Wentzien missed two games last month after injuring his collarbone and sternum in a game against Ellsworth, but he's relatively healthy now and ready for the stretch run.
Wentzien tossed in 28 points and grabbed six rebounds Wednesday night as the 12th-ranked Eagles pulled away from NIACC, 81-63, in a conference game at Johnson Hall.
Wentzien was hit in the jaw by an errant elbow Wednesday and needed a few moments to shake it off, but otherwise said he feels good as the season has moved into March.
