Basketball: LWC Men to close home stretch against Georgetown
By Kyle Jackson
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team will look to continue their winning ways tomorrow afternoon when they host No. 13 Georgetown (Ky.) in their sixth straight home game. Tipoff is scheduled for 4pmCT.
The Blue Raiders (11-13, 4-12 MSC) enter the match after winning back-to-back games for the first time since the Thanksgiving holiday when they defeated rival Campbellsville University 64-53 Thursday afternoon in the Battle of Highway 55. Senior guard Calvin Fugett led the team with 16 points in the victory going seven of 12 from the field and remained perfect at the free throw line.
Junior guard Elijah Jordan continues to lead the team in points per game averaging 14.3, the 10th best in the conference while also shooting 53.2 percent from beyond the arc, the highest percentage from the three-point line in the conference and fourth-best in the NAIA.
Sophomore guard Mark Edmond continues to lead the team in rebounds per game averaging 7.8 so far this season ranking third in the conference. As a team, the Blue Raiders are averaging 72.7 points per game and are shooting 44.3 percent from the floor and 35.3 from the three-point line, the fifth-best in the conference.
As for the Tigers (20-3, 13-3 MSC), they currently sit second in the conference standings and enter the match on a four-game win streak after defeating Cumberland (Tenn.) on Thursday. Sophomore forward Kyran Jones had a game-high 26 points in the victory.
Freshman guard Derrin Boyd leads the Tigers this season in points as he is averaging 16.8 points per game, the sixth-highest PPG in the conference while Jones leads the team in rebounds per game with 11, the ninth highest in the NAIA and best in the conference.
As a team, the Tigers are averaging 85.8 points per game, the ninth highest in the country and best in the conference, and are shooting 49 percent from the floor, the third-highest in the conference and 36.4 percent from beyond the arc, the fourth-best in the MSC.
Tomorrow's meeting will be the second time these two programs have met this season. The Blue Raiders lost the previous meeting on December 16, 2021, 76-57 away from home and haven't defeated the Tigers in Biggers Sports Center since 2017.
Live video and live stats will be available for the match.
