Dordt def. Hastings 75-57

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Dordt Defender men’s basketball team used a strong defensive effort in the second half to secure a 75-57 win over the Hastings Broncos on Friday night, January 7 in Sioux Center, Iowa.

The Defenders trailed 24-16 with 10:33 left in the first half and a Camden Bialas three-point play started a 13-0 run that Jackson Louscher capped with a basket at the 6:41 mark. The teams played back and forth basketball the rest of the half with Hastings getting a 37-36 lead at the break on a Dashawn Walker bucket right before the buzzer.

Dordt quickly extended the lead to 47-39 to start the second half with Hastings managing to cut the gap to 47-44 on a Karson Gansebom three-point shot.  Dordt again had an answer and took a 56-46 lead with 12:01 left in the game with Bryce Coppock knocking down a three-point shot and the Defenders were never seriously challenged the rest of the game.

Dordt was 30-65 from the field and 10-27 on three-point shoots while getting to the free throw line for 5-8 success.

COACH VAN HAAFTEN SAID

“I thought Camden played really well tonight—he’s got experience and Ben Fairclough had a really good second half once he got used to it in the first half. Our five men continue to get a little better challenging at the rim and it’s fun to coach these guys.”
