MBK: Cougars Cruise Past Minot St.

Sioux Falls, SD

The University of Sioux Falls men's basketball cruised to a convincing 82-59 win over Minot State University Friday night at the Stewart Center in Sioux Falls, S.D. Reminiscent of seven days earlier, the Cougars established a 23 point first half lead and never looked back. In total, 11 different USF players scored, with seven Cougars recording at least one of their 12 three point makes.

With the win, USF moves to 9-12 on the season and 8-4 at home, while Minot drops to 8-13, 7-10 in NSIC play.

Robert Goffney came two points shy of his career-high with 19 points to lead all scorers. He shot 8-of-10 from the field and 3-of-5 from three point range, while delivering a game-high six assists. James Rader was the only other Cougar in double figures. He recorded 15 points and 10 rebounds for USF's first double-double of the season.

USF returns to the court tomorrow, when they host the University of Mary at 6 p.m.
