The third time was unfortunately the charm. The Calumet College of St. Joseph men's basketball team welcomed Holy Cross College to the Rittenmeyer for the second time in five days, having defeated HCC 64-61 on Saturday afternoon.

When you get this late into the season, every game is a big game. Even more so when you welcome a team onto your home court that is tied with you in the standings, both jockeying for postseason seeding. This was the case when the Crimson Wave men's basketball team brought in defending National Player of the Week Nic Reed and his Olivet Nazarene University Tigers to the Rittenmeyer Center on Wednesday night. It was a closely played matchup throughout, but the defense of CCSJ once again proved superior in a 73-63 victory.
Sophomore Franklin Nunn (Anderson, Ind./Liberty Christian) had a team-high 23 points, but the Purdue Northwest men’s basketball team could not maintain its big first-half lead and fell 78-66 to Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) foe Ashland University (Ohio) Saturday afternoon at Kates Gymnasium in Ashland, Ohio. The Pride held a 33-19 advantage with just over two minutes remaining in the first half, but the host Eagles used a strong second half to rally back and build their own double-digit lead for the GLIAC win.
There was no better team to defeat to get back on track than the first place (RV) Governors State University.

A missed Wave shot, along with a blown double digit lead, allowed Governors State to walk away with a 69-67 victory on Saturday afternoon.
