  • Duff-Chris-1718
  • MackeyAdam-18-1

Chris Duff scored 19 points, George Diekelman added 16 and UW-Eau Claire went on the road and knocked off UW-La Crosse 75-61 in WIAC men’s basketball action Wednesday night at Mitchell Hall in La Crosse.

Twelve of Duff’s 19 and 11 of Diekelman’s 16 came in the second half, when the Blugolds (11-11, 3-8) shot 67.7 percent from the floor. That allowed them to overturn a nine-point halftime deficit.

Cole Rabedeaux added nine points and Blake Wacholz and Clay Kujawa each had eight off the bench. That helped UW-Eau Claire pull even with UW-La Crosse (11-11, 3-8) in the conference standings. The two teams are tied for sixth place — which holds the final spot in the WIAC tournament.

Taulvish McCray led the Eagles with 14 points.

The Blue Devils shot 51.9 percent from the floor and were 16-for-28 from 3-point range, good for 57.1 percent. That allowed them to overcome being outrebounded 43-20.

Alex Herink, a Hudson grad, scored 22 points for UW-River Falls (14-7, 5-6), while Brennan Witt had 16 points and 13 rebounds. Matt Keller had given the Falcons an 81-80 lead with a 3-pointer with 22 seconds left.
