Bethel Wildcats edge by WBC Eagles in double-overtime thriller
From Williams Baptist College
night saw the Williams Baptist College men's basketball team erase a
12-point halftime deficit against Bethel University, which would send
the game into two overtimes. The Wildcats would eventually out-score
WBC 16-10 in the second overtime to escape with a 114-108 victory in
Eagles would score enough to reach double figures in the contest. James
McClain led Williams with 27 points, E.J. Rucker followed with 24
points, Chris Price
added a double-double with 19 points and 10 assists, Kevin Charles
contributed with 16 points and Tevin Howard rounded out the attack with a
double-double of his own, posting 15 points and 14 rebounds.
Five Wildcats also reached double figures, led in scoring by Gary Pollard's 25-point performance.
WBC is now 3-1 on the season. The next scheduled match for the Eagles is a home contest against 14th-ranked John Brown University.
The contest is scheduled for a 4 p.m. start on Saturday, November 16, in WBC's Southerland-Mabee Center.
