WAUKESHA, Wis. - The Lake Forest College men's basketball team began the Midwest Conference portion of its schedule with a pair of road losses over the weekend (December 5-6). The Foresters fell 68-57 at St. Norbert College Friday night and 84-60 at Carroll University the following afternoon and are now 1-5 overall this season. St. Norbert's MWC-opening victory raised the Green Knights' overall record to 4-1 and Carroll is now 5-2 overall and 2-0 in the league.

Lake Forest junior forward Patrick Hanley (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield) led the visitors with 15 points at St. Norbert. Freshman post player Travis Clark (Evanston, Ill./Evanston) was next on the squad with a dozen points on 6-for-7 shooting from the field and he added a team-high eight rebounds. Junior forward Victor Campbell (Milwaukee, Wis./Wisconsin Lutheran) also reached double figures with 11 points.

Both teams shot nearly 44 percent from the field. The Foresters made seven of 21 attempts from three-point range and eight of 10 from the free throw line. St. Norbert shot 4-for-15 from beyond the arc and knocked down 14 of 18 foul shots. The Green Knights out-rebounded the visitors38-26 and Lake Forest committed 13 of the game's 23 turnovers.

The first half included four ties and 10 lead changes. Neither team led by more than three points until St. Norbert closed out the period with nine straight points to take a 31-25 advantage at intermission.

Lake Forest was outscored 25-11 during the first 11 minutes of the second half. A 16-6 Forester run cut the home team's 20-point lead in half with just less than a minute remaining in the contest but the visitors would get no closer.

Freshman forward Drew Grennell (Tinley Park, Ill./Providence Catholic) led Lake Forest with a career-high 15 points on Saturday at Carroll. He shot 6-for-8 from the field in the contest. Clark and fellow freshman post player Dayton Young (Muskego, Wis./Catholic Memorial) added 10 points apiece and Clark led the squad with five rebounds. Hanley dished out a team-high four assists.

The Foresters shot 40 percent from the field, 6-for-23 from three-point range, and 6-for-10 from the foul line. The Pioneers made half of their field goal attempts, eight of 19 three-pointers, and 16 of 20 free throws. Carroll out-rebounded its guests 41-29 and Lake Forest committed 11 turnovers while forcing nine.

Carroll scored the game's first six points and led by as many as 11 (19-8) early in the first half. A 13-0 Pioneer run later in the period extended the margin to 22 points and the home team led by the same amount (50-28) at halftime.

A 15-2 run gave the Pioneers a 31-point lead, their largest of the contest with 11 minutes to play and the difference stayed in the 20s for the rest of the game.

The Foresters will close out the fall semester with a non-conference game at North Central College Tuesday night (December 9) at 7:30 p.m.
