Basketball: LWC Men snap losing streak by downing Patriots
By Kyle Jackson
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team defeated Cumberlands (KY) 66-49 on Monday evening, snapping a six-game losing streak. The win is the third conference victory of the season for Lindsey Wilson.
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team will next host Campbellsville University in the second leg of the Battle of Highway 55 on Thursday, February 3, 2022. Tipoff is set for 8pmCT in Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY.
Calvin Fugett went six of 13 from the field and four of nine from the free throw line against Cumberlands to lead the Blue Raiders in the game with 16 points on the evening while Mark Edmond recorded 13 rebounds and added eight points in the win.
As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 40 percent from the field going 28 of 70, two of 14 from beyond the arc for 14.3 percent, and eight of 14 from the free throw line for 57.1 percent all while forcing Campbellsville into 12 turnovers for 13 points.
The Blue Raiders (10-13, 3-12 MSC) found themselves down to start the game as the Patriots opened with a nine-point lead after 10 minutes of play. Lindsey Wilson found their rhythm in the final 10 minutes however as a series of layups Lucas Riberio and Fugett cut the lead to within two. At the break, the Patriots held a slender lead in a low scoring half, 22-20.
The two teams battled at the start of the second half as they traded the lead while tying twice. The Blue Raiders eventually captured the lead for good with 18 minutes left in the game after a jumper from Jamyus Jones. The hosts worked hard to hold their advantage as they continued to score on nearly every possession while forcing the Patriots into a series of turnovers. Eventually, the Blue Raiders extended a 19-point gap with 41 seconds left in regulation to secure their first victory in nearly a month.
