By Kyle Jackson

Pulaski, TN - The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team lost a tight battle on the road this evening dropping their second straight game in the new year 59-61 against the Firehawks.

The Blue Raiders return home on Thursday, January 13, 2022, to kick off a two-game homestand starting off with Cumberlands (KY). Tipoff is scheduled for 8pmCT.

Elijah Jordan led the team with 18 points while Mark Edmond collected a team-high six rebounds in the game. As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 43.4 percent from the floor while outrebounding the Firehawks 29-24. The Blue Raiders were plagued by turnovers as they gave up possession 20 times in the game.

Lindsey Wilson (8-8, 1-7 MSC) went into the halftime locker room with a four-point lead at 30-26 after a back-and-forth opening half where the visitors shot 43.5 percent going 10 of 23 from the floor. The two teams continued to trade the lead for the remainder of the second half until two layups from the Firehawks in the final minute of play gave them a 56-53 lead. A three from Jordan with 4.9 seconds left on the clock made it a one-point game at 57-56 but free throws with three seconds left in regulation secured the 61-59 win for the hosts.
