Basketball: LWC comeback effort falls short
By Kyle Jackson
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team fell to Freed-Hardeman (TN) Thursday evening 59-65 in a tight affair at Biggers Sports Center. The loss is the sixth straight for the Blue Raiders.
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team will now turn their attention to Saturday when they return to Biggers Sports Center to face Bethel (TN). Tipoff is set for 4pmCT.
Elijah Jordan led the Blue Raiders with 13 points on the evening while Jordan and Mark Edmond collected five rebounds in the game. As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 34.4 percent from the field going 21 of 61, five of 22 from beyond the arc for 22.7 percent, and 12 of 16 from the free throw line for 75 percent while scoring 16 points off the bench.
The Blue Raiders started off the game in a tight deadlock with the Lions before the hosts began to find some rhythm opening a nine-point lead with 12:55 remaining in the first half. That lead shrunk as the teams neared the halftime break as the Lions knocked down nine straight to take a 37-31 halftime lead.
The Lions continued to push their offensive tempo for the remainder of the second half, but the Blue Raiders didn't go away easily as they found a way back into the game, cutting the lead to within three with a 1:50 remaining in the second half. Despite their best efforts, the Blue Raiders fell once again after free throws and game management won it in the end for Freed-Hardeman.
