Bethany College currently leads the Kansas City Athletic Conference (KCAC) with a 3-1 record, something head coach Brett Ballard was well aware of heading into Monday night’s match-up.
“Defeating a quality team on the road is always nice,” Ballard added. “I thought Jaris (Wommack) was terrific, but I’m really proud of the way Corey Anderson played again. He scored seven points coming off a career-high and really filled in the stat sheet nicely.”
Avila University (4-8, 1-3 HAAC) enters play riding a three-game losing streak, with its most recent loss coming to Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Dec. 29th. Quinton Branch leads the Eagles‘ offensively averaging 18.1 points per game.
