In front of a packed house in Omaha on Monday night, Concordia was able to punch their ticket to state lead by 22 points from Karsten Mathsen. Here are my takeaways on the game, the standouts from both teams, and what kind of impact Concordia will have down in Lincoln next week.

Mathsen lead both teams with 22 points last night, shooting 4/6 from 3pt range and 4 of those coming in the first half. In a spot where it was tough for Concordia to score, and North Bend starting off hot, Mathsen came to the rescue scoring 14 of his 22 points in the first half. Scoring 13ppg so far this season, and shooting about 40% from 3pt, he is not a matchup you want to see down in Lincoln.
