University of Illinois Springfield senior guard Daniel Soetan sparked a 9-0 run with a 3-pointer past midway with under seven minutes remaining and the Stars snapped a five-game losing streak with a 95-88 Great Lakes Valley Conference victory over Lindenwood at The Recreation and Atheltic Center.

Soetan finished with a team high 22 points, shooting 10 for 13 from the floor, along with six rebounds and six assists.

Chase Robinson and Soetan helped UIS to a 53.3 field goal percentage in the first half.

Jesus Castillo followed up Soetan’s trey in the second half with another 3-pointer and Robinson converted the old-fashioned three-point play to put the Stars ahead by double digits.
