Trinity Baptist College 71
Welch College 61
November 23, 2013. A cold shooting first half cost the Flames as they dropped a hard-fought 71-61 contest to visiting Trinity Baptist College before a spirited Welch crowd at Picirilli Activity Center.
David Reeves hit a three-pointer with 9:12 left in the first half to give the Flames a four point lead, but the rest of the half belonged to the Eagles as they outscored WC, 25-10 to take 37-26 lead into the locker room.
The Flames outplayed their guests in the second half, but the eleven point deficit was too much to overcome.
“We can’t just trade baskets with a team when we are down,” said Flames’ coach Nathan Willhite. “But, we should have done a better job defensively in the first half.”
For the third straight game, Lim Chol leads the Flames in scoring with 20 points, shooting 63% from the floor. Tim Hutchinson and Jeffery Carter were also in double figures with 14 and 13 points, respectively.
The Flames host St. Louis Christian College on Monday.
