SVSU Men fall at Northwood, 71-58

MIDLAND -- Playing in the final contest of the 2018-19 season, the SVSU Men's Basketball team faced Northwood University on the road Thursday night. The Timberwolves, fighting for a GLIAC postseason berth, would come out and defeat the Cardinals by a final score of 71-58 at NU's Riepma Arena.

The first half began all Northwood, as the Timberwolves built an 11-point lead and led by eight points (27-19) with just 2:07 remaining in the first half.

Saginaw Valley chipped-away at that lead, however, using consecutive layups from Sebastiano Lamonato and a three-pointer from Myles Belyeu to make the score 27-26 in NU's favor.

Darnell Hoskins Jr., Lamonato and Belyeu all led the way through the opening 20 minutes with seven points. Belyeu had a game-high seven rebounds in the first half as well. 

A Belyeu layup with 15:45 to play knotted the score at 33-33 but the T-Wolves would work their way back out to a double digit lead at 51-40 with 7:10 showing on the clock. 

The lead would reach as much as 14 points and Northwood would end up finishing-off for the 13-point victory, 71-58.
