PALATINE, Ill.---The Bay College Men's Basketball Team (8-4) would pull away early and cruise to victory over the Harper College Hawks (1-8) on Friday night.

The Norse would walk away with a 75-47 victory on the road.

The two teams would trade the lead early and be tied at four in the early going.

An 18-2 Bay College run would give the Norse control of the game for good.  Bay would create 17 first half turnovers by the Hawks to create a commanding lead.  Harper would trail by a wide margin, with the score standing at 42-23 at the half.

The Hawks would make adjustments in the second half to limit turnovers, but the Norse would limit their opportunities by outrebounding their hosts 31-14 in the second half.

Bay College would shoot 14 of 34 in the second half, good for 32.6%. 

The Hawks would get just 28 attempts and only hit on nine of them in the second half, including going just one of six from behind the three-point arc.  The Norse would secure 22 offensive rebounds in the game, creating 17 second chance points.  Bay would lead by as many as 30 points down the stretch, and wind up with a 28-point victory.

Head Coach Matt Johnson talked about his team's effort.

"Our bench stepped up again and played well.  All twelve of our guys scored.  Our bench outscored theirs 40-0.  Our depth continues to be one of our strengths.  It was a great start to the weekend.  Now we need to make sure we are ready to play against a very good Milwaukee Area Tech team tomorrow."

Alfonzo Fields (SO, Milwaukee, WI) would add ten points, while Tyler Willette(SO, Escanaba, MI) would add nine points.
