LAKE ERIE COLLEGE at NOTRE DAME COLLEGE

NOV. 30 at 7 PM

GAME NOTES

The Lake Erie College men's basketball team plays their final game before the opening of Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) play at rival Notre Dame University. 

"Playing on the Monday after Thanksgiving break is difficult and especially when it is against such a quality opponent as Notre Dame," said Storm Head Coach Cliff Hunt.  "Their coach Tim Koenig was on our staff a couple of years ago and that adds to the intrigue.  We will have to be really good in transition to have a chance on the road at Notre Dame.  Notre Dame scores an amazing 33% of their points in transition behind their point guard Tyree Gaiter.   We have to figure out a way to slow that down."

LAST TIME OUT: The Storm shot 61.5% of their shots as they defeated Edinboro University 80-67 on the road last week.  Andy Bosley led the Storm with 24 points, seven rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists.  Trey Howard and Sean Howard had 14 points apiece.  Michael Morris also finished in double digits with 12 points. 

SERIES HISTORY: This marks the third meeting between the teams since 2010.  The Storm won the previous two meetings.  Their last matchup came in 2012 when the Storm defeated 92-80 at Notre Dame. 

OPPOSITION POSITION: The Falcons enter the game with a 3-2 record.  They fell to Wheeling Jesuit University 88-84 their last time out.

FORECAST: The Storm opens GLIAC play at Ferris State Thursday (Dec. 3).
