Men's Basketball - Thu, Dec. 8, 2011
Davenport was coming into the contest after breaking its school record for consecutive wins (11), after defeating Sienna Heights by 43 points, 104-61. DU is a member of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC), and is a regular championship contender.
The Saints jumped out ahead early, taking small leads of 4 and 5 points courtesy of junior Yama Kader (Mission Viejo, California), who supplied a considerable amount of the Saints offense.
DU tied the game at 17-17 midway through the opening period, and took a halftime lead of 45-31 into the locker room. The second half was more of a continuation of the first half, as the Panthers outscored the Saints 60-26 in the second period and rolled to a 105-57 victory. The Panthers had four players in double figures.
Holy Cross was lead by Yama Kader, who scored 15 points in just 19 minutes of action. Darrell McIntyre (Indianapolis, Indiana) scored a career-high 14 points, and pulled down 3 boards during the game. Senior Taylor Williams (South Bend, Indiana), chipped in 9 points and 4 rebounds.
