Blue Raiders drop first game of the season 86-61
Bryan Wallace scores game high 24 points in loss
By Chris Coombs
Williamsburg, KY - Second-ranked Lindsey Wilson men's basketball dropped their first game of the season to No. 18 Cumberlands 86-61. The Patriots first half 27-7 run and an efficient 62.2 percent shooting percentage from the floor proved too much for LWC to handle.
The Blue Raiders (18-1, 4-1 Mid-South Conference) struggled from the floor as they recorded a season lows in field goal percentage (32.8), assists (4), points (61) and field goals made (19). The Patriots (16-3, 4-1 MSC) offense produced one of their best performances of the season shooting 58.3 percent from the floor, their second highest shooting percentage this season. Cumberlands also found their touch from beyond the arc, shooting their highest three-point percentage of the season at 62.5 percent hitting 10-of-16 attempts.
Bryan Wallace scored a game-high 24 points on 4-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc and a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe. Wallace added six rebounds and two steals. Charles Sutton was the only other Blue Raider in double figures with 15 points. Pepper Ben Ofokile added a team-high eight rebounds.
Lindsey Wilson opened the contest on a 7-3 run, but a quick 6-2 run by the Patriots brought things to a 9-9 tie early in the first half. From there the two teams traded baskets until the 11:52 mark, as the Blue Raiders found themselves trailing by just two points at 19-17. That prompted a 27-7 run by Cumberlands that lasted just over ten minutes and gave the Patriots a 46-25 lead with just 1:32 to go in the half. Both teams scored five points apiece during the final minute, giving Cumberlands a 51-30 lead at the break.
The Blue Raiders shot 36.0 percent (9-for-25) in the opening half. Wallace hit the Blue Raiders only three shots from beyond the arc. Cumberlands shot 77.0 percent from the floor (20-for-26) connecting on 7-of-10 attempts from beyond the arc.
Lindsey Wilson opened the second half outscoring the Patriots 14-9 over the first five and a half minutes. The Blue Raiders then went on a 9-2 run, propelled by two Sutton baskets that cut Cumberlands lead to just 11 at 62-51 with 11:37 left in the half.
The Patriots responded with a 14-3 run of their own that lasted just over five minutes and increased their lead to 22 with just under six minutes to play. Cumberlands outscored LWC 9-7 over the final minutes of the game to hand Lindsey Wilson its first loss of the season at 85-61.
Eric Duncan led all Patriots scoring 20 points on 5-of-6 shooting including a perfect 3-for-3 from beyond the arc. Malik Colvin-Seldon added 17 points as Chance Morton had 15 off the bench. Kaashif English recorded eight rebounds and a game-high three steals.
