Men’s basketball grounded by Spalding, falls to second in SLIAC


The Webster University men’s basketball team dropped Saturday’s St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game at Spalding University, 65-61. With the defeat, Webster falls to 10-12 overall on the season with a 10-3 SLIAC record. Spalding is now 12-11 with a 9-5 mark in SLIAC play.

Webster is a half-game back of first-place Eureka College, which is 11-3 in the SLIAC. It’s the first time this season the Gorloks don’t have at least a share of the SLIAC lead.

The Gorloks were trying to start a winning streak after their Tuesday victory at Principia College, but to no avail, as they lost the road game in Louisville, Ky. Webster has now lost two of its last three SLIAC contests after opening conference play 9-0.

The men’s basketball team will take the court again when it returns home to host Greenville College (12-8, 7-5) on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m. in Grant Gymnasium.
