End run makes Rangers winners


SOMERS — Despite having one of the top NCAA Division II programs in the Midwest, UW-Parkside has not had much luck in recent seasons against another big-time Division II school, Michigan Tech.

That changed on Saturday afternoon at DiSimone Gymnasium where the Rangers executed their game-plan to near perfection in the final minutes to pull out a 69-62 non-conference victory over the Huskies.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak to Michigan Tech (5-3) and helped the Rangers improve to 8-1 in their final game of 2014.
