ST. LOUIS – Looking to start the second half of the American Midwest Conference schedule on a high note, Central Baptist College men’s basketball played the Hornets of Harris-Stowe State tonight at the Emerson Performance Center in the first rematch of last year’s AMC Tournament Championship game. CBC (13-4, 8-1 AMC) trailed for only 2:35 in the entire game and shot over 50 percent from the field to avenge last year’s defeat by a score of 103-88 over HSSU (1-7, 0-5 AMC).
Six Mustangs finished in double figures scoring, led by Kelvin Robinson (SR/Little Rock, Ark.). CBC shot over 50 percent from the floor in both halves and eclipsed the century mark in scoring for the third time this season.
Robinson poured in a season-best 23 points on a season-high nine made field goals
Tedrick Wolfe (SR/DeWitt, Ark.) had 20 points. Zach Hudson (SR/Jackson, Miss.) had 15 points and led the team with seven rebounds
The 103 points were the second highest total this season – the Mustangs scored 115 against Bacon on Nov. 17.
Riley Barnes led HSSU with 19 points. Marquis Pepper had a team-best six rebounds and also led with six assists
