Junior center Conner Nord had 15 points and No. 12-ranked St. Thomas (6-1) had only five turnovers and shot 58 percent from the floor in Saturday night's 92-57 men's basketball win over Bethany Lutheran (1-7) at Schoenecker Arena.

The Tommies have won six in a row this season and pushed their home win streak to 24. They had 13 different players score points, sank 11 3-pointers, and also converted 21-of-24 at the foul line. 

The Vikings pulled within 24-21 with 8:00 to play in the first half. But UST answered as seven players scored during a 25-4 run over a 7:00 span built a 49-25 lead.

Cortez Tillman scored 12 points and Dylan Stewart added 10 for the Tommies, who had a 49-12 advantage in bench scoring and a 32-23 rebounding edge.

Jacob Wensmann scored a game-high 23 points for the Vikings.

St. Thomas plays Dec. 21 at No. 1-ranked UW-Stevens Point to close the December portion of its schedule.
