COLUMBIA -- A game-concluding 8-0 run sealed a victory for the Columbia College men's basketball team Friday as the sixth-ranked squad beat Benedictine College 66-58 to improve to 11-0.

The Cougar victory was aided by a 16-point effort from guard Devin Griffin and a 14-point, 12-rebound performance from forward Jordan Dressler.

The first half featured seven lead changes -- there were 15 in the game -- and ended with Columbia College on top 28-27. But it was the Ravens that held the advantage for much of the second half thanks in part to forward Charlie Wallrapp, who scored a game-high 25 points. The Cougars regained the lead with just under four minutes left but saw it slip away twice before going on an 8-0 run that included six points from Griffin to finish the game.

Columbia College capitalized on 20 Raven turnovers, resulting in 20 points.

The Cougars' next game is at home against Indiana University South Bend on Dec. 29.
