The Warriors raised their CLC record to 9-4 (13-6 overall). Howards fell to 8-5 in the league (12-7 overall).

Ozaukee, which trailed 20-14 at halftime, had an 18-2 run to start the third period as it built a 32-22 lead. The Warriors scored on eight of their first nine possessions in the quarter and led 33-24 going into the fourth.

The Tigers mounted a comeback in the final period – outscoring Ozaukee 21-14 – but fell short.

Howards led by as many as seven in the first half. The Tigers had a 7-0 spurt to take an 18-11 lead with 4:55 left in the second period. Ethan Brinkman’s three-point play off a fast-break layup keyed the run.

Sophomore guard Hunter Bensing Radtke ignited the Warriors’ offense with a game-high 17 points, including five three-point goals. Brinkman and Austin Edge led Howards in scoring with 16 and 15, respectively.

“We had some defensive breakdowns in the third quarter. I give Ozaukee credit, they took advantage of our defensive mistakes,” said Tiger head coach Mark Christenson.

“They stepped up their defensive pressure, we had some key turnovers and missed some good looks in the third quarter.

“I was pleased with our defense except for that run in the third quarter. Brevin Scholten had a very good defensive game,” said Christenson.

Davis Nennig paced Tiger rebounders with eight. Garrett Jahnke had a team-high three steals.
