DE PERE - Leading scorer Kam Cerroni was in street clothes on the bench Saturday for St. Norbert. His teammates had more than enough firepower to take down Knox. The Green Knights blew out the Prairie Fire 87-51. Andrew Schwoerer, who started in place of Cerroni, scored 22 of his game high 26 points in the first half as the 8th ranked team in the country accumulated a 36-18 halftime advantage. Schwoerer also pulled down a game high 12 rebounds.

Reserves Tyler Pauley and Austin Elliot were the other Green Knights to reach double figures in points. They scored 12 and 10 respectively. The win is the 15th consecutive victory for St. Norbert. They are now 17-1 on the season and 13-0 in Midwest Conference play.

The St. Norbert women's team had an equally successful day. They rolled up a program record 110 points to best Knox 110-76. Heidi Van Sistine led all scorers with 24 points. Stephanie Weigman added 15 points. Lauren Carman scored 14 points. Brianna Byrne added 13 points, while Morgan Heim added 10. The Green Knights scored all those points without the help of a three pointer. They didn't attempt a single trifecta in the game.

St. Norbert improves to 14-4 this season and 11-2 in the Midwest Conference.
