Basketball: LWC Men rally to beat Louisiana Christian
By Christopher Webster
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team scored 41 second-half points to come away with a 75-72 win over Louisiana College on Sunday evening.
Elijah Jordan led the Blue Raiders (4-1, 0-0 MSC) in scoring with 20 points while shooting three for four from the three-point line and seven for 10 from the free-throw line. Along with his scoring, Jordan also added four rebounds and three assists.
Giir Ring and Mark Edmond also finished the night in double figures, recording 14 and 12 points, respectively. Kae'ron Baker led the game in scoring, finishing with a season-high 29 points for the Wildcats (2-3, 0-0 RRAC).
Lindsey Wilson jumped out to an early 9-4 lead as Jordan nailed back-to-back three-pointers and Payton Cundiff added a three-pointer of his own with 15:38 remaining in the half. Louisiana Christian responded with a 9-0 run to take a four-point advantage over the Blue Raiders.
The Blue Raiders once again took the lead when Connor Robinson found Cundiff wide open for a three to cut the Wildcats' lead to one. Edmond intercepted a pass on the next possession and scored a fastbreak layup for Lindsey Wilson to go up by one with 10:52 left in the first half.
Both teams traded the lead in the waning moments of the first half, but Baker scored 15 points in the final 10 minutes of the half as the Wildcats enjoyed a 41-34 lead at the break.
As a team, Lindsey Wilson shot 52 percent overall from the field and hit seven three-pointers in the first 20 minutes of the game.
The Blue Raiders opened the second half with a 5-2 run to tie the game as Calvin Fugett worked his way into the Wildcats' defense and connected with Jackson Harlan for an open three-pointer. Fugett again found Robinson, this time on a backdoor cut to shrink the lead.
On the following defensive possession, Jordan stole the ball and hit Harlan in stride for a fastbreak layup, while Jordan hit a midrange jumper on the next offensive possession and the game was tied with 15:33 remaining.
The lead continued to switch hands over the next three minutes, but Lindsey Wilson took a five-point lead as Ring hit a shot from beyond the arc and Lucas Ribeiro threw down an electric dunk to take a 52-47 lead with 12:09 left in the game.
The Blue Raiders grew their lead to as large as 10 in the final moments of the second half, but the Wildcats continued to stick around as they went on a 19-12 run to cut the lead to three with 1:14 remaining. The Blue Raiders kept their composure as Jordan hit four free throws to keep Louisiana Christian at bay as Lindsey Wilson picked up its fourth straight win 75-72.
The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team returns to action on Tuesday, hosting Simmons College of Kentucky. Tipoff is slated for 6pmCT at Biggers Sports Center.
