LAS VEGAS - The Hendrix College men's basketball team wrapped up the D3Hoops.com Classic with a 65-47 victory over Wisconsin Lutheran College at South Point Arena on Saturday night.

Hendrix also shot 50 percent (8-of-16) from 3-point range and went 7-of-13 at the free throw line. WLC went 3-of-11 from outside and 8-of-16 from the stripe. Hendrix had a 41-31 rebound advantage.

Senior guard Jaren Riley, who made the all-tournament team led Hendrix with 17 points and a career-high nine rebounds. Junior forward Colton Primm had 12 points, nine rebounds and two blocks and sophomore forward Luke Vance added seven points and eight rebounds. Freshman guard Alec Conard chipped in seven points off the bench and sophomore guard Nathan McCubbin added five points, five assists and three steals.

Hendrix will return to Southern Athletic Association play on Friday when it takes on Oglethorpe in Atlanta.
