The top-ranked Concordia Bulldogs won 71-68 over three-time defending national champion and No. 8-ranked Northwestern (11-4, 5-3 GPAC) on Wednesday in Seward, NE. With half of the conference schedule remaining, the unbeaten Bulldogs (15-0, 8-0 GPAC) still feel there is room for improvement.
Concordia head coach Drew Olson said. “They made us work for everything we got. They outplayed us for 33 minutes, but those last seven minutes were fun to watch. Our team knows how to win. They step up and make big shots when the game is on the line.”
Sophomore guard Bailey Morris helped lead the charge late by scoring Concordia’s final six points of the game.
“That’s the team we are,” Morris said. “We have to find ways to win and we did that tonight. We had a lot of people step up. I think Katie, Tracy and Connie all had some big threes there at the end.”
Concordia has won 23-straight games against GPAC opponents and has now beaten each of the other three conference teams ranked in the top eight of the national poll. Concordia is back in action on Saturday at Dordt (9-9, 4-5 GPAC). Game time is 2 p.m. from Sioux Center, Iowa.
