Red-hot Treshaun Brown continued his torrid scoring pace Friday, as the W&L boys’ basketball team battled Rappahannock, but the effort fell short as the Raiders narrowly handed the Eagles their second Northern Neck District loss of the season, 57 to 56.
“Treshaun Brown gave all he had, scoring 32 points, but had a few costly turnovers late, only because he wanted the game so much, and he pressed himself,” said Washington & Lee Coach George Hunter.
Brown hit three three-pointers to keep the Eagles in the tight game which saw W&L up by one 15 to 14 at the end of the first quarter, tied with the Raiders at the half at 23 all and tied at the end of the third quarter at 39 in the game played at Rappahannock.
“Milan Bullock seemed to be the only other player that came to play adding 10 points and 10 rebounds,” said Hunter. “The snow causing us not to practice has really hurt us the last couple of games, but I am sure we will bounce back. My boys just have to get that fire back.”
For the Raiders, Marcus Byrd had 21 points and Kelvamte Ellia had 12 points. No other players on either team were in double figures.
W&L is now 8-5 for the season and 4-2 in the conference and has four games remaining: Colonial Beach away on the Feb. 5, Essex at home on the 7th, Lancaster at home on the 13th and Northumberland at home on the 14th.
