Rio Grande Sports Information
    CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio – For the University of Rio Grande men's basketball team to have any realistic hopes of earning a post-season berth, a win in Saturday afternoon's game at Ohio Christian University was paramount.
    The RedStorm responded with the program's best single-game defensive effort in more than five years.
    Head coach Ken French's squad built a 17-point halftime lead and maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way en route to a 66-46 rout of the Trailblazers in River States Conference action at the Maxwell Center.
    Rio Grande ended a three-game losing streak, improving to 10-17 overall and 4-10 inside the RSC with the win.
    The victory also gave the RedStorm a two-game lead over OCU for the fourth and final post-season berth out of the league's East Division with three games left to play. Any combination of Rio wins or OCU losses totaling two will secure a spot in the RSC Tournament for Rio.
    Ohio Christian dropped to 6-20 overall and 2-12 in league play with an eighth straight loss.
