Williams Baptist College Eagles beat Ecclesia College Royals, 106-68

Posted:

From Williams Baptist College

 

 On a day when Williams Baptist College students Karisa Hendrix and Bobby Wheeler, Jr., were presented the crowns of Homecoming queen and king, the Eagles basketball squad did not treat the visiting Royals of Ecclesia College like royalty.  A 54-point first half explosion for the Eagles turned into a 106-68 Homecoming/Parents Day victory.

 

The Williams defense harassed an Ecclesia offense that was unable to break through the full-court press.  The Eagles forced 26 turnovers from the Royals, and Ecclesia only made 35 percent of its shots from the field.

 

WBC got its offense from a collection of players.  In the first half Dustin House dropped 3-point basket after 3-point basket on his way to scoring 21 points for the game.  That is his career high. 

 

Thirteen Eagles scored at least one bucket, with five getting at least nine points.  While House helped the Eagles offense in the first half, it was Kyle Harvey who upped his game in the second half, scoring WBC's first 14 points in the second frame.  He finished the contest with 24 points and eight rebounds.

 

Donovan Coleman scored 12 points and Phillip Sykes notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists.  He was three rebounds short of a triple-double with seven.

 

One key to the success on the offense was holding the ball.  The Eagles only turned the ball over eight times in the contest.  They also shot 46 percent from the field and 44 percent from beyond the arc. 

 

The win improved Williams' record to 2-0 in the early season.  They will travel to Blue Mountain College for a contest Thursday, November 8.  Their next home contest will be on November 19, when they play Crowley's Ridge College at 7:30 p.m.
