CONWAY – Trailing 7-4 early in tonight’s contest vs. Ecclesia, Central Baptist College men’s basketball responded by putting the game away with a 17-0 run over 4:47 in the first half. CBC (15-5) cruised from there, leading 68-14 at the half and cruising to a 102-54 win over the Royals (1-15).
“I thought we played a great first half tonight,” head coach Chris Wright said. “I was very impressed with our focus and unselfishness tonight. Thursday will be a tough road game. Williams Baptist really wants to beat us and will be ready to go.”
Five Mustangs scored in double figures, led by Ashford Golden. CBC also dominated on the glass, but no one had more than Victor Dukes.
