The February 5, 2010 men’s basketball game marked the 2,000 game in the program’s history at Washington University. Attendance fell well short of the 2,000 fan goal with a total of 1,310 according to the official box score. A light snow fall or any of a number of other factors could have contributed.
Fans who came out to the game received Wash. U. pom-poms. The Bears were down for only a short while when Rochester’s Bill Serle knocked down a three pointer for a two point advantage with 14:21 left in the second half. The Bears came back with a three pointer by Aaron Thompson. From that point on, Wash. U. controlled the game never yielding the lead enroute to a 68-59 victory. Thompson finished with 29 points in the game.
