DE PERE - St. Norbert College shot the ball at a blistering pace to claim an 89-60 non-conference win over UW-Eau Claire at Schuldes Sports Center.

The Green Knights (6-1) opened the game making 33 of its first 46 field-goal attempts (71.7 percent) to build an 87-46 lead with 3:26 remaining. St. Norbert finished the game shooting 63.0 percent (34-for-54) from the floor.

St. Norbert went on an 14-4 run to take a 16-9 lead 6 1/2 minutes into the game. A conventional three-point play by Terrence Garner, a 3-pointer by Ben Bobinski and a pair of 3-pointers by Taylor Penn fueled the run.

St. Norbert then went on a 17-5 run over the first five minutes of the second half to lead 56-33 and had complete control of the game at that point. Eau Claire (5-4) didn't get closer than 21 points the rest of the way.
