COLUMBIA — The Columbia College men's basketball team was not perfect in Friday night's 89-52 victory over Ottawa University, but forward Jordan Dressler was.

The senior led the Cougars (4-0) with 19 points on 8-for-8 shooting. It was the first time he had pulled off perfection in a while.

"I remember I did it once in fifth grade," Dressler said.

Junior guard Derrick Dilworth had 17 points, but his most impressive plays came on the defensive side of the ball. After missing a lay-up, he sprinted full court to leap into the air and take away an Ottawa pass. It was one of his six steals.

Dilworth credited his defensive prowess to his football days.

"I played quarterback in high school," Dilworth said, "So seeing the floor is in my nature."

Senior guard Chase Dippel was the Braves' primary offensive threat, but he only managed seven points on 3-for-8 shooting while being closely guarded by Dilworth.

The suffocating defense — along with a .618 first half field goal percentage — allowed the game to swing in one direction quickly. By halftime, the score was 49-22 in favor of the Cougars.

The reserves held strong in the second half. Sophomore guard Zach Rockers led with 14 points and freshman guard Chantel Stanciel had five assists.

No timeouts were called by either side. As a result, the game lasted only 72 minutes, sending everyone home early.

The victory was coach Bob Burchard's 601st. He celebrated his 600-win milestone after last Wednesday's game at Central Methodist University.
