WBC Hoops Teams Split With Lyon


Williams Baptist College hosted a twin bill in basketball Thursday night, with the Lady Eagles defeating regional rival Lyon College and the WBC men falling by three to the Scots.

Lady Eagles 66, Pipers 54

The Williams women overcame cold shooting in the first half and pulled away from the Pipers in the second period.  The Lady Eagles trailed by one at the half, 23-22, shooting only 33 percent in the first period.  WBC found its range in the second half, however, hitting 48 percent from the field and notching the 66-54 win.

The Lady Eagles also helped their cause at the free throw line, hitting 29 of 38 shots for 78 percent.

Courtney Sublett led the way with 24 points and also grabbed six rebounds.  Jessica Shepard had 11 points, while Bethany Oakley added 10.  Becky Caldwell led in rebounds, grabbing eight boards to go with her seven points.

The Lady Eagles (3-0) are at home again Saturday, hosting Blue Mountain College at 2:00 p.m.

Eagles 81, Scots 84

In spite of strong shooting, the Williams men couldn't quite get over the hump against Lyon.  The Eagles cut their deficit to one late in the game, but the Scots always found an answer at the other end of the floor.  WBC trailed at the half, 40-36.  Kyle Harvey's dunk as time expired pulled WBC to within three, but Lyon prevailed, 84-81.

Harvey continued his torrid pace, leading the Eagles with 28 points.  Wes Livingston added 25 points and pulled down a team-leading nine rebounds.

The Eagles shot 53 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range in the second period.

Williams (2-2) is home against Blue Mountain on Saturday.  The men's game will follow the women's contest at about 4:00 p.m.
