Minnesota Duluth men's basketball made more than 60 percent of its shots from the field and had three players make 10 or more field goals in a 99-76 non-conference victory at Concordia-St. Paul on Friday night.
Charlie Katona was hottest of them all, going 11-for-14 from the field and 4-for-4 from the free-throw line for a career high 28 points in 29 minutes. Drew Blair was 11-for-20 and scored 27 points, while Austin Andrews contributed 22 points (10-for-16) in 26 minutes.
A 12-2 run in the middle of the first half allowed UMD to expand its lead to 16 points. The Golden Bears got within six before halftime but another 16-4 run early in the second put the margin back outside 20 points.
Sunday John scored 18 points off the bench to lead Concordia (1-3). The teams' only conference meeting is Jan. 8 in Duluth.
UMD (4-0) begins conference play on Tuesday at home vs. St. Cloud State.
