Stout men’s basketball has dropped their last two games, but they won an overtime thriller Tuesday, Nov. 24. The game was forced into overtime by an Isaac Elliott three pointer. He also sunk a critical free throw to break the 92-92 tie to give the Blue Devils the 93-92 win over Bethany Lutheran College. In their last game, the Blue Devils fell to Buena Vista University by 16 points. Stout will square off at home against The University of Northwestern Dec. 15, their last game before winter break.

They handled Hamline, winning 86-63 behind Sarah Schoch’s (Jr, Chippewa Falls, Wis.) hot shooting from beyond the arch. She scored an astonishing 25 points in only 21 minutes. The Blue Devils followed this win with a heart breaking 81-79 loss to St. Catherine. They will play Dubuque University Jan. 2.
Blue Devil Hockey split its last two games. In the first game, they put forth a lackluster effort against rival UW–Eau Claire losing 7-0 to the Blugolds. In their next game, they played with a lot more fire, beating UW–Superior 6-2. Goalie Chase Hollander (Jr, Port Washington, Wis.) had a critical save in the last period to keep the game 3-2 with the Blue Devils top. After this save, Stout turned on the gas to score three more goals in that period. The Blue Devils will play their next four games at home facing off against Concordia College (Minn.) Dec. 11.
