College men's basketball: UMD pulls away in second half
Joshua Brown and Drew Blair co-led UMD with 21 points apiece.
Minnesota Duluth men's basketball made seven 3-pointers and more than half of their field-goal attempts in the second half to continue their undefeated start to the season with a 76-63 nonconference victory at Northern Michigan in the Berry Events Center on Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021.
The teams were tied at 31 at halftime before steadily separating from the Wildcats in the second half. Joshua Brown's triple with 12:50 to play grew the lead to 10 and NMU got no closer than seven points the rest of the way. The Bulldogs went 15-of-28 from the field and 7-of-12 from 3-point range in the second half.
Brown made six of UMD's nine treys in the game and was one of three Bulldogs with at least 20 points. His 21 co-led UMD with 21 points from Drew Blair and a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds for Austin Andrews.
NMU (3-3) got a game-high 23 points from Max Bjorklund.
UMD (7-0) returns to Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play on Thursday at Bemidji State.
