CORRY, Pa. – Northwestern outscored Eisenhower 21-10 in the fourth quarter to rally for a 54-44 win at the Jim Gruca Christmas Tournament.

Eisenhower had another big game for the Knights in the setback, pouring in a game-high 24 points.

Ryan Tewell drilled four triples for Northwestern on his way to a team-high 14 points, while Connor Dorr had 10 and Cam Perkins eight.

Curt Darling and Kael Hunt had seven apiece for Ike.

“I was proud of the second-half effort by our guys,” said Eisenhower coach Ryan Mangini. “The turnovers, at the end, we just couldn’t overcome. With region play starting next week, games like this will help us. We will be ready.”
