Basketball: LWC Men fall to Pikeville

By Kyle Jackson

The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team fell to (RV) Pikeville (KY) Monday afternoon 54-66 in the fifth straight loss for the Blue Raiders.

Elijah Jordan and Jamyus Jones led the team with 16 points on the afternoon while Giir Ring and Zerin Malesevic led the team in rebounds with seven on the afternoon, a career high for Malesevic.

As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 34.5 percent from the field going 20 of 58, eight of 24 from beyond the arc for 33.3 percent and six of eight from the free throw line for 75 percent while scoring 22 points off the bench.

The Blue Raiders started off the game with a four-point lead after layups from Connor Robinson and Johrdon Mumford. The two sides proceeded to trade ties and the lead before the visitors scored eight unanswered to take a 30-22 halftime lead.

The Bears continued to dominate for the remainder of the game, as they grew their lead to as much as 17 points with seven minutes remaining. The Blue Raiders worked hard to find a way back into the game but ultimately fell short of achieving a comeback.

The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team will now turn their attention to Thursday when they return to Biggers Sports Center to face Freed-Hardeman. Tipoff is set for 6pmCT.
