The ending was bitter in the Fieldhouse on Wednesday night as the Wolves lost to Siena Heights University despite holding a big lead during the 1st quarter. UM-Dearborn’s momentum kept Siena Heights contained during the first half as the Wolves held as much as a 10-point lead against their opponent.

The Wolves came out from the start determined to play strong and better than their last game. Compared with their previous game against Lourdes College, the Wolves improved in all areas with more rebounds, field goals, and 3-point attempts Wednesday night.

Unfortunately this improvement was not enough. The Wolves lost their stance, and slowly, their hold on the game during the second half. Both teams got into foul trouble toward the last part of the game which kept both teams on the free throw line frequently, but Siena Heights seemed to profit more from the foul troubles. The final score at the Fieldhouse was 66-74.

Despite the loss for the home team, there were key players. Freshman Jamiel Strickland was the leading scorer of the night for UM-Dearborn with 15 points. Junior Julius Porter had 14 points along with being 75% from the free throw line.

After falling to Davenport University on Saturday, the men’s team is now 1-21 on the season and 0-10 in the WHAC.

The Wolves take on Concordia University Wednesday at 7:30 in the Fieldhouse.
