PDF

The Coe men's basketball team outscored Wartburg 11-2 in overtime Saturday and claimed a 77-68 victory in an Iowa Conference game at Eby Fieldhouse.

The Kohawks prevailed despite not scoring a single point in the final three minutes of the second half. The Kohawks took a 66-65 lead with 3:20 left in regulation on a free throw by Matt Meyer, but then both teams went into a scoring drought.

Wartburg tied the game, 66-66, on a free throw by Nate Woeste with 58 seconds left in the second half, but he missed his second free throw and the game was still tied when the horn sounded.

Trevor Haaland and Christian Fahey scored the first two baskets of overtime for Coe as the Kohawks grabbed a 70-66 advantage. Jaran Sabus made two free throws to pull Wartburg within 70-68 with 2:58 left, but the Kohawks blanked the Knights 7-0 the rest of the way on seven free throws.

Matt Vonderhaar scored 15 points to lead a balanced attack for Coe (8-13, 3-7). Meyer finished with 14 points and Fahey had 10. Vonderhaar grabbed 11 rebounds for a double-double. Jake Timm collected eight points, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals for the Kohawks.
