Pointer Men's Title Defense Begins on the Road

STEVENS POINT (Press Release) – The UW-Stevens Point men's basketball team will travel for the opening rounds of the 2011 NCAA Division III Tournament, but won't have to go far. 

The Pointers will head to south eastern Wisconsin and play St. Norbert College on Friday, March 4 at Concordia (Wis.), located in Mequon. 

The Pointers faced the Green Knights of St. Norbert in last year's second round, defeating the Midwest Conference Champions 63-48. St. Norbert defeated Hope in the first round of last year's tournament in Stevens Point 72-65. 

The other first round match-up will feature the host Falcons of Concordia-Wisconsin, an at-large selection out of the Northern Athletics Conference against the Norse of Luther College in Iowa, winners of the IIAC automatic bid.
