UIS men make strong finish in win over Drury

It’s still a work in progress, but the University of Illinois Springfield men’s basketball team is showing it can close out a game.

UIS shut the door on Drury in the final two minutes of a Great Lakes Valley Conference game for a 75-70 win Saturday at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

The Stars have a 7-2 record in the last nine games and are riding a three-game winning streak.

“We’ve bought into the defensive things and we’re guarding,” UIS coach Ben Wierzba said. “When you guard, you put yourselves in position to win games and we’re doing that.”

The win was featured in an January 22, 2012, article in The State Journal-Register.
