Romback Double-Double Secures Tech Win

Romback Double-Double Secures Tech Win

CANTON, Ohio - Sophomore Phil Romback recorded his first career double-double (16 points, 11 rebounds) to lead the Michigan Tech men's basketball team to a 71-58 win at Malone to open GLIAC play Thursday (Nov. 29).

"We challenged Phil, and he has really stepped up," said head coach Kevin Luke. "To come out and score a double-double on the road in league play is a good night's work."

The Huskies slowly built a lead over the first half that culminated at 10 points, 29-19, by halftime. The Tech lead would grow to as many as 22 points in second half, but full court pressure from Malone caused numerous Tech turnovers. Tech, who shot 68-percent in the second half, out-scored Malone 42-39 over the final 20 minutes for the 13 point win.

Ali Haidar scored a team-high 22 points and junior Austin Armga added 15. Freshman Luke Heller, who was celebrating his 19th birthday, finished with four points for the first points of his career.

Isiah Elliott scored a game-high 24 points for the Pioneers.

The Huskies (3-1, 1-0) struggled from the free throw line shooting just 60-percent (15-25), but finished with a 36-30 lead in rebounds.

Tech will play at Walsh Saturday (Dec. 1).
