[Men’s Basketball] No. 8 Cougars upend RedStorm

Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - For the better part of one half, the University of Rio Grande went toe-to-toe with one of the top teams in the nation.
    But a five-minute stretch at the start of the second stanza snuffed out any hopes that the RedStorm had of pulling an upset and recording a signature win.
    Mount Vernon Nazarene University parlayed a 13-4 run to begin the second half into a commanding 16-point lead and an eventual 63-45 win over Rio Grande, Tuesday night, in non-conference men's basketball action at the Newt Oliver Arena.
    The Cougars, who are ranked No. 8 in the latest NAIA Division II coaches' poll, pushed their overall record to 5-0 with the victory.
    The RedStorm, who suffered a sixth straight setback at the hands of MVNU, evened its ledger at 2-2 with the loss.
