Earning redemption: Van Tubbergen leads GVSU men's basketball in 'revenge' victory over Davenport

According to Grand Valley State senior point guard Chris Dorsey, there was only one mentality that he—and the rest of the men’s basketball team—had coming into the Saturday, Feb. 10, matchup against Davenport University: revenge. Revenge is what the Lakers got as they topped Davenport (11-13 overall, 5-11 GLIAC) 79-68 at the GVSU Fieldhouse Arena to improve their overall record to 12-12 (7-9 GLIAC).
