Men's Basketball: 'Roos busted by Tennessee Tech

Nathan Zoschke

Saturday’s 68-62 loss to Tennessee Tech in the Ramada BracketBuster isn’t what UMKC basketball fans had hoped for, but it was a continuation of the team’s losing season.

The ’Roos now stand 7-22 and 4-10 in the Summit League.

However, the game against Tennessee Tech had several bright spots for the team.

Nelson Kirksey led with 16 points, the second game in a row in which he has done so and third time in his career. Estan Tyler followed with 14 points.

Fred Chatmon cranked out a game-high 10 rebounds, his seventh double-digit rebound game of the season.

This week, the ’Roos will hit the road to play Western Illinois on Thursday in Macomb, Ill., before the final conference game against Indianapolis on March 2.
