COLUMBIA -- Despite a double-double (20 pts/17 reb) from Daniel Armah on the night, the William Woods University men's basketball team couldn't hang on down the stretch, falling 73-63 to Culver-Stockton College on Saturday afternoon in the Cougars vs. Cancer Classic hosted by Columbia College.

The Wildcats, who are receiving votes in the current NAIA Division I Men's Basketball Coaches' Poll, jumped out to a 12-4 lead with just over two minutes gone in the game.

William Woods answered with a 11-4 run over the next four minutes, pulling in front 15-14 with 13:46 on the clock. Demarius Sumrell knocked in five points for WWU during the spurt, with Armah adding four.

The teams swapped the lead twice more, with C-SC taking a 29-28 lead into the locker room at halftime.

After a bit of a stutter to start the second half, a bucket from Armah sparked a 9-3 spurt from the Owls, who led 37-32 with 15:57 left in the game.

Culver-Stockton answered with a 16-4 run of its own, pulling out to a 48-41 lead with just under 11 minutes left in the game.

A 10-3 spurt from William Woods bookended by a jumper and a three-pointer from Blake Burgess pulled the Owls back onto level footing at 51-51 with 7:34 on the clock.

Burgess' triple was one of four straight in the contest, but unfortunately for the Owls, they weren't able to push into the lead. Marshawn Norris's effort was answered by Sumrell to knot the score at 54-54, but James Johnson put the Wildcats in front for good with 6:53 to go.

The Owls couldn't find the range from beyond the arc down the stretch as the Wildcats pulled away.

Despite owning a 47-34 rebounding edge and a 18-7 edge off the offensive glass, William Woods finished the evening shooting at just a .388 pace compared to a .414 mark for Culver-Stockton. Sumrell was the only other Owl in double figures, chipping in 10. Norris and Austin Keaton each had 18 for C-SC, with C.J. Adams adding 10.

William Woods closes out the Cougars vs. Cancer Classic on Sunday afternoon, taking on Indiana University-South Bend. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m.
