SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

In a game that included over 15 3-pointers, numerous blocks, and even a technical foul, No. 12-seeded Ole School defeated top-seeded UISSC to take the All-University title Wednesday night in the Field House, 83-72.

UISSC, the heavy favorite as the No. 1 squad, stayed true to the group’s game with balanced scoring and tough defense.

With ample success in intramural sports over the past couple years, many knew of UISSC’s athletic prowess.

Now, the news is out on Ole School.

Five players on the perceived underdog team scored in the double digits. Josh Luerkens, who led Ole School with 18 points, pointed to a great second-half performance by his team, which was down 36-30 at halftime.

“We stepped up and made plays when we had to,” he said. “We played tough ‘D’ and made some big shots down the stretch.”

Ole School also got big contributions from Kingsley Botchway, who had 14 points and eight rebounds, and guard Philip Spanheimer, who recorded 16 points — including two clutch 3-pointers in the last two minutes of the contest.

Andre Murphy led UISSC with 24 points. Nick Kron chipped in 10.

“They were more aggressive than we were for the most part,” Kron said. “It’s not really an upset, and we’re not buying the underdog story. The outcome proves that.”
