COLUMBUS, Neb. – Backed by a season-high 31 points from Emmette Page (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) the Northeast Community College men's basketball team overcame a five-point deficit at halftime to defeat Central Community College 81-73 Wednesday night at the Raider Fieldhouse in Columbus, Neb.
Despite playing only 26 minutes due to foul trouble, the freshman point-guard had no problem burying eight 3-pointers on 11-of-18 shooting from the field. Page also recorded four rebounds and two assists in the win.
The Hawks (11-10) shot 44 percent from the field, while holding Central to 39 percent.
Northeast returns to conference action tomorrow night as they welcome Marshalltown Community College for a 7 p.m. tip-off at the Cox Activities Center in Norfolk.
