— UW-Rock County couldn’t handle Madison Area Technical College and tumbled 76-61 in a Wisconsin Junior College Athletic Association Western Division men’s basketball tournament final here Wednesday.

UW-Rock concluded the season at 12-13.


The Rattlers trailed 46-32 at the half and couldn’t shrink the deficit in the second half, despite holding MATC to 30 points.


“We did a nice job on defense in the second half, but we could not get over the hump,” UW-Rock coach Scott Lee said.


Brian Bland scored 19 points, including five three-point baskets to pace the Rattlers. Fred Stewart and Corey Kramer scored 12 points and Lance Dunwiddie chipped in 11 points for UW-Rock.


Keith Nueberger, Mitch Morwood, Dunwiddie and Matt Hilt played their last game for UW-Rock. Each will continue on to four-year colleges.
