Rio Grande Sports Information
    PORTSMOUTH, Ohio – While hunters throughout the area have spent the days leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday trying to bag a trophy deer, the University of Rio Grande men's basketball team found itself hunting bear on Wednesday afternoon.
    And as things turned out, first-year head coach Ryan Arrowood's club was successful in their attempt.
    The RedStorm rallied from a 15-point second half deficit and took the lead for good inside the final minute of a 64-61 triumph over rival Shawnee State University in non-conference action at Waller Gymnasium.
    Rio Grande improved to 4-2 with a third consecutive victory, just its second in the last six meetings between the two schools and its first since a 65-59 win in Portsmouth on Jan. 31, 2017.
    Shawnee State, which received votes in the preseason NAIA Top 25 Coaches' Poll, suffered its first loss in five outings.
