MEQUON, Wis. - The men's hockey team (19-1-3, 15-0-3) extended their nation-leading unbeaten streak to 13 games after Justin Basso broke a 5-5 tie late in the third period to beat Concordia University (6-17, 6-12), 6-5, at the Ozaukee Ice Center on Saturday.

The No. 8-ranked Bulldogs were led by Josh Cousineau's four-point night.

Adrian would go up 3-1 after two periods compliments of Shaquille Merasty's 20th goal of the season and Cousineau's ninth on the power play.

With just 1:15 left, Basso would net his sixth of the season and the game winner from Grant Telfer.
