Balanced attack leads Lindsey Wilson Men's Basketball past Warren Wilson 136-87

COLUMBIA, KY - (Sat 25 Nov 2017) Seven Blue Raiders scored in double figures as the Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team raced past Warren Wilson (NC) 136-87 on Saturday night at Biggers Sports Center.

The 136 points are a new season-high for the Blue Raiders.

Bryan Wallace led the way in scoring with a career-high 29 points on 9-of-12 shooting and an 8-for-8 mark from the charity stripe. Kel Stotts also posted a new career-high with 26 points, hitting five three pointers in the process. Can Oztamur set a career-high with 20 points, while Charles Sutton and Allen Costley both set season-highs with 18 and 17 points, respectively.

Sutton finished one rebound and one assist shy of a triple-double. Nic Brown posted his third double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds, while Jordan Hamlette was the final Blue Raider in double figures with 11.

No. 21-ranked Lindsey Wilson (9-0) started the game perfect, scoring the first 15 points of the contest and making their first 10 shots from the floor to take a 21-6 lead just under six minutes into the contest. The Blue Raiders continued to lead by double digits until Warren Wilson (4-4) trimmed it back to single digits at 30-21 with 9:26 to go in the opening half. That prompted a 13-5 run that lasted just under 2-1/2 minutes from Lindsey Wilson to extend the lead to 43-26 with a little over seven minutes to go.

Warren Wilson was unable to cut it back to single digits again as the Blue Raiders built as large as a 23-point lead following a pair of Costley free throws with 34 seconds to go in the half.

Lindsey Wilson shot 61.5 percent from the floor in the first half, hitting 6-of-11 attempts from deep with 32 points coming in the paint en route to the 65-44 halftime advantage. Warren Wilson shot 48.5 percent and hit 9-of-17 attempts from three-point range.

The Blue Raiders continued their hot shooting in the second half, needing just over 10 minutes to eclipse the century mark, part of a 36-15 run to start the frame that made it 101-59 after a Wallace field goal. LWC had multiple runs within that stretch, including 11-straight points.

Lindsey Wilson was in complete control the remainder of the game as the Blue Raiders closed out the night with the 49-point victory.

LWC dominated the game inside, outrebounding Warren Wilson 55-26 in total rebounds, while outscoring the Owls 70-32 in points in the paint. The Blue Raiders also made 27-of-32 attempts from the free throw stripe.

Merault Almonor had 14 points in the loss for Warren Wilson, one of six Owls in double figures.
