Dordt College JV Men's Basketball vs. Morningside

December 2, 2013

(Sioux Center, Iowa) The Dordt Defender junior varsity men fended off a furious Morningside rally to take a 75-72 decision on Monday night.

Michael Den Herder scored a personal season-high 25 points, including 18 before halftime. Derik Gogg scored 17, and Eric Talsma notched 13 for the Defenders.

Dordt held a 16-point lead at the half, and an 18-point lead early in the second half, but a 16-0 run by Morningside brought them within two at 48-46.

The Defenders stabilized things to push their lead back to 57-48, but Morningside continued to chip away and pulled within two points again in the closing minute. With the score 74-72, Morningside’s Joseph Christen missed an open jump shot on the baseline that would have tied it.

After a Dordt missed free throw, Sky Aldrich missed a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer to make the Dordt victory official.

The Mustangs (3-3) were led in the game by Matt Klemme’s 20 points.

Dordt (5-5) gets right back at it with a game at Northeast Community College on Tuesday.
