Losing Streak Ends At Longwood, AC Wins 77-73

FARMVILLE, Va. Ė Donielle Davis scored a game-high 31 points to lead Anderson College to a 77-73 victory over Longwood in a CVAC menís game Monday night at Lancer Hall. The victory snapped ACís seven-game losing streak and improves the Trojans to 6-17 overall and 4-12 in the CVAC. Longwood falls to 12-11, 9-7. Two of ACís four CVAC victories have come against the Lancers. Prior to Monday night, ACís last victory came Jan. 25 at Lees-McRae. Anderson closed the first half with a 12-5 run for a 43-31 halftime lead. But the Lancers rallied early in the second half. A 23-7 run in the first eight and a half minutes of the second half gave Longwood a 54-50 lead. But the Trojans refused to fold. A 9-0 run gave AC a 60-57 lead with 8:06 left. From that point, there were five lead changes and three ties. Trailing 71-68 with 3:18 to play, the Trojans put together one final push. A 3-point basket by Davis, who was 10 for 16 from the field and 6 for 9 from behind the arc, tied the game at 71 with 3:03 left. After Charles Stephens scored for Longwood with 1:23 remaining, AC ended its frustration by making some plays down the stretch. With AC trailing 73-72 with less than 30 seconds to play, Joel C. Zimmerman buried a 3-point goal to put the Trojans ahead, 75-73. Davis added two free throws with eight seconds remaining for the final margin. Following Davis for AC were Joel C. Zimmerman with 18 points and Robbie Seabrook with 16. Davis has scored in double figures in 12 straight games and has scored 23 or more points five times in the last 12 games. Davis, a senior from Greenville, has a chance to pull off a rare feat. With four regular-season games and at least one CVAC Tournament game remaining, he needs just 90 points to reach 1,000 career points in just two seasons. Longwood was led by Stephens with 26 points, John Parker with 13 points, Nick Payne with 12, and Ryan Earle with 11. Anderson shot 48 percent from the field and 47 percent from behind the arc. The Trojans made 14 of 30 from long range, while the Lancers made just 5 of 18. Zimmerman and Seabrook made four treys apiece. Joel D. Zimmerman and Tim Thomas had five assists apiece for Anderson. Led by Parkerís 11 rebounds, the Lancers won the boards, 41-26. Game Statistics Season Statistics
