PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- The Alderson Broaddus men's basketball team rebounded from a poor outing Thursday night with a definitive 36-point drubbing of conference foe Cedarville University, 93-57, Saturday afternoon at Rex Pyles Arena.
The Battlers, winners of 13 of their last 14 games, improved to 8-1 in Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) play and 15-5 overall. ABU swept the season series with Cedarville with Saturday's win, after sinking the Yellow Jackets (5-15, 3-5 G-MAC) 80-62 in the last meeting.
ABU shot a season-best 54 percent from long distance and sank a season-high 14 treys Saturday. Sophomores Malcolm Tatum (Columbia, Md.) and Thylas Perkins (Chicago, Ill.) combined for eight 3-pointers, and Tatum scored a team-high 24 points.
Tatum was 9-for-14 from the field, dished out seven assists, just three shy of his season high, and compiled three rebounds.
He led the blue and gold with 13 points in the first half and chipped in 11 more after the break.
Cedarville shot a paltry 24 percent from the floor and 18 percent from outside the arc in the first half.
The Yellow Jackets kept the game close until the 9:29 mark in the first half. ABU went on a 20-3 run over the next eight minutes to put the game out of reach before halftime.
Senior Adam Kline (Winfield, W.Va.) had one of his best outings of the year and recorded his team-leading 12th double-double of the season. He had 15 points, 16 rebounds and recorded three assists. Kline was 6-for-11 from the field and 3-for-3 from the charity stripe.
The Battlers were a perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line Saturday; it was the only outing in which ABU did not miss a free throw during the 2013-14 season.
Marcus Reineke was the Yellow Jackets’ top offensive player and scored 20 points. He connected on four 3-pointers and eight free throws in the loss.
ABU visits Salem International University Thursday, Feb. 13, for its next meeting with conference opposition. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
