Walsh captures RNIT with comfortable win

Walsh (NAIA) 88, Ryerson 64   The Cavaliers dug in defensively, holding the Rams to only 16 points in the first 15 minutes of the game to grab a double digit lead and went on to shoot a sizzling 10 for 15 from downtown in the second half to pull away and win the Ryerson NIT going away over the host Rams.  Walsh shot 49% overall for the game and built a 21 point late-third-quarter lead before Ryerson had their best run, getting it down to 10 early in the fourth quarter.  However, the Cavaliers then awoke with a 22-5 run of their own, leading by as many as 27 as Lamar Skeeter led all scorers with 19 while sharpshooting Eric Schiele, as he did regularly in the tournament, came off the bench to go 4 for 8 from downtown and finished with 18 points for Walsh.  6'8" Matt Lapointe had 18 for Ryerson while fellow forward 6'7" freshman Bjorn Michaelsen added 10 before fouling out for the Rams.
