COLUMBIA KY - (29 Oct 2017) - The No. 21-ranked Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team opened the season with a 76-47 victory over Central Penn (PA) at Biggers Sports Center on Sunday.
The Blue Raiders (1-0) tallied 39 points from beyond the arc as LWC connected on 13-of-25 attempts from deep.
Kel Stotts, in his collegiate debut, led a trio of Blue Raiders in double figures with 20 points after making a team high 6-of-7 three point shots. Fellow freshman Jordan Hamlette had 15 points as senior Bryan Wallace had 14, including a perfect 8-for-8 mark from the charity stripe. Charles Sutton added seven points on the day, moving him up to sixth on the program's all-time scoring list with 1,137 points.
The Blue Raiders got off to a slow start in the first half and found themselves down 8-3 after five minutes. With ten minutes left in the half, Stotts hit a three pointer to put LWC ahead 16-15, a lead the Blue Raiders would not relinquish the rest of the game. In the final ten minutes, Lindsey Wilson outscored Central Penn (0-3) 23-10.
Stotts scored 14 of his game-high 20 points in the first 20 minutes of action. The Blue Raiders shot 52.2 percent from the floor and 55.6 percent from beyond the arc in the opening half. The Knights were limited with 36.0 percent from the floor and a 16.7 percentage from three-point range.
At halftime, Lindsey Wilson held a 39-25 lead as the Blue Raiders shot 12-of-23 from the floor and 5-of-9 from beyond the arc.
The Blue Raiders carried the momentum built at the end of the first half into the second half as they went on a 24-11 run than lasted just over eight minutes. During the run Lindsey Wilson sank six three pointers, including two from Hamlette.
The lead swelled to as big as 31 points twice, both via Allen Costly free throws at the 5:41 and 3:55 mark as LWC cruised to a 29-point victory.
Lindsey Wilson finished the game shooting 46.0 percent from the field and 52.0 percent from deep. The Blue Raider defense came up with 12 steals and five blocks.
