The ThunderWolves' revenge tour is complete. The Pack knocked off Nebraska-Kearney Saturday by a score of 70-54, securing the team's second RMAC Championship title in the past three seasons and giving them an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Tournament, its second such berth in school history.
The Pack controlled the Lopers defensively, holding Kearney to a paltry .284 shooting percentage, and used their dominance to hold a lead from nearly the opening of the game.
The Pack opened things up with a 6-0 run, and Kearney answered with a 12-0 run to take a lead. But the Pack responded with a 12-4 run and never relinquished its lead.
The Pack's win completes a whirlwind three-game trek to the championship in which they knocked off Mesa State, Fort Lewis and Kearney, which combined post a 5-0 record against the ThunderWolves. Kearney defeated the Pack on Jan. 3 by a 77-71 score, turning over the Pack's 13-point lead with five minutes remaining to stun the ThunderWolves.
