LWC men at home; women's basketball travels to Bethel tonight
By Brady Budke
The Lindsey Wilson men's and women's basketball teams return to the court tonight, but in two seperate locations. The men's team will play a home game against Cumberland (TN) at Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY, beginning at 5:30pmCT, while the women's team will hit the road to battle Bethel (TN) with action starting at 5pmCT.
Live video and live stats will be available for both games. Please view the Lindsey Wilson and Bethel attendance protocols for more information.
On the women's side, Bethel won the earlier meeting over Lindsey Wilson back on Nov. 21. For the men, Cumberland claimed victory in the conference matchup this season on Jan. 4.
Bethel (11-11, 6-9 MSC) enters tonight after grabbing a recent victory over Life (Ga.) back on Saturday.
The duo of Mickey Head and Ever Walker lead the Wildcats attack on both ends of the floor. Head guides the team in points per game (12.6), rebounds per game (7.8), and blocks per game (2.5). Walker has corralled the team-high in assists per game (2.2) and steals per game (1.1). As a team, the Wildcats lead the Mid-South Conference in total blocks (91) and blocks per game (4.3).
Lindsey Wilson (16-4, 11-4 MSC) grabbed an easy win over Georgetown on Saturday afternoon.
Reagan Turner and Bree Glover continue to headline play for LWC. Turner, who is just 41 points away from becoming the program's all-time leading scorer, averages 22.1 PPG on an efficient 54.7 percent shooting. Glover leads the MSC in RPG (10.6) and BPG (2.7). The Blue Raiders are holding opponents to just a 35.5 percent shooting mark this season, which is the best in the MSC.
Over on the men's side, Cumberland (7-11, 6-10 MSC) recently dropped an overtime conference game with Campbellsville (Ky.) on Saturday.
The Phoenix are heavily influenced by the play of Tavon King, who leads the team in PPG (16.5), APG (2.7) and SPG (1.7). Along with the play of King, CU has proven it can take care of the ball, as the team leads the MSC in turnover margin at 2.72.
Lindsey Wilson (5-13, 3-12 MSC) fell in a tough conference game against No. 17 Georgetown at home on Saturday evening.
Three LWC players average double-figures this season, with Elijah Jordan leading the way at 16.4 PPG. Colen Gaynor sits at 10.3 PPG while averaging a team-high 7.1 RPG. Payton Cundiff has garnered a 10.2 PPG average with the most 3-point makes on the team (41).
