The University of Findlay men's basketball team routed Ashland University by a score of 85-48 on Thursday, Jan. 23 in Croy Gymnasium behind a record-setting performance by senior forward Greg Kahlig.
Kahlig poured in a season-high 34 points during the victory and tied the school record for most made three pointers in a game with nine. He hit 11-of-18 shot attempts, connected on 9-of-13 triple tries and also added a game-high six assists in the victory.
The Ft. Recovery, Ohio native also moved into 15th place on the Oilers all-time scoring list with 1,477 points and shares the record for most made triples in a game with current Findlay assistant coach, Dustin Pfeifer. Pfeifer hit his nine three pointers against Hillsdale College on Feb. 28, 2006.
Red-shirt freshman center Quaran Jones had one of his most complete games of the season with ten points, five rebounds and a block in only 12 minutes of action off the bench while senior forward Mark Frilling posted nine points and six boards.
Sophomore guard Dylan Kaufman stuffed the stat sheet with seven points, three rebounds, two blocks and two steals while junior forward Jake Heagen had six points, five boards and two assists in the win.
The Oilers shot 58.3 percent (28-of-48) from the floor and hit 14-of-27 (51.9%) shot attempts from behind the three point line. Their defense also limited the Eagles to a mere 30.8 percent (16-of-52) shooting clip in the game.
Findlay, who moved to 12-3 on the year with an 8-3 mark in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC), will return to action on Saturday when they host Lake Erie College at 3 p.m. in Croy Gymnasium.
