Inside play leads men to win against Boyce
Brandon Fentress scored 23 points, setting another career best in as many games, as Asbury would use points in the paint to dominate Boyce College, 97-76 on Thursday night in Louisville. Fentress is averaging 21 points and eight rebounds in his last two starts after scoring a previous career high of 19 against Alice Lloyd on Tuesday. Joining Fentress scoring on the inside was Brett Johnson with 16 points, Zach Mefford with 10, and Dusty Reidesel also with 10. Fentress paced the Eagles with nine rebounds.
The scoring inside offset a poor night from three-point range as the Eagles shot 33.3% (6-18) from behind the arc. Free throw shooting continued to be a concern from a percentage standpoint as Asbury shot 3-of-9 from the line.
The win gives the Eagles a 14-7 overall record while holding at 2-1 in conference play. The team will host conference rival Berea on Saturday, January 27th at 7:00 p.m.
