Golden Rams Rally, Split Weekend Games

December 09, 2008

The Anoka-Ramsey Men’s Basketball team split their two weekend games, losing to the defending MCAC champion Central Lakes College 88-71 on Friday night, and defeating Fond du Lac 80-76 on Saturday afternoon.

In Friday night’s game, the Golden Rams rallied from a 24 point second half deficit to pull within nine with just under five minutes remaining.  Anoka-Ramsey was unable to sustain the momentum and ultimately fell 88-71.

The Golden Rams made a season-high 12 three-point field goals and shot 45% overall (27-60), but it wasn’t enough to make up for 22 turnovers.  Anoka-Ramsey was led by Michael Kizzee and DeAndre Mason, both scoring 14 points, followed by Mohamed Camara with 10 points.

On Saturday the Golden Rams faced the Thunder from Fond du Lac and came away with an 80-76 victory.  Solid defense in the first half led to numerous steals and fast-break opportunities for Anoka-Ramsey as they went into halftime with a 42-33 lead. 

The Golden Rams built a 14 point lead in the second half, but a combination of missed layups and free throws for Anoka-Ramsey, and some deep three-point shots from the Thunder allowed Fond du Lac to close within three points with under a minute left.  For the second time in less than a week, Bryce Wagner hit a free throw to ice the game for Anoka-Ramsey.

The Golden Rams made a season-high 49% from the field (30-61) and came away with 16 steals.  Two players scored double digits for Anoka-Ramsey. Antonio Tate led with 21 points and recorded 7 steals, followed by Kyle Matuska with 16 points.  Wagner nearly had a double-double, finishing with 9 points and 9 rebounds (5 offensive) off the bench.  Michael Kizzee put in a strong overall performance with 8 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.

The Golden Rams return home for three games beginning Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 7:00pm vs. the St. John’s JV.  Anoka-Ramsey defeated the Johnnies earlier this year 74-66.  The Golden Rams will host Vermilion on Friday, Dec. 12 at 8:00pm, and Mesabi on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 3:00pm.  Anoka-Ramsey is now 4-5 on the season.
