Archers Stem Two-Game Skid, Beat Lewis and Clark

Shootout.

While they may have lacked the crisp nature of their last home win, Randy Reed and his Archers were relieved to take home a 76-72 win over Lewis and Clark Community College in the first game of the 2014 STLCC Shootout on Sunday.

 

The Archers evened their record at 6-6, and stemmed a brief two-game losing streak. Due to a scheduling anomaly, the Archers had not played at home in more than two weeks, since earning an 85-80 win over Mid-South College on Nov. 21.

 

The Archers will be off for the next five days, before traveling to Mid-South on Dec. 13. That break comes well-deserved for a team that played on three consecutive days over the weekend, concluding with Sunday’s victory. The Archers showed little fatigue early, however, surging to a 32-29 halftime lead.

 

STLCC saw that advantage dwindle in the second half, with Lewis and Clark knotting the game at 68-68 in the final minute.

 

Sophomore guard Sean Robinson’s final basket of the day helped secure the winning margin. Robinson, who leads the Archers with 12.7 points per game, built upon the strong start to his second season in an Archers uniform by scoring a game-high 25 points, including 17 in the second half.

 

Shootout Recap

Mineral Area 88, Fort Benning 64 -- For the second time in three days, Mineral Area left the Forest Park gymnasium with a win. Just two days after defeating the Archers on their home floor, the Cardinals surged to a 50-30 halftime lead, and cruised to the 24-point rout. Fort Benning’s Brandon Wheeless provided one of the top individual performances of the Shootout in a losing effort, finishing with 35 points.

 

Southwestern Illinois College 80, Three Rivers 78 -- In what has become the norm for these two teams at the STLCC Shootout, the game remained in doubt until the final possession. SWIC secured the winning basket with just 2.3 seconds remaining in regulation, giving the Blue Storm and head coach Jay Harrington a narrow victory over longtime rival Gene Bess of Three Rivers.

 

Moberly 73, Lake Land 69 -- In another game that remained in question throughout the second half, Moberly withstood a pair of late Lake Land rallies to win the final game of the Shootout. After narrowing the score to 72-69, Lake Land was unable to complete the comeback when its final 3-point attempt was blocked. Moberly tallied a free throw on the ensuing possession to secure the win.
