Men’s Basketball falls to Madison Tech

November 29, 2008

The Anoka-Ramsey Men’s Basketball team suffered a setback on Saturday night, falling to the Wolfpack of Madison Tech 80-57.  A sluggish first half combined with cold second-half shooting led to the defeat. 

The Wolfpack shot a blistering 57.6% in the first half to take a 49-32 lead into the break.  Madison Tech then blew the game open with a 10-0 run in the first 4 minutes of the second half to open a 27 point lead, 59-32. 

Anoka-Ramsey was able to hold Madison Tech to 21 points the rest of the game, but only shot 27.6% themselves in the second half.  The Golden Rams committed 23 turnovers, finishing the night shooting just 18-52 for 34.6% while Madison Tech finished 30-61 for 49.2%. 

Anoka-Ramsey was led in scoring by freshman Erik Vinh and sophomore Mohamed Camara who each tallied career highs of 11 points off the bench.  Vinh, who pulled down a career-high eight rebounds, was 4-9 from the field and 3-4 from the free-throw line, Camara finished 3-6 from the field all on 3-point attempts and was 2-2 from the line. 

Anoka-Ramsey falls to 2-4 on the season and will travel to St. Paul to take on the University of St. Thomas JV team Monday, Dec. 1 at 7:00pm.
