BELOIT - St. Norbert College had about as good a start as you can have in a road game and used it as the impetus behind an 86-60 win over Beloit College in a Midwest Conference game at Flood Arena.

The Green Knights (11-2, 8-0 MWC), ranked No. 23 in the D3hoops.com Top 25, won for the 52nd consecutive time against a Midwest Conference opponent.

St. Norbert jumped out to leads of 12-0 and 20-4 to take control. Tim Marshall and Terrence Garner both had a pair of baskets during the Green Knights' initial run, with Seth Taylor's layup at the 13:01 mark giving the Green Knights a 12-0 lead. Ben Bobinski's hoop with 10:19 left
in the half but St. Norbert ahead 20-4, with Beloit going 1-for-11 from the floor in that stretch.

Beloit got to within 14 at 23-9 but St. Norbert slowly built its lead up to 45-19 with 3:01 left in the half on a basket by Brian Luteyn. Garner's basket at the end of the half sent the Green Knights into the locker room ahead 49-28.

St. Norbert went ahead by 31 with 14:39 remaining on a D.J. DeValk jumper for a 63-32 lead. The Green Knights never led by less than 23 points the rest of the way.

The Green Knights shot 52.4 percent (33-for-63) from the floor and outrebounded the Buccaneers 45-23. Taylor led the Green Knights with 17 points off the bench. Bobinski added 16 points and Garner had 12 points and 10 rebounds.
