"We had an excellent chance to put this one away early, but turnovers and fouls allowed Monte to get back into the game in the second quarter.

Thymian's 5 steals, and Wittenebel's 4 blocks were stat leaders in those departments. "After playing six of our first seven games on the road, our present 5-2 and 3-0 conference records are acceptable.
