The Southwest Minnesota State wheelchair basketball team played host to the Madonna Magic for a trio of games over the weekend, finishing 2-1 in those contests.

The Mustangs played the Magic, a team based out of Lincoln, Neb., twice on Saturday and took the first game 53-46. The Magic then came back later that night to steal a 46-39 win in overtime.

The two teams played again Sunday morning, with SMSU pulling out a 52-41 victory. Derek Klinkner had 19 points in the game, going 6 of 8 from the field in the second half to lead the Mustangs to the win. David Nelson added 14 points for SMSU.

"I was pleased with the effort this weekend," SMSU head coach Lew Shaver said, "especially on the defensive end of the floor, as we held the Magic in the 40s all three games."

The Mustangs improve to 2-5 overall with the wins. They return to the court Nov. 17-18 at Wisconsin-Whitewater, where they will open action with two games against Edinboro.
