Mazurczak a ‘flat-out winner’


SOMERS — Andy Mazurczak made UW-Parkside men’s basketball history Saturday in the 23rd-ranked Rangers’ 93-57 Great Lakes Valley Conference home victory over Rockhurst.

A four-year starter, the win improved Mazurczak’s career record to 87-23 — matching Stevie King (87-37 from 1974-78) for the most victories by a Parkside player.

“It’s cool that I can make an impact at the school. That’s what I want to be known as is a winner — that’s all that matters,” the Norridge, Ill., native said after tallying 12 points and 10 rebounds, both team-highs. “But to me right now, I want to win in March, so that’s all I’m looking for. Then I’ll be happy with that. That’s what I want to do. But I’m just happy I can make an impact at this school.”
