Concordia's Historic Season Ends in NCAA Round of 32
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
Four-year letterwinner Nick Haynes scored 11 points, but the Concordia University Texas men's basketball team was dealt a 117-92 loss by rival Mary Hardin-Baylor in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, March 9 at the Mayborn Campus Center.
The fourth meeting between the schools this season started off competitive and stayed a one-possession game until Thomas Orr converted two free throws that made it 12-8 in favor of the hosts at the 14:42 mark. Concordia, however, came back by scoring seven unanswered to take a 15-12 lead. Haynes made a 3-pointer from the left arc before Josh Sanchez followed up with a rare four-point play by canning a trifecta from the left arc and hitting his free throw.
Despite giving up several points by the long ball, Mary Hardin-Baylor recovered and started to pull away by embarking on an 8-1 run over a span of 2:33 to take a 31-22 lead and prompt a CTX timeout with 9:30 remaining in the opening half. Following the break, the Crusaders continued to stay hot and took a double-digit lead for the first time when James Allen nailed a trey that made it 36-26 with over eight minutes to play. Concordia brought the deficit down to as low as eight before the teams eventually headed into the break with the Crusaders leading by a 58-45 score.
Mary Hardin-Baylor (24-5) came out on fire to start the second half and never looked back. Brian Todd made a jumper to start the scoring and Cory Meals extended the lead to 20 by canning a trifecta that created a 79-59 score with 13:29 on the clock. The Crusaders reached the century mark courtesy of a 3-pointer by Antonie Chaney that made it 101-71 with less than eight minutes to play, giving the hosts their largest lead of the game before it was all over.
Patterson scored a team-leading 24 points to pace the Tornados, who advanced to the NCAA Tournament by capturing its first American Southwest Conference Tournament title with an 80-76 win over Mary Hardin-Baylor on a neutral court two weeks ago. He also added eight rebounds. Sanchez finished with 18 points and four assists, while Brett DeMetrotion contributed 14 points and seven boards.
Todd led Mary Hardin-Baylor by recording a double-double with 28 points and 15 boards. Allen had 27 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Orr and Meals also scored in double figures by netting 18 and 17 points, respectively.
Concordia (24-6), which was making its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division III Tournament, is slated to return 12 letterwinners and two starters next season.
Notes: Concordia set school records for overall wins (24) in the program's NCAA Division III and American Southwest Conference era and won its first American Southwest Conference crown this winter ... Nick Haynes, who was appearing in his 105th game, ended his four-year career ranked on several career lists during the team's NCAA Division III and ASC era which began in 1999 ... He finished sixth in points with 1,394, tied for eighth in steals with 112, sixth in field goals made with 438, second in 3-point field goals made with 296, and sixth in free throws made with 222.
