Basketball: LWC Men knocked out of MSC Tournament

By Kyle Jackson

Williamsburg, KY - The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team put up a fight against the Patriots of Cumberlands (KY) but were knocked out of the tournament in the final seconds of Tuesday's game.

Lindsey Wilson finishes the season at 11-20 in the regular season and 4-18 in Mid-South Conference play.

Nine Blue Raiders scored points, six of them scoring from the bench as Mark Edmond led the team with 13 points, going five of 10 from the field and 16 rebounds for a double-double on the night. Calvin Fugett finished with 11 points after also going five of 10 from the field.

Lindsey Wilson (11-20, 4-18 MSC) shot 42.6 percent from the field going 26 of 61 while shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc for five of 15 and nearly perfect from the free throw line at three of four for 75 percent.

The Patriots opened the contest hot from range as they nailed two threes and a following layup, taking an 8-2 lead forcing Lindsey Wilson into an early timeout. The timeout did the trick to slow down the Patriots but failed to spark the Blue Raider offense as both teams struggled to find a basket for a span of three minutes before a layup from the Patriots made it 10-2.

The Blue Raiders finally found some offensive rhythm as a 6-0 run in the span of three minutes cut the Patriots' lead to within two at 8-10 by the first media timeout. A three from the Patriots ignited the hosts back into the game as they went back on a 9-0 run to lead 25-14 with 6:59 remaining in the first half. As the two teams neared the half, a last second three from Fugett cut the deficit to within six at 27-33.

The Patriots started off the second half just as they did the first with a three from distance. Edmond responded immediately with a bucket of his own on the following play to make it 29-36. A 6-0 run from the Blue Raiders cut the Patriot lead to within three at 35-38 before the hosts answered with another three to reestablish a 41-35 lead with 14:13 remaining in the game.

The Blue Raiders continued to hang around with the Patriots cutting the lead to as much as a point with 6:46 remaining on the clock. Eventually, the Blue Raiders tied the game after a three from Johrdon Mumford with 3:43 remaining made it 55-55. Two free throws and a following three reestablished a five-point lead for the Patriots, but the Blue Raiders were ready to give up just yet as a layup from Fugett and a three from Jordon with 47 seconds left tied the game at 60.

After failing to get the lead at the free throw line, the Patriots managed to retrieve an offensive rebound and called a timeout with 16 seconds remaining on the clock. Out of the timeout, the hosts got the game winner to fall in the paint with five seconds remaining, ending the Blue Raiders' season in heartbreaking fashion.
