OSHKOSH - St. Norbert College shot a paltry 26.5 percent from the floor and lost to UW-Oshkosh 58-45 in a non-conference game at Kolf Sports Center.

The Green Knights (5-2) made just 13 of 49 field-goal attempts in having their modest five-game winning streak snapped. St. Norbert went 7 minutes 44 seconds in the first half without scoring and only had one field goal in the final 10:14 of the half to trail 42-20 at the break.

St. Norbert trailed 17-16 with 10:14 left in the half following a Joe Lemon 3-pointer. The Titans (6-3) then went on a 17-0 run to take a 34-16 lead with 4:14 left. St. Norbert got back to within 14 late in the half but Oshkosh closed the period on an 8-0 spurt.

The Green Knights held the Titans to 16 second-half points but would get no closer than the game's final score.

D.J. DeValk was the only St. Norbert player to reach double figures in scoring with 21 points.

Taylor Jansen came off the bench to score a team-high 17 points for the Titans, who shot 35.3 percent (18-for-51) from the floor.
