Gustavus Basketball Teams Split With Concordia

Posted: Updated:

The Gustavus Adolphus basketball teams hosted Concordia College on Saturday.  The women started the double header with a barn burner.  The Golden Gusties held a 16 point lead in the first half, but the Cobbers pulled out the victory with two seconds left when Emily Thesing hit a free throw and intentionally missed the second.  Julia Dysthe had a shot at the buzzer but fell short, and Concordia upsets Gustavus 50-49.

The men's side was better news for the Golden Gusties.  Gustavus built a 46-27 lead by halftime.  The Cobbers would battle back in the 2nd half, but the Gusties hang on to win 87-75 behind a team high 17 points from Jim Hill.
