FULTON, MO -- The William Woods University men's basketball team withstood a second-half barrage of three point field goal attempts from Central Bible College on Tuesday night, running out 75-66 winners over the Spartans. Jonathon Nutt led William Woods with 18 points in the game.

The Owls gave up the opening basket to CBC, a three-pointer by Charles Staten, as the teams battled through the first five minutes of the contest.

William Woods put its foot on the gas with 14:02 left in the first, breaking the game open with a 10-0 run. Dontre' Jenkins sparked the run with a jumper, two of 10 first-half points for WWU off of Spartan turnovers. Central Bible tried to stanch the bleeding, but the Owls continued to roll, taking a 50-28 lead into the intermission.

The Owls kept the lead around 20 points for much of the second half, but Central Bible was able to narrow the gap with about five minutes left. The Spartans hit four straight treys answered only by a Nutt triple to close to within a 70-59 margin with 4:48 to go.

William Woods called a timeout on its next possession, with Nutt converting a three-point play to push WWU's margin back to 14, but a jumper from Joey Kreuter and a trey from Mason Horsley pulled CBC within nine with 2:44 to play.

The Spartans had a chance to narrow the gap to six after an Owl turnover with 2:01 to play, but Horsley missed badly and Demarius Sumrell was able to grab the rebound. WWU dodged another bullet with 75 seconds to play, as CBC wasn't able to convert on a second Owl turnover.

CBC was left with no choice but to foul, and despite WWU hitting on just two of its seven free throws in the final 37 seconds of the game, the Spartans were unable to strike back.

The Owls finished the game hitting at a .549 pace, cooling off somewhat from their .645 (20-31) pace from the first half. CBC finished the game at a .446 clip, buoyed by a .484 pace in the second half. William Woods held a slight (32-30) edge on the glass.

William Woods steps out of the regular season slate for a Tuesday matchup at NCAA Division II Lindenwood University. The exhibition game is set for a 7 p.m. tipoff on November 27.
