Rangers keep the pedal to the floor

SOMERS — Things went just about perfectly for the UW-Parkside men’s basketball team on Saturday afternoon at the DeSimone Gymnasium.

Before an appreciative crowd of 1,406 on Alumni Day, any worries that the 20th-ranked Rangers would suffer a hangover after Thursday’s scintillating win over top-ranked Indianapolis were quickly made to seem silly, as first-place Parkside routed last-place Saint Joseph’s 82-55 in a Great Lakes Valley Conference game.

Parkside has won 21 straight conference home games and 10 consecutive home games in all. The Rangers (18-2 overall) remain in a tie atop the GLVC East at 10-1 with No. 6 Bellarmine. Indianapolis, meanwhile, fell into second at 9-2 with its second straight loss Saturday, 70-61 at Lewis.

Reuther boys remain unbeaten in conference play

KENOSHA — An undefeated conference season is what coach Cliff McKenzie said the Reuther boys basketball team wanted most this season, and after routing Faith Christian 76-45 at home on Friday night it might just reach that goal.

The Bulldogs are 9-6 overall and sit atop the Indian Trails Conference Blue Division at 9-0. After winning just eight games all of last season, McKenzie said this season has been unexpected.

KENOSHA — Following his team’s colossal 72-68 Great Lakes Valley Conference win over top-ranked Indianapolis at the DeSimone Gymnasium on Thursday night, UW-Parkside men’s basketball coach Luke Reigel planned to celebrate in only the way that coaches do.

Atmosphere electric for Parkside’s big win

SOMERS — In his tenure as the UW-Parkside men’s basketball coach, now in its 12th season, Luke Reigel has endured his share of lean years.

The Rangers have traditionally been something of an afterthought, not respected around the Great Lakes Valley Conference like some of the league’s usual stalwarts. Reigel would talk about playing in crowded arenas with boisterous student sections, only to come home to the DeSimone Gymnasium, where you felt like you could count the attendance in about a minute.
