The Augustana men's basketball team suffered its first loss of the season on Saturday and will have plenty of opportunities to show if it learned anything on a tough trip to 7th-ranked UW-Stevens Point.

This week's men's games: Today: Augustana JV at Black Hawk, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday: Knox at Augustana, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday: Clinton at Black Hawk, 7:30 p.m. Thursday: Augustana at Fontbonne, 7 p.m. Saturday: Olive Hardy at Black Hawk, 3 p.m. Sunday: Augustana at MacMurray, 4 p.m.

This week's women's games: Tuesday: Iowa Central at Black Hawk, 6 p.m. Wednesday: Augustana at UW-Platteville, 7 p.m. Friday: Black Hawk at College of Lake County, 6 p.m. Saturday: Augustana at Central, 2 p.m., Grinnell at St. Ambrose, 2 p.m., Black Hawk at Moraine Valley, 2 p.m.

Stat note: In Saturday's 74-61 setback to 6th-ranked Washington University, the Augustana women's team shot 46.7-percent from the 3-point line, hitting seven of 15 trey tries. For the season, the Vikings are shooting 30.6 percent (38-of-124) from 3-point arc. Augie is led by Molly Etheridge, who is 15 of 37 (40.5 percent).
