  LAST TIME OUT

The Wildcats opened their season with a split against Parkside, including a memorable overtime clinching victory in game one of the 2020-21 season. 

In their first game of the season, the men shot 43.9 percent from the field, and led the points off turnovers battle, with 10 points off the Rangers' 10 turnovers. Newcomer Max Bjorklund, a transfer from Bemidji State, led the team in point for the victory with 23, including the three-point shot to give the team the lead with a minute to play in regulation, ultimately sending them to overtime. 

The team would go on to the weekend split, dropping game two of the series, 72-55.
