Offensive Barrage Powers Black Knights Past Lafayette, 94-74
It was a night remember for the Army West Point Men's Basketball team as five Cadets scored in double figures to help the Black Knights capture a 94-74 Patriot League road victory against Lafayette.
The Black Knights (8-10, 3-4 Patriot League) put together one of their best overall shooting performances in recent years and connected on 63 percent of their shots from the field against the second-best scoring defense in the league.
Matt Wilson, who was 11-of-16 from the field, finished his night against the Leopards (11-7, 3-4 Patriot League) with a game-high 23 points to go along with five rebounds and four assists. It was the second time in the latest three-game stretch that the Alexandria, Ky., native dropped over 20 points while knocking down double-digit shots in a game.
He was not the only one to eclipse the 20-point mark though as Lonnie Grayson tied his career-high scoring output of 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting. The cow guard was on fire from long range, connecting on five of his seven attempts from deep. He also added four assists and four rebounds to his stat line. Read more.
