Basketball: LWC Men fall to Lee in exhibition

By Christopher Webster

Cleveland, TN - The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team has a poor shooting night from the three-point line falling 85-59 to Lee (Tenn.) on Tuesday night.

Elijah Jordan led the Blue Raiders in scoring with 14 points while shooting four for five from the free-throw line. Along with his scoring, Jordan collected four rebounds. Mark Edmond added 10 points and six rebounds. As a team, Lindsey Wilson shot just one for eight from the three-point line.

The Blue Raiders jumped out to a 5-4 lead to start the game as a three-pointer by Jamyus Jones and a midrange jump shot from Giir Ring put Lindsey Wilson out in front. However, the Flames responded with a 7-0 run taking an 11-5 advantage with 15:40 remaining in the half.

The Flames applied pressure to the Blue Raiders extending the lead to double digits outscoring Lindsey Wilson 8-4 over the next three minutes to take a 19-9 advantage. The Blue Raiders ended the first half shooting 12 for 31 from the field to trail 48-26 going into halftime.

In the second half, Lindsey Wilson attempted to claw back into the game, but Lee kept the game out of reach shooting 15 for 27 overall in the second half en route to an 85-59 win over Lindsey Wilson.

The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team returns to action on Thursday, competing in their second consecutive exhibition taking on Southern (La.). Tipoff is slated for 7pmCT.
