DE PERE - St. Norbert College held Monmouth College just 30.4 percent shooting from the floor and rolled to a 75-47 Midwest Conference win at Schuldes Sports Center.

The Green Knights (3-0, 1-0 MWC) held the Fighting Scots (1-2, 0-1) to just 17-for-56 marksmanship from the field. St. Norbert shot 53.8 percent (28-for-52) from the floor and outrebounded Monmouth 38-25.

Andrew Schwoerer, Steven Hofacker and Bryan Dalton scored baskets for a 35-24 lead, and Dalton followed with another jumper. Hofacker then canned another basket and Schwoerer made a pair of free throws with 3 seconds left to give the Green Knights a 41-24 lead at intermission.

Hofacker made a couple of free throws for the first points of the second half, and Monmouth would get no closer than 19 points the rest of the way. St. Norbert held a 30-point bulge with 3:12 left for its biggest lad of the game.
