He followed that effort with a 15-point, career-high 14 rebound afternoon in an 80-67 verdict over Washington University. He wound up that contest six-of-eight from the floor, including three-of-four from beyond the arc, en route to posting his 17th double-figure scoring outing of the year, Schner has registered three straight and four double-doubles on the campaign.
