Regis ends CSC’s 4-game winning streak

DENVER – The Regis men’s basketball team went on a 25-3 scoring run midway through the second half to blow open a close game en route to their 86-76 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference victory Friday night in Denver.

Chadron State, now 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the RMAC, owned a 48-43 lead with 17 minutes to go in the second half but Regis got hot, connecting on three layups in succession and four Lance Korell 3-pointers to push the advantage to 68-51 with eight minutes, 45 seconds to play. The Eagles cut the lead to 10 points later in the contest, but they were never able to recover from Regis’ scoring burst.

Korell finished with a game-high 23 points, 21 of those points coming in the second half, to lead Regis (3-3, 1-2 RMAC) in scoring. Chris Johansen and Slobodan Jovanovic each scored 14 and Jon Conley added 11.

Four players scored in double-digits for Chadron State and the Eagles shot 51 percent as a team (26 for 51), but they had a hard time taking care of the ball by turning it over a season-high 26 times. CSC also struggled from the foul line, hitting just 18 of 32 attempts.

Trey Mosby led Chadron State with 15 points, while Ron Hudson and Kevin McClelland each scored 13. Hudson finished with a game-high seven rebounds and Mosby had five assists.

Also for Chadron State, Moala Tautuaa scored 12 points and Christian McGhee added eight more.

The Eagles will play at Metro State tonight (Saturday). Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
