Basketball: Harlan drops 24 in LWC victory over Rio Grande
By Christopher Webster
Rio Grande, OH - Sophomore Jackson Harlan hit a career-high six three-pointers, five in the first half, as the Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team beats Rio Grande (OH) 76-71 on Tuesday evening.
Harlan led the Blue Raiders in scoring with 24 points, a career-high while shooting 66 percent from beyond the arc.
Mark Edmond and Elijah Jordan also chipped in with the scoring load, recording 19 and 11 points, respectively. As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 11 for 21 from the three-point line.
The RedStorm started the game on a 5-0 run, as Miki Tadic hit a hook shot and a three-pointer off an offensive rebound to take the early lead. The Blue Raiders responded with a run of their own, as Jordan and Edmond knocked down back-to-back three-pointers to go ahead 6-5 a little over a minute into the contest.
Lindsey Wilson grew their lead to as large as eight as Jackson and Payton Cundiff checked into the game and hit three-pointers en route to a 9-4 Lindsey Wilson run. However, Rio Grande minimized the damage, scoring the next 12 out of 14 points to trim the lead 19-17 with 11:51 remaining in the first half.
The Blue Raiders continued to apply pressure in the last few minutes of the first half as they went on another run, this time 14-4, to take a 33-21 with 5:13 left. Harlan knocked down three of his five first-half three-pointers to give Lindsey Wilson the double-digit lead.
The RedStorm were again able to manage the damage done by the Blue Raiders as they were able to shrink the lead back down to single digits to trail 43-34 going into halftime.
Rio Grande opened the second half with a 9-4 run to cut the lead 47-43 with 16:47 remaining in the game. The RedStorm got within one point of the Blue Raiders before Lindsey Wilson increased their lead back to double-digits off a pair of mid-range jump shots by Calvin Fugett and one from Lucas Ribeiro for a 58-48 lead.
Even with the double-digit deficit, Rio Grande wasn't backing down as they hit back-to-back three-pointers late in the second half to shrink the lead 67-62 with 4:21 remaining in the contest. Just when it seemed like the Blue Raider's lead would continue to dwindle, Edmond picked off a pass and scored a fast-break layup to start a 6-0 Lindsey Wilson run to cushion the lead.
Rio Grande searched for chances late to tie the game but fell short as the Blue Raiders picked up their second win on the season 76-71.
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team returns to the court this weekend as they host Southeastern Baptist (MS) and Louisiana College in the Sleep Inn Classic.
