Tuesday, December 03, 2013

For a second straight game, the Covenant men's basketball team suffered from a cold shooting night as the Scots fell to perennial Division III power Emory 110-76 on Tuesday night inside Woodruff PE Center.

Covenant fell to 3-3 on the season as they connected on just 33.8 percent (24-of-71) from the floor. Emory improves to 6-2 for the year.

Bryant Engbers once again led the Scots offensively with 16 points and seven rebounds. Engbers was 5-of-8 from the field including a pair of 3-pointers. Colton McGriff was the only other Covenant player in double figures with 12 points.

Emory was paced by five players ind double digits led by McPherson Moore's game-high 20 points. Covenant limited Eagles' leading scorer Jake Davis (24 points per game) to 13 on the night. Emory was 39-of-84 (46.4 percent) shooting and 22-of-28 from the free throw line.

The host Eagles jumped out to an early lead and extended the margin throughout the first half. Emory led 46-28 with under a minute remaining in the period before the Scots answered with four straight thanks to a Chris Boyd jumper and Teron Ferguson's steal which led to a pair of free throws to cut the Eagles' lead to 46-32 at the break.

But in the second half, Emory scored the first six points and Covenant would not get closer the rest of the game. The Eagles would lead by as many as 38 midway through the second half.

Covenant will travel to Minnesota for two games this weekend. The Scots face Crown on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. followed by a tilt against Bethany Lutheran on Saturday at 2 p.m.
