Archers Close Regular Season with Win

March 04, 2012

Academy to complete a regular-season sweep of Region
XVI opponents Saturday.

Fresh off a wakeup call in the team’s final road game of the year, the St. Louis Community College men’s basketball team had little difficulty with Wentworth Military Academy on Saturday, dispensing of the Red Dragons 87-50 to complete a clean sweep of Region XVI opponents in the regular season.

The Archers, who are ranked 14th nationally, but dropped a 90-54 game to Lincoln College, rebounded nicely against Wentworth, who they will see again this week in the opening round of the Region XVI tournament.

Ryun Davis (McCluer North) led the charge for the Archers, finishing 13 of 13 shooting from the field, en route to leading all scorers with 28 points. Davis also grabbed 10 rebounds to complete the double-double.

Despite entering the game with their 14-game winning streak snapped, head coach Randy Albrecht was pleased with his team’s mindset following the loss to Lincoln.

“I think it gets the streak off our backs, that pressure is off of us,” Albrecht said. Sometimes you just have a clunker.”

The Archers began Saturday with no remnants of that game remaining, as they streaked to a 45-25 halftime lead. They also held the Red Dragons to 25 points in the second half, even as Albrecht emptied his bench in the second half.

Darryn Anderson  

Darryn Anderson nearly completed a double-double against
Wentworth Saturday, finishing with 19 points and nine
rebounds in the Archers' victory.

That bench had one of its most productive days of the season Saturday. Sophomore guard Darryn Anderson (Hazelwood Central) poured in 19 points and snagged nine rebounds in 26 minutes.

Sophomore guard Clyde Jeffers (Ladue) added 11 points, fortifying his reputation as a reliable scoring option in a reserve role.

Those contributions create a difficult situation for the Red Dragons, who lost to the Archers 74-67 on Feb. 4, despite STLCC being without Davis.

“The only thing you can say now is, do we want to change anything,” Albrecht said, noting the quick turnaround from Saturday to Friday, when STLCC and Wentworth will battle in the first round of the Region XVI Tournament.

“When we play them again in six days, they’re the ones that need to make the adjustments,” Albrecht added. “We’re probably not going to change a lot.”

The Archers (23-7) enter the regional tournament as the top-seeded team for the second straight year.
