MASON CITY - The Iowa Central men were unable to keep up with North Iowa Area here Wednesday night in the second half, falling 76-60.
"We had another nice first half just like Saturday against Indian Hills," Iowa Central head coach Chad Helle said. "But we came out in the second half and didn't execute - just like against Indian Hills. We've got to do a better job on the defensive end of the court."
The Tritons led 33-27 at the break thanks to shooting 44 percent from the field. That number slipped to 36 in the second half when NIACC outscored them 49-27.
McKelary Robertson led the Trojans with a game-high 20.
Iowa Central is off until Tuesday when they travel to Council Bluffs to face Iowa Western.
