The Northern Michigan University Men's basketball team extended their winning streak to six games at Lake Superior State on Thursday, picking up a 102-69 victory.

The Green and Gold asserted themselves from three-point land early and often, connecting on 17 triples throughout the bout. It was one shy of tying the program record.

Northern improved to 15-11 on the campaign and 11-8 in the GLIAC.

NMU led, 48-34, at the half, and after Lake State closed to within 48-41, Wagner nailed his fourth triple of the night to start another run.

In all, NMU connected on 17 triples in the contest, one shy of tying the program record set in 2006-07 (vs. UW-Stout).

John Kerr (22), Max Bjorklund (21), and Wagner (20) all scored 20-plus for NMU. Kerr had a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Ben Wolf also registered a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Bjorklund led the team with six assists while Brian Parzych added four off the bench.

Eight Wildcats hit a three-pointer, led by Bjorklund with six and Wagner with five.

Malek Adams had 14 points for LSSU. David Wren added 13.

The Wildcats are now in a four-way tie for third place in the GLIAC (11-8, with LSSU, Grand Valley and Saginaw Valley), and they will head to Big Rapids to conclude the regular season as they'll take on the first place Ferris State Bulldogs on Saturday. Tip-off is schedule for 3 p.m.
