Eric Duick with the call on KWIX and centralmoinfo.com as Truman trimmed its deficit to 9-6 almost four minutes in. Truman threatened Augustana’s lead on several occasions in the first half, but the Vikings responded each time and entered the half up nine. Augustana then dominated the second half of its season opener. Truman coach Theo Dean shared what he told the Bulldogs postgame.
Augustana outscored Truman 20-9 in the third quarter. The Vikings committed just five turnovers and forced 13. Dean’s Bulldogs shot 39 percent from the field and 17 percent from three.
Dean said the nonconference loss to Augustana offers a chance to improve after 2-1 Truman played its toughest opponent to date.
