Ancilla Routs Concordia in Season Opener

November 2, 2011

  FORT WAYNE, IN – The Ancilla College men’s basketball team was dominant in its season opener on Tuesday, coasting to a 109-46 victory at Concordia Theological Seminary.


Five players scored in double figures for Ancilla (1-0), led by sophomore Joby Renbarger’s 24 points on 11-of-14 shooting from the floor.


“It was good to get contributions from our entire roster tonight,” said Ancilla head basketball coach Greg Neeley.  “We had great balance and played unselfish.”


Freshman Jordan Coe added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Chargers, who broke an early 12-12 tie and went on to lead 55-29 at the half.  Darrell Freeman added 16 points while Chris Holt finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds.


Jazz Drane added 14 points for Ancilla.


The Chargers limited Concordia to just 17 points in the second half and forced the hosts into 33 turnovers on the night.


“Our focus and effort was much better in the second half,” said Neeley.  “Our guys did a good job of making adjustments and focusing on the details.”


Ancilla will resume play on November 7 when they host the Grace College junior varsity at the LifePlex in Plymouth.  Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
