CHICAGO, IL (December 20, 2004)  – Lamar Townsend scored 14 points, but the  North Park University (NPU) men’s basketball team dropped a 73-50  decision to Benedictine University last Saturday night at the North Park  Gymnasium.

The Vikings, 3-6 in nonleague games heading into Christmas break,  trailed 42-27 at halftime to the visiting Eagles (7-2), ranked 23rd in  the most recent NCAA Division III’s national poll. They  never recovered despite the work of reserves Mike Peterson (5 of 9 field  goal shooting), Je’Shawn Stevenson and Steve Reynolds.

Peterson had 12 points, Stevenson had nine and Reynolds (who is from  Southwest Covenant Church in Lockport, Illinois) added four points in 14  minutes of play. Another player off NPU’s bench, Larry Moore, was the  team’s top rebounder with five. Matt Harrison scored 20 points, Zach  Ramey had 16 points and Adam Hansen had 14 for Benedictine. Hansen led  all rebounders with 10.

NPU travels to southern California for a two-day tournament at Redlands  University. On January 5, coach Paul Brenegan’s team plays LaSierra  College of Riverside, California, in a 4 p.m. (PST) matchup while  Redlands hosts Robert Morris College of Illinois later that evening. The  third place game and championship contest will be played the following evening.
