Saint Francis men upset in tourney

The stat sheet says senior guard Rob Hogans missed six shots for Spring Arbor on Wednesday night, and that he missed four 3-pointers, and that, at some point, the hoop gods actually looked the other way when he wrapped his hands around the basketball.

Yeah. Right.

If they did, the look away was a fleeting glance at best, and no one could bear better witness to that than the Saint Francis Cougars. They had a front-and-center seat as Hogans scored 20 of his game-high 25 points in the second half and No..7 seed Spring Arbor shot 60 percent to send the No. 2 seed Cougars reeling out of the Crossroads League tournament, 63-55.

Not the outcome anyone on the home end of the Hutzell Athletic Center saw coming.

"No, not at all," Saint Francis coach Chad LaCross said. "I thought we'd battled, we'd won four games in a row to put ourselves in great position. I thought we'd play real loose tonight, and it was completely opposite.

"We acted like we wanted no part of the game."
