Rio Grande Sports Information

    Tech, which won for a third straight and the sixth straight time against Rio, improved to 11-6 overall and 6-1 in conference play.

[Women’s Basketball] Golden Bears upend Rio women

Rio Grande Sports Information
    BECKLEY, W.Va. – The University of Rio Grande had an opportunity to forge a tie with West Virginia University-Tech for the best record in the River States Conference East Division, as well as the best record in the league overall.
    Unfortunately, though, some serious offensive damage over the middle two quarters allowed the Golden Bears to grab a stranglehold on the inside track toward a division title and conference regular season championship, while also buckling themselves into the driver's seat in regard to both.
    Rio Grande sliced a 21-point third quarter deficit down to just six twice in the final three minutes, but Tech weathered the RedStorm comeback bid en route to an eventual 102-89 win, Thursday night, at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.
    WVU-Tech improved to 14-6 overall and 7-0 in conference play with the win – its eight consecutive victory and third straight triumph over Rio in the all-time series between the two schools.
    The RedStorm, who lost for the second time in three outings on the heels of a six-game winning streak, slipped to 12-8 overall and 5-2 in the RSC – two full games behind the Golden Bears for the RSC East lead and the league's top record.

[Men’s Basketball] Rio men fall in double OT

Rio Grande Sports Information
    NEW ALBANY, Ind. – University of Rio Grande men's basketball coach Ken French watched his short-handed RedStorm give maximum effort in a win at Brescia University on Thursday night.
    French's squad came up with the same kind of showing against a much better foe on Saturday afternoon, but the inability to hang on to the basketball prevented his club from recording a monumental upset.
    Indiana University Southeast overcame a seven-point halftime deficit and survived would-be game-winning shots at the end of both regulation and the first overtime session before pulling away in the second extra period for an 88-78 win in River States Conference action at the IUS Activities Building.
    The Grenadiers, who received votes in the most recent NAIA Division II coaches' poll, improved to 12-5 overall and 5-1 in league play with the victory.
    Rio Grande slipped to 9-11 overall and 2-4 in the RSC with the loss.

Rio Grande Sports Information
     OWENSBORO, Ky. – If you're ever charged with finding a perfect example of a "gutsy" effort from a collegiate basketball team, you need not look further than the performance of the University of Rio Grande men on Thursday night.
     The already injury-riddled RedStorm lost their top offensive threat just before the midway point of the second half, but somehow erased a pair of 11-point deficits after halftime and upended Brescia University, 70-67, in River States Conference action at the Moore Center.
     Rio Grande improved to 9-10 overall and 2-3 in league play with the win, snapping a three-game losing slide in the process.
     Brescia dropped to 4-11 overall and 1-4 in the RSC.
