Second-Half Lead Slips Away From St. Aug In 68-65 Defeat To Kentucky State

Posted November 24, 2012

— Saint Augustine’s University almost left Kentucky State University with a big road win over its non-conference opponent. Instead, Kentucky State rallied in the second half for a 68-65 men’s basketball victory over the Falcons at the Exum Center on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012.

The loss stopped a three-game win streak for the Falcons (3-2 overall), who played for the first time since an impressive showing at the Catawba Classic last weekend. The Falcons showed no rust on Saturday as they led most of the game. The margin was 49-38 on a jumper by Percy Woods (Sr./Washington, D.C.) with 13:55 left in the second half, but the Thorobreds outscored the Falcons 30-16 the rest of the way.

“We started well both halves,” St. Aug Head Coach Lonnie Blow, Jr. said. “We led by 11 points at one point in the second half but couldn’t maintain it.”

Woods led the Falcons with a season-high 20 points on 8 for 16 shooting including 4 of 7 three pointers. Joel Kindred (Jr./Raleigh, N.C.) added 17 points and Chris Johnson (R-Jr./Hampton, Va.) chipped in 11 points. The trio combined to make 17 of 33 shots for 52 percent but the Falcons as a team shot 37 percent. The Falcons made 31 percent of their shots in the second half which aided the Thorobreds comeback.

Patrick Dawson, who led all scorers with 24 points, drilled a three-pointer which gave the Thorobreds a 63-61 lead at the 3:15 mark of the second half. It was their first lead since early in the second half. The Falcons regained the lead at 64-63 on Woods’ fourth three-pointer of the game. They led for the last time at 65-64 on Kindred’s foul shot with 2:13 left.

The Falcons would not score again. The Thorobreds (1-2 overall) scored the final four points to survive at home.

The Falcons jumped on the Thorobreds early, opening a 17-9 lead in the first half. The Thorobreds recovered to take a three-point lead, but the half ended with the Falcons ahead 37-36 on a three-pointer by Nick Chamblee (Sr./Hampton, Va.).

The Falcons are off until Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012, when they host Barber-Scotia College at Emery Gymnasium. Game time is 4 p.m.
