"I was disappointed with our first half. In many ways I thought we lost the basketball game tonight in the first half. We put ourselves in a hole at halftime and we couldn't quite get a possession or two to get ourselves back within one or two possessions."

Wheaton shot 33.9 percent from the field.

Gerry Wixted led the Red Devils with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Adam Honig scored 17 points and Ted Hinnekamp added 10 points with 5 rebounds off the Red Devils' bench.
