SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Peter Beale-Wirsing's double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds wasn't enough as the Hawks' upset bid of NCAA Div. I Santa Clara University fell short Saturday night.
The Broncos held on to a 70-58 win against the Hawks.
Santa Clara improves to 2-0, while SDC was playing the game as an exhibition.
Thompson started the scoring off with a 3-pointer in the opening seconds of the contest. Another trey by Rafael Rodriguez gave SDC a quick 6-2 lead and was winning until the Broncos made it 16-14 in favor of Santa Clara. The two teams were tied at 29-29 at the half. Beale-Wirsing added a block with two seconds left in the half to keep the score tied.
The Broncos, however, took the lead after the break going on a 6-0 run to start the half before Nielsen made one of his 3-pointers to bring the score back within three points. A jumper by Beale-Wirsing's with 11:19 remaining cut the Hawks deficit to three as the Broncos led 44-41. Six straight points by the Broncos was the turning point in the game and the Hawks couldn't catch up.
SDC will travel to Claremont-Mudd on Tuesday in their next game. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
