Tech men rally past Corban

SPOKANE — Montana Tech’s men’s basketball team opened the Red Lion Cascade/Frontier Conference Challenge with a 75-70 come-from-behind win Friday afternoon.

“It was a tale of two halves,” said head coach Aaron Woliczko.

The Orediggers trailed 41-29 at the break after a sloppy first half that saw 13 turnovers. Corban shot 51.6-percent from the field and 35.3-percent from beyond the arc.

“They shot the three real well. In the second half, we ran them off the three-point line and made them go to the basket.”

The Orediggers outscored Corban in the second half limiting their three-point and free throw opportunities.

Tech shot 62.5-percent from the field in the second half and 57.8-percent in the game.

Junior guard Bryan Bock led the team with 27 points on 8 of 14 shooting. He went 11 of 15 from the charity stripe. He added six rebounds, five assists and two steals to his game totals as well.

Senior Dan Simon had a double-double in the contest. He had 12 points and ten rebounds.

“Bock and a great game and Simon really helped us down the stretch.”

Adam Greger was the only other Oredigger in double-digits with 12 points and

six rebounds.

The Orediggers play their second and final contest at the Red Lion Challenge tomorrow at 3 PM MST. They tip off against Evergreen State College of Washington.
