ALLIANCE, Ohio– No. 11 ranked Mount Union defeated Heidelberg 93-80 to clinch at least a share of the Ohio Athletic Conference men’s basketball regular season title and the No. 1 in seed in the OAC Tournament Saturday at the MAAC.

The Purple Raiders have now won 12 games in a row and stand at 20-3 overall and 15-1 in the OAC. It marks the fifth 20-win season in school history with four of them coming over the last seven seasons.

Bower-Malone had a game-high 22 points and seven assists and Friga finished with a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds to lead Mount Union. The Raiders also got 17 points from Collen Gurley (Akron / Hoban) and 14 from junior Logan Hill (Massillon / Jackson).
