Pride Come Up Short Against Lakers

HAMMOND, Ind. – The Purdue Northwest men’s basketball team fell Saturday in a home conference contest to Lake Superior State. Senior Chandler Spring led the Pride with 14 points and three rebounds on the afternoon.

The Pride jumped out to a 7-0 lead on the strength of five points from Durante Lee, but the Lakers were able to respond with a run of their own late in the first half. After a three from Spring made it 29-26 with 6:35 to go, LSSU rattled off nine straight points to take a 35-29 lead. The Lakers closed the first frame with a pair of threes to take a 43-37 lead into the break.

The second half saw the Pride make a push early, but LSSU had an answer for every Pride run. LSSU ended up closing it out with an 82-72 victory in PNW’s last visit to Westville for the 2018-19 season.

In addition to Spring’s 14 points, freshman Anthony Barnard had another strong performance as he finished with 12 points and seven rebounds. Rich Robertson got himself back into the double-digit scoring column as he put up 10 points, four rebounds, and three assists.

Head Coach Boomer Roberts

“It’s a similar script for us today. We competed well, but we turned it over too much and got   hurt on the O-Boards. We had opportunities, but we missed a lot of chip shots around the rim. With one more game to go this season it’s all about honoring our seniors. They have poured a lot into this program and helped us take some real positive steps this year, and we want to do everything we can to help them finish their careers with a win on Thursday at home.”

Coming up this Thursday, Purdue Northwest will honor its pair of seniors, Chandler Spring and Ronald Karenzi as Wisconsin-Parkside rolls into the Fitness and Recreation Center in Hammond for the season finale. Tip-off will be at 7 p.m.
