ALBION, Mich. – Head Coach Jody May exhorts his Albion College squad to play up to the standard, regardless of the score.
May was pleased with his team's performance after Albion blew out Kenyon College, 112-61, at Kresge Gymnasium Saturday afternoon.
"I'm not as concerned about the results as I am with how we are doing," May said. "Have we improved from the day before?
"A lot of coaches will tell their team its 0-0," May said of his halftime talk with the Britons leading 59-27. "Whether we are up one or 20, we play to our standards and we do things a certain way. To our credit, we did that for a lot of minutes today."
MJ Barnes and Caden Ebeling scored 15 points apiece and ArShawn Parker added 10 points off the bench as Albion sprinted out to the big halftime lead. The Britons shot 69 percent (22-of-32) from the field in the first half, including 67 percent (8-of-12) from three-point range.
In all, five Britons scored in double figures with Ebeling leading the way with 17. Juwan Perry fell a rebound shy of a double-double with 16 points. Barnes finished with 15 points, and Nathaniel Collins and Parker finished with 10 points apiece.
- Albion's 112 points were the most since a 116-63 victory over Earlham (Ind.) in 2013
- Albion finished the game shooting 65 percent (40-of-62) from the field and 61 percent (14-of-23) from three-point range
- Ebeling matched his career scoring high and Perry's nine rebounds were a career high
Albion, 3-1 overall, takes the court against Heidelberg (Ohio) University in a 7 o'clock home game on Tuesday. The Britons welcome donations of non-perishable food items to be given to Albion Interfaith Ministries.
