The Dominican University Men’s Basketball Team lost a close game to Aurora University this past week. The Stars started the game strong, building a 19-12 lead, but fell short losing to the Spartans 79-99.

The Spartans up-tempo style of play caused some problems for the Stars.

“We have to improve our transition defense,” said Head Coach, Mark White.

The Stars fell short again as they lost to Marian University over the weekend but, with three games remaining, the future looks bright.

“We have a very young and talented team,” White said. “I am optimistic about the future; I think the team is going to continue to improve each and every game.”

The Stars have had an up and down season, but the team has responded well.

“We have a resilient group of guys who work hard each and every game; their resiliency has put us in a lot of close games,” White said. “Each player is doing their job and contributing to the team in their own way.”

With two games remaining in the season, the Stars look to finish strong and end on a high note. Make sure to come and support the Stars as they show their grit against bitter rivals, and neighbors, Concordia University on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at the Igini Sports Forum.
