Centurions Top Buccaneers In Physical Battle 93-86

BILLINGS, MT — In a game that saw 58 fouls and 73 free-throw attempts between both teams, the Yellowstone Christian College Centurions topped the Dawson Community College Buccaneers 93-86 on Tuesday night.

The Centurions and Buccaneers were evenly matched from the opening tip, with neither team pulling completely out of striking distance. The Bucs took a 47-42 lead into the locker room at halftime.

However, the Centurion offense took off in the second half, outscoring the Bucs 51-39 in the frame. In total, the teams combined for 153 shot attempts from the field and 49 attempts from three-point land. Neither team, in terms of percentage, shot the ball very well, as Yellowstone only shot 46% (30 of 66) from the field, 35% (8 of 23) from three, and 60% (25 of 42) from the charity stripe. Dawson shot a dismal 36% (31 of 87) from the field, 19% (5 of 26) from three, and 61% (19 of 31) from the free throw line.

Abraham Nyok led the Centurions' charge with his best offensive game of the year, scoring 23 points and collecting a game-high 12 rebounds for his first career double-double. Stefan Tellis and Aaron Munday-Rashid joined him in double-figures with 11 and 10 points respectively.

Daniel Shedden had himself a day for the Bucs, pouring in a game-high 29 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. Stefan Stubbs also had a double-double for Dawson with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The Centurions begin a tough stretch of road games in the next seven days, paying visits to two NAIA institutions (University of Montana Western and Dickinson State University) as well as two NCAA Division II foes (University of Mary and Black Hills State University) before returning home in early December.
