Tribune-Star staff report
----

MILWAUKEE — Rose-Hulman won the Milwaukee School of Engineering men’s basketball All-Engineers Classic with a strong defensive effort in a 55-28 victory over the host Raiders on Sunday.

Julian Strickland led the balanced scoring attack with 10 points. Austin Weatherford added nine points, six rebounds and four assists.

Jon Gerken scored seven points with five rebounds and Brenton Balsbaugh, Jake Dodd and Alec Houpt added five points each. Nate Gissentanner had six rebounds.

The story of the game was Rose-Hulman’s defensive effort, however. The Engineers held MSOE to just eight points in the first half and 2-for-20 shooting from the field. For the game, Rose-Hulman allowed just 17-percent shooting, 15 percent from 3-point range.

The Engineers led 17-4 early, had a 26-8 advantage at halftime and were up 43-13 near the midpoint of the second half.

Rose-Hulman travels to Carroll, which advanced to the second round of the 2012 NCAA Division III tournament, in suburban Milwaukee on Tuesday.
