Sophomore Max Froelich of Pierce puts up a shot at home. Froelich torched Adams State this past weekend with a career high 30 points to lead the Lopers to victory.

The UNK men’s basketball squad had a pair of games in Colorado heading into this past weekend. First on the 11th, the Lopers took on opponent Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo.  After trailing early, the Lopers grabbed a halftime lead and never looked back, getting a 86-76 victory. Max Froehlich led the way for the Lopers with a career-high 30 points in the win. Chris Deans nailed four three-pointers, and ended the game with 14 points. Co-head coach Tom Kropp stressed how important it would be for someone to step up in the absence of Drake Beranek, and Froehlich’s 30 points did just that.

Following the Friday night win over Adams State, the Lopers traveled 150 miles further west to Durango for a match-up with Fort Lewis on Saturday. Fort Lewis, with only one loss on the season, jumped out to an early lead and held on to defeat the Lopers 85-70, thanks in part to 14 three-pointers made throughout the course of the game. Josiah Parker was top scorer for UNK with 15 points, to go along with nine rebounds.

The Lopers return from Colorado with a 6-4 record and will prepare for a road match-up against the University of Nebraska at Omaha on Dec. 18. UNK is currently rated second in the East Division of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference behind Metro State.
