Concordia missed a tying 3 pointer and that's where the rally ended. Dan Kornbaum had 18 points and 9 boards for Augsburg, while Dewon McKenzie of Concordia had 18 points, 8 assists and 3 steals.

Player of the Day: Thiesen

Coach of the Day: Ted Critchley of the Roseville boys who clobbered Woodbury 74-52 in a revenge game.
