Miller time: Men's Hoops back on track with victory

Sophomore guard Riley Miller sank five 3-pointers and closed with a career-high 22 points to lead No. 9-ranked Tommie Men's Basketball to Wednesday night's 77-64 conference victory at Carleton.

The Toms raced to a 10-0 lead and went into halftime ahead 45-28. The Knights pulled within 61-51 with 9:40 to go, but St. Thomas freshman Will Engels hit a 3-pointer and a basket, and Miller and Burt Hedstrom each sank a trey to lead an 11-0 Tommie run that pushed the lead to 72-51,

Hedstrom matched his career high with 16 points, and the junior added a career-best nine rebounds.

Sophomore guard Anders Nelson played just 17 minutes due to foul trouble and fouled out with seven points. Senior Elijah Hannah chipped in seven points, five boards, two assists and two steals off the bench.

Isaac Tessier scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Knights, who had a two-game win streak snapped.
