COLUMBIA, KY - (Mon 20 Nov 2017) - The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team continued its perfect start to the 2017-18 campaign with a 99-75 victory over Simmons College of Kentucky on Monday night at Biggers Sports Center.
Five Blue Raiders ended up with double-digit points led by Bryan Wallace's 22. Kel Stotts followed with 19, Charles Sutton had 12, and Nic Brown and Allen Costley both had 10, Costley grabbing a team-high eight rebounds.
Simmons (2-6) came out aggressive in the first half, using a full court press defense after every made basket. Lindsey Wilson (8-0) was able to break the press early, building a 12-5 lead. The Falcons cut things back to a two-point contest at 14-12, but that drew a 16-4 run from the Blue Raiders to go up 30-16 with 9:03 to play in the half.
That lead was extended to 17 after a dunk from Hannes Erhardt made it 37-20. A short time later, Wallace stole a pass and scored a fast-break layup to make it 46-29.
Following a Brown rejection, Sutton made a free throw to give Lindsey Wilson its largest lead of the half at 47-29 with 1:53 to go.
By the end of the first half, Lindsey Wilson led the up-and-down contest 49-34. The Blue Raiders shot 50.0 percent from the floor and 3-of-9 from three. The Falcons shot 31.0 percent from the floor while jacking up 21 attempts from beyond the arc, connecting on six of them.
Stotts had 13 of his 19 points at the break, hitting all five of his attempts from the floor.
Lindsey Wilson opened the second half on a 9-3 run, capped off by a Stotts jumper that made it 58-37. Simmons came back with a 12-4 run to trim the lead down to 13 points at 62-49.
The two teams continued to trade punches as each side had an answer for an opponent basket, but the Blue Raiders were able to maintain their double-digit lead throughout the second half. Simmons continued to hang around and tried to cut it to single digits, trimming the lead to 81-67, but that sparked a 15-0 Blue Raider run over a three-minute span to put the game out of reach in the final minutes.
James Mosley led the Falcons with 20 points in the loss.
