LAKE ZURICH, Ill. -- Zeke Steuerwald was feeling it tonight.
Behind the sophomore's career-high 17 points, the Sabercats cruised to a 70-52 win over Dayspring Bible College. MBU went into halftime ahead 37-21 and finished the job with another 33 points in the second half.
MBU Starters: 3-Book, 15-Lerma, 22-Sonnenberg, 23-Wilkerson, 35-Gill // DBC Starters: 3-Herriman, 4-Matillano, 22-Horring, 23-Julian, 30-Getty
"We ended up playing pretty well," said Coach Keith Salscheider. "We started off a little slow, and Dayspring is a tough place to play - they play hard and they feed off the crowd's energy. We ended up playing pretty well, and we have a game tomorrow and Saturday that we have to get ready for."
