FULTON, MO -- Despite a double-double from D.J. Hoskins, the William Woods University men's basketball team dropped its final game in the Second Annual Arris' Pizza and Pub College Basketball Classic. The Owls fell to Mid-Continent University by a 75-71 margin on Saturday night.

The Owls broke away to an early lead, opening the scoring with a three-pointer by Dontre' Jenkins and pulling out to a 17-10 lead at the 12:47 mark. Eli Fleer capped off the run with a traditional three-point play.

After a short cold spell for both teams, Mid-Continent uncoiled a 10-2 run, sparked at the 10:46 mark by a pair of free throws from Reggie Elkins. The spurt gave the Cougars a 20-19 lead, and although William Woods was able to equalize briefly, the Cougars continued to pull away, edging out to a 35-28 lead with two minutes to play. Mid-Continent was able to hold off the Owl rush and take a 37-33 lead into the locker room.

To start the second half, WWU was able to cut the deficit in half on a bucket from Roy McElroy (Aurora, Ill.), but Mid-Continent pulled back out to a seven-point lead, up 42-35 with 17:50 to play.

William Woods again closed the gap with a 7-2 spurt, keyed by a pair of McElroy buckets and a Logan Decker trey to close to 42-44 with 15:23 left.

Mid-Continent responded to push its margin back to five, but the Owls were able to pull within one point with 11:16 left in the game, trailing 52-53. The Cougars again responded, this time with more emphasis as they pulled away to a 68-58 lead with 4:10 to play. Gavin Scott scored nine of the Cougar's 15 points during the run.

The Owls were again able to reel in Mid-Continent, closing to within three points with 12.2 seconds on the clock as Hoskins knocked down a three-pointer off an assist from Seth Thomas. A quick foul sent Marcus Johnson to the line, but he missed the front end of the bonus free throw.

Hoskins came down with the rebound and fired a pass to Demarius Sumrell in transition, but Sumrell's three-pointer was just off the mark. Lee Ames came away with the rebound and was fouled quickly by Decker. He hit the first free throw to seal the game the Cougars.

Both teams were solid on the evening, with Mid-Continent winning the shooting battle .517 to .474. The Owls were better from beyond the arc (.435-.400) and at the free throw line (.778-.579), and held a 36-26 edge on the glass as well.

Hoskins led the Owls with 17 points and 10 rebounds, with Fleer chipping a career high 11 points. Gavin Scott led all scorers with 24 points, with Lee Ames adding 20 on the evening, finishing just shy of a double-double himself with nine rebounds.

William Woods falls to 3-7 on the year, with Mid-Continent climbing to 9-6 on the year. The Owls return to Anderson Arena a week from Saturday, taking on Haskell Indian Nations University. Tipoff for the game, presented by Coldwell Banker Niedergerke and Co., is set for 2 p.m.
