Nov. 14th, 2014

That didn’t take long. In just the second game of the 2014-15 season, the Urbana University men’s basketball team snapped the nation’s longest losing streak. The Blue Knights entered Saturday night’s contest against California University of Pennsylvania having lost 33 straight games, dating back to Valentine’s Day 2013. Urbana endured another nailbiter but triumphed over the Vulcans 86-85.

After five losses to end the 2012-13 season and an 0-27 record last season, rookie Head Coach Rob Summers turned the tide for the Blue Knights in just his second game at the helm. The win comes against a quality regional opponent coming off an 11-win season. Rodney Clark Jr. (pictured) was fantastic off the bench for the Blue Knights. In just his second game, he poured in a game-high 27 points in 25 minutes. The senior transfer shot 7 of 12 from the field, 13 of 15 from the charity stripe, and he managed to hand out five assists and grab four rebounds. Read More
