The Mount shot a blistering 65 percent from the field in the first half on Wednesday night, while holding Anderson University to 37 percent field goal shooting in the opening half, rolling out to a 43-26 lead at the intermission en route to a 90-67 win. The Lions, 10-5 overall, improved to 7-2 in the HCAC, and remain in a first place tie for the conference lead. The Mount will return to HCAC action on Jan. 25 when they host Franklin College.

The Lions hit three-of-five, three-pointers and six of-eight free throws in the first 20 minutes of action, as they jumped out to a large lead in the game by the break. They were never challenged in the second half. Andy Countryman (Peebles, OH/Peebles) made a lay-up with 14:24 on the second half clock, to push the Mount lead out to 62-41 and teammate Joel Scudder (Greendale, IN/South Dearborn) fired in a jump shot with 7:09 to play to give the Mount a 25-point lead. David Mann (Fairfield, OH/Cincinnati Christian) hit three free throws with just over four minutes left to play to give the Lions their largest lead (28 points).

The Mount got double-digit scoring from four players in the game: Femi Thompson (Cincinnati, OH/Aiken), 22 points; Mark Allen (Cincinnati, OH/Northwest), 18 points; Scudder, 16 points and Countryman, 14 points. Allen and Countryman added six rebounds each while Thompson collected five rebounds, helping the Lions win the rebounding battle, 31-22. Thompson was seven-of-eight from the field, one-of-one from three-point range and seven-of-seven from the free throw line. The Mount connected on 23-of-23 free throws in the game.
