GEORGETOWN, Texas - The Centre College men missed a chance to move into a first-place tie in their conference when they lost 67-65 to Southwestern on Friday night.
Centre (16-6, 8-3 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) could have tied Trinity and Rose-Hulman, both of which lost Friday, at the top of the league. The Colonels remain one game behind those teams entering today's game at Trinity.
The Colonels were beaten badly on the boards, as Southwestern (14-8, 7-4) outrebounded them 43-31 and got 14 offensive boards in the process.
"We were going up against a team bigger than we were, but I was hoping for better rebounding from us," Centre coach Greg Mason said. "We make it so difficult on ourselves."
