Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Shooting woes as Buccaneers drop close contest in conference opener

November 29, 2010 at 12:17 pm

 

The Beloit College Men's Basketball team made their 2010-11 home debut in Flood Arena but the familiar baskets weren't very friendly. A low shooting percentage went a long way to a 60-57 loss to Lake Forest College in the Midwest Conference opener for both squads.

The Bucs jumped out quickly, building a 10-3 lead after five-plus minutes, but LFC battled back with an 11-4 run to even the score at 14-all with 10:47 remaining in the half.

Beloit got their lead back up to five at 21-16 with 6:42 left on a David Bremner lay-up before the Foresters closed the half on a 13-4 run to take a 29-25 advantage into the break.

Lake Forest kept up the pressure to open the second half and built the lead to nine, the largest by either team in the game, at 34-25 less than two minutes in. The Buccaneers responded with a 15-7 run over the next six minutes to cut the deficit to one at 41-40 on Travis Towns' jumper.

Beloit finally retook the lead at the 9:32 mark on James Lazarcik's lay-in, making it 47-46, and pushed the lead up to five points at 51-46 with 8:27 left in regulation.  LFC scored five unanswered points to tie it at 51-51 with 7:14 left.

The game would see three ties in the last four-plus minutes.  The Bucs took their last lead at 57-55 with 1:39 left on a Patrick Kenny jumper but that was it for the Beloit scoring down the stretch.  LFC tied it at 57-all with 1:07 left and then hit what proved to be the game-winner off an offensive rebound with 37 seconds left.  They added a free throw with nine seconds remaining for the final score.

Bremner's three-pointer from the right wing just missed forcing overtime as the buzzer sounded.

For the game Beloit shot just 37.3 percent from the field (22-59), including just 26.5 percent (9-34) in the opening half. Lake Forest shot 48 percent for the game and won the rebound battle 36-31.

Bremner led the Buccaneer scoring with 11 points while Tyler Butke added a career-high ten.  Michael Horton had a career-high 12 assists, tying him with two others for the third-most assists in a game in Flood Arena history.

Beloit has the week off before getting back into MWC play with a doubleheader weekend, hosting Monmouth College at 7 p.m. on Friday and Illinois College on Saturday at 4 p.m.
