Concordia travels to Midland on Wednesday in search of second straight GPAC win

The Concordia University men’s basketball team continues GPAC play on Wednesday evening at Midland University.  Tip is scheduled for 7:30 at the Midland Event Center in Fremont. 

The Bulldogs received votes in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll.  Concordia is 4-2 overall and 1-1 in GPAC play on the young season.  Last week, Concordia picked up a tough 70-65 win over Nebraska Wesleyan for their first GPAC win of the year.  Adam Vogt and Beau Smith led the way for Concordia in the win.  The duo combined for 40 points, and Vogt hit seven 3-pointers on the night.  The Bulldogs average 76.3 points per game while allowing 72.7 on the year. 

Midland University brings a 5-3 overall record with a 1-1 conference mark into Wednesday’s contest.  New head coach Todd Eisner is looking to turn the Warrior program around after a disappointing 8-24 record last year.  The Warriors are coming off an 81-78 win over then #14 Mount Mercy.  Donald Jones scored a game-high 25 points for Midland in the win.  The Warriors average 71 points per game while allowing 65.5. 

Fans unable to make the trip to Fremont can catch a live broadcast of the game via the Midland University athletic website.
