Dordt College JV Men's Basketball vs. Buena Vista

November 25, 2013

(Sioux Center, Iowa) By Sam Ekstrom, Dordt College Sports Information Student Assistant

A sharp-shooting Buena Vista team knocked off the Defender men in junior varsity action Monday night. The Beavers shot 11 of 26 from 3-point range and pulled away in the closing minutes to earn a 79-70 victory.

Buena Vista was led by sophomore Sam Lipps with 15 points. Lipps’ 3-point shot with under four minutes to play gave Buena Vista a seven-point lead – their biggest advantage of the second half to that point. Dordt could only pull to within five points for the duration of the game.

Freshmen Matt Dykstra and Michael Den Herder were the only Defenders with double-figures points, scoring 14 and 13, respectively.

Dordt shot just 35 percent for the game and turned the ball over 14 times. They scored 42 points in the first half and trailed by one at halftime, but only mustered 28 second-half points.

The Defenders’ record dropped to 4-5, while Buena Vista won their season-opener to move to 1-0.

Dordt battles next against Morningside on Dec. 2.
