Bench delivers for NW

Tigers' reserves combine for 25 points.


“It’s one thing to get two or three kids really channeled in to what you want to do, but it’s different to have every guy channeled in on what you want to do,” Gish said. “It was amazing to me that we had 12 of the 13 guys who played score.”

Northwestern got 25 points from its bench.

“You’ve got to hand it to coach Gish, Northwestern came out and did an outstanding job of pushing us around. We just didn’t push back,” Braves coach Andy Steele said. “I thought we played a good third quarter. At one point, we cut it to eight but it’s like I told the guys, then one thing goes wrong and we hang our heads and they pull away again. We can’t have that mindset and expect to win games.”

Trailing 39-23 less than a minute into the second half, Mac strung together an 8-0 run to make it a 39-31 game with 4:55 showing. Adam Harts had a pair of scores sandwiched around a Dinn basket and Nick Love swished a pair of freebies to account for the run, but Northwestern then put together a 14-0 spurt to close the third quarter and open the fourth.

Ortmann scored five straight points, nailing a trey and adding a pair of free throws, to close out the run and put the Tigers up by 22, 53-31, with 6:55 showing on the game clock. Northwestern led by 20-plus points the rest of the way.

Blaine Brutus scored nine points for the Tigers. Keagan Downey scored eight, while Ortmann and Riley Hudson finished with seven apiece. Dinn led the way for Mac with ten points.
