Augustana's JV six-shooters had more than enough ammunition to gun down the Black Hawk College men Tuesday night at the Carver Center.

And it wasn't just the 91-77 loss that left BHC coach Darren Bizarri smoking.

"It's just a different style of basketball,'' said Bizarri of the physical game in which just 12 of the 30 fouls in the game were called on Augie. "There was a lot of wrestling and stuff inside than isn't allowed in normal basketball games.''

Because of the style, Bizarri had a difficult time criticizing his players for much other than not being able to play through the way the game was officiated.

"We would struggle to play that style the rest of our schedule,'' said Bizarri after his club dropped to 3-4, all four losses on the road.

The Augie JV unit went with just six players in their second game of the season. The Vikings (1-1) have to be wary of who plays because of NCAA limits on games played. All six JV players have already seen varsity time this young season and will see more of it up to their 25-game limit. Four other freshmen were held out for exclusive varsity action.

That left guards Jake Norcia (20 points, five assists, three steals) and Jawan Straughter (15 points, nine assists, three rebounds) playing all 40 minutes. Former United Township prep Nic Hoepfner led all scorers with 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Vikings before seeing time in the varsity game. Brandon Motzel added 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Jake Gylten added 11 points. Sophomore Alex Dziagwa had eight points and 10 rebounds.

Cody Cooley led BHC with 18 points. Austin Long, just back from an ankle sprain, added 14 off the bench thanks to 4-of-6 3-point shooting. Deqwon Horn added 10.

Augie outrebounded the Braves 45-28.
