KIAC HOOPS: No. 2 IUSE tops Berea, 81-70

BEREA — The Mountaineers put up a fight, but they weren’t able to knock off the No. 2 ranked team in the country Wednesday at the Seabury Center.

Indiana University-Southeast had seven players reached double-figures in scoring and picked up a 81-70 win over Berea College (11-7, 4-4 KIAC). With the win, the Grenadiers move to 14-3 and 8-0 in KIAC play.

Daishon Robinson had 20 points, five assists and nine rebounds to lead the Mountaineers. Tevin Webster had 12 points and seven rebounds, while Jalen Simmons added eight points.

Despite shooting only 19 percent in the first half, Berea trailed just 36-28 at halftime. The Grenadiers led by as much as 17 points in the second half, but never really pulled away.

Anthony Myrks had seven points, Tyler Huff had six points, Richard Parker and Aaron Ponder had five points each, Trent Maddox had four points, Deon Banks had two points and Seth Beckham had one point and seven rebounds.

Berea is set to return to action Friday at Bryan College.

Lady Mountaineers fall

Johnesha Warren turned in another outstanding performance, but the Lady Mountaineers couldn’t overcome a slow start Wednesday at the Seabury Center.

Warren had 24 points, six rebounds and six assists as Berea College (8-8, 4-4 KIAC) fell at home to conference rival Indiana University-Southeast (9-9, 5-4), 77-66.

Berea shot just 28 percent in the first half — including two-of-11 from three-point range — and trailed 38-27 at halftime. The Lady Mountaineers shot 43 percent from the field in the second, but IUSE was able to build a 16-point lead.

DeAnn Ryan had 15 points for Berea, Anna Loveless had 12 points and nine rebounds, Erika Parks had nine points and Malena Steve added six points.

The Lady Mountaineers are set to return to action Tuesday at Cincinnati Christian.
