Blazers look to face Lambuth

 Alabama-Huntsville held VSU to 33.8 percent shooting as the Chargers defeated the Blazers 82-64 in Gulf South Conference men’s basketball action on Monday night.

 Both teams came out on fire from the field as the Blazers connected on five of their first nine field goal attempts, and Alabama-Huntsville connected on six of its first nine.

 VSU cooled off over the ensuing four minutes as it connected on just one of its next 12 shots, but grabbed 11 offensive rebounds during the first 10 minutes of the game and out-rebounded UAH 17-6 overall to trail just 18-16 at the media timeout.

 Later in the game, and trailing by 13, the Blazers used a 16-4 run Josh Sparks and Billy McShepard got back-to-back three-point plays to pull VSU back to within single digits and, after a Josh Yost jumper for UAH, Christian Hunter hit a three and McShepard a jumper in the lane.

 Overall, McShepard led VSU with 15 points and nine rebounds while Will Alston had 10 points and 11 rebounds. Hunter was the only other Blazer in double figures, finishing with 11. The Blazers owned a 43-36 advantage in rebounding.

 Magette led all scorers with 22 points while Jamie Smith finished with 13 and Tyler Hanback 11. Alabama-Huntsville owned a huge advantage in free throws in the game as the Chargers connected on 26 while VSU hit 11.

 The Blazers return to action Saturday, Feb. 12 when they host Lambuth at 4 p.m. in The Complex.
