Southmoore coach to be honored Friday



After Jarius Wilson made two free throws to cut the lead to two, Gentry came right back and answered with two freebies of his own to make it 92-88 with 25 seconds left. 

Semar Farris then brought the Evangels within one point at 92-91 by nailing a tough three from the corner with 11 seconds left. 

Following two free throws by Jonathan Walter that put the Lions up three, the Evangels misfired on a three and one free throw by Walter put it away.  

Stephen Armstrong hit a long three at the buzzer to create the final one-point margin. 

The Evangels (14-8,10-6 SAC) appeared to have things in control when Farris scored to cap a 7-0 spurt that put them up 62-50 at the 15:08 mark of the second half. 

But that’s when Tyler Guidry and Dominique Rambo went to work, combining for all 15-0 points of a 15-3 run, including consecutive threes by Guidry that tied the score at 65-65 with 12:21 left. 

The Evangels led by nine at the 7:39 point of the first half and then 36-29 when Rambo scored six to lead a 13-2 push that SAGU in front 42-38. 

MACU then outscored the Lions 11-2 over the final two minutes of the period to take a 49-44 lead at the break on a three by Farris and a buzzer-beating three by Armstrong. 

Farris produced another solid, all-around game of 32 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals.  The Evangels also got a career-high 22 points from Josh Minner and 14 each from Armstrong and Wilson.  Josh Smith recorded seven boards for the Evangels. 

Rambo led five Lions (22-3, 14-2 SAC) in double-figures with 24 points.  Gentry had 19 and Guidry scored 18, hitting all four of his three-point attempts.  Walter added 16 points an Adoyi scored 12 along with a team-high nine rebounds. 

The Evangels controlled the boards to a tune of 41-29 overall and 18-10 on the offensive glass. 

Both offenses clicked on all cylinders, with the Evangels shooting 52.2 percent (36-of-69) and the Lions a tick better at 53 percent (35-of-66).  

The Lions overall hit 15-of-30 from three-point distance and the Evangels were 8-of-19, but only 2-of-9 from the perimeter in the second half. 

The Evangels will look to snap their three-game losing skid next Thursday night (Feb. 20) at home against John Brown University at 8 p.m. inside the Gaulke Activity Center.
