PRESCOTT, Ariz. – Derek Novsek scored a game-high 27 points but it wasn't enough to keep SDC undefeated in the early season as they fell to Embry-Riddle 92-81 Friday night.
In the loss, the Hawks fall to 1-1 on the season. The Golden Eagles improved to 2-2.
ERAZ got off to a fast start thanks to cold shooting by SDC. The Hawks shot just 8-27 from the floor while the Golden Eagles were above 50 percent at 14-for-26. The Hawks never led in the first and at one time were down 16 points late in the half.
Down 16 in the second half, the Hawks started to make their move. SDC went on a 23-7 run in a span of seven minutes to tie the game at 61-61. At one point, the Hawks scored 11 straight points with Caleb Singleton, Novsek, and Hayden Fredrick all contributing to the cause.
A Novsek free throw gave SDC their first lead of the game at 62-61. Embry-Riddle would later tie it multiple times and eventually take the lead for good. Three other Hawks were in double figures. Isaiah Milan tallied 15 points while Nathan Klekas (13 pts) and Singleton (11 pts) rounded out that list.
The Hawks are back on the court on Saturday against Benedictine Mesa starting at 7 p.m.
