Mount Mercy 84, St. Ambrose 77: The St. Ambrose men's basketball team, seeded sixth in the Midwest Collegiate Conference Men's Tournament, pushed second-seeded and nationally 10th-ranked Mount Mercy Friday night in the tourney semifinals.

SAU (10-20) was as close as 59-58 with 8:00 left in the second half when Darren Galloway hit two free throws, but the Bees couldn't pull off the major upset.

Only six players scored for the Bees, led by 18 each from Galloway and reserve Matt Gossett. Nick Frazier and Moline product Justin Blondell, in his final game, scored 16 each. Gossett, Frazier and Sam Ainsworth (seven points) all grabbed six rebounds.

MMC's Bobby Sherwood lead all scorers with 21 points and Alex Coleman had a 17-point, 14-rebound double-double.

SAU 77, Clarke 54: The day's wait was worth it for the St. Ambrose Queen Bees as they scored the game's first 11 points in Friday's weather-delayed Midwest Collegiate Conference Women's Tournament quarterfinal game and were never challenged after that.

Third-seeded SAU (23-6) now travels for Sunday's 3 p.m. semifinal at No. 2 William Penn (19-9).

With a lopsided game, minutes and points were spread out for the Queen Bees. Sam Saladino had a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double for the Queen Bees. Fellow starters Lauren Cash popped for 16 points, Katie Jensen added 14 and Ashley Dexter added nine.
