Coe makes final move in game of runs
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Tim Dunlavy (Bettendorf, Iowa/Bettendorf) turned in his fourth-consecutive double-double but Coe erased a six-point, second half deficit in a 76-62 win Saturday afternoon at Eby Fieldhouse.
Dunlavy scored a team-high 21 points and pulled down 13 rebounds for the Storm (6-18, 3-12 IIAC), who were seeking their third win in a row.
Dan Borngraeber scored a game-high 22 points to lead Coe (4-19, 2-12).
Trailing by as much as 15 in the first half, Simpson mounted a 19-3 run – including scoring 15 unanswered – eventually taking a six-point lead with 12:43 remaining in the game.
After a jumper from Dunlavy gave Simpson a 49-43 lead, the Kohawks scored 10 unanswered over the next six minutes, taking a four-point lead.
Dunlavy ended the Coe run with a jumper, bringing Simpson within a bucket at 53-51.
But another run by Coe put the game out of reach and the Kohawks hit 11 free throws down the stretch.
Simpson will close its season Saturday, Feb. 20 when it takes on Dubuque in a 4 p.m. tipoff in Dubuque.
