MONTGOMERY, Ala. Faulkner raced to an early double-digit advantage and never looked back, holding off a Talladega comeback effort in the second half en route to a 64-48 victory here Tuesday night in a non-conference matchup at Tine Davis Gymnasium.
The 21st-ranked Eagles rode an 18-2 stretch in the opening eight minutes to build a 20-9 lead, and the Tornadoes never got closer than nine points the rest of the way. Talladega did trim a 16-point deficit to nine with six minutes left, but Faulkner answered with seven in a row to end the Tornadoes' upset hopes.
"I know I sound like a broken record, but it's still true - we just haven't played well and with energy in a long time," Faulkner head coach Jim Sanderson said. "I don't know what it is, but it looks like we've got one foot already into the holiday break. Again, we have so many things we need to improve on."
Junior transfer Terrance Glass had 13 points, his most in a Faulkner uniform, to pace the Eagles, while Cyrille Sandjon added 12. Roman Vaughn was the only double-digit scorer for Talladega, finishing with 10 points. Phillip Wood (6'2''-G), who entered the game averaging 17 points a game for the Tornadoes, was held to six by the Eagles' defense.
Faulkner shot a scorching 55 percent from the field, while Talladega managed to make only 30 percent of its shots. The Eagles also outrebounded the Tornadoes 38-28, despite giving up 13 offensive boards.

Anthony Sullen (6'1''-G) and Doug McDaniel (6'3''-G) combined for 10 points during a run of 17 straight points early in the game to help the Lewis-Clark State College men's basketball team open its season with an impressive 106-49 victory over Northwest Indian College at the LCSC Activity Center on Saturday afternoon. The Warriors trailed 14-13 less than five minutes into the game as Northwest Indian College hit four 3-pointers early. However, as the Warriors settled in defensively, they were able to force some turnovers and finished the final 15 minutes of the first half on a 36-9 run to take a comfortable 49-23 lead at halftime. "I thought we got out of this game what we needed to," LCSC coach Brandon Rinta said. "They came out and hit some shots early, some contested shots, and put some pressure on us, which was good I think. And we put together a couple of spurts in the first half to put a little distance between us and them. For the most part, I thought our guys were pretty solid." The Warriors looked good on both ends of the court for a season opener as they dominated the smaller opponent inside and used constant defensive pressure that kept Northwest Indian College out-of-sync offensively after the first five minutes. Sullen, a 6-foot-2 junior college transfer, hit three buckets, including a 3-pointer, during the 17-0 run to get LCSC rolling. He finished with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting and was one of six Warriors in double figures. He also added four steals and four assists. McDaniel led the way with 20 points and was one of four Warriors with at least eight rebounds in the game. He was 7-of-14 from the field and added two blocks with his eight boards. Freshman Christian Davis added 17 points, while Ty Higbie had 15 points, four assists and a game-high nine rebounds. Derrick White and Zavon Jackson added 11 points and five assists each. Jackson also had eight boards. In all, those six players were a combined 35-of-62 for 56.5 percent. As a team, LCSC finished 40-of-74 from the field for 54.1 percent. "It was good for some of these new guys to get some good solid minutes, especially for the two freshmen (Davis and Connor Desaulniers) to dive in like that," said Rinta, who had four players make their Warrior debuts in the game. Desaulniers had eight boards to go with his seven points. "I was really impressed with how Ty and Doug rebounded the basketball," Rinta continued. "We have been talking a little bit. We don't have the size that we usually have so we need guys to step up and rebound like Ty and Doug did today. Zavon and Connor were big on the glass as well." The Warriors had a 37-29 rebounding advantage and limited Northwest Indian College to just six offensive rebounds. LCSC grabbed 18 offensive rebounds, which helped it to a 57-18 advantage for points in the paint. "There were some things we could have done better," Rinta said. "We have a few too many turnovers (16). I thought that the ball could have been moved a little bit better at times, but we haven't had that many practices." Prior to this season, the NAIA shortened when a team could start practice prior to its season opener. "Normally going into these games I'm feeling pretty comfortable about what we have in and what we need to do and I wasn't quite as comfortable (going into Saturday)," Rinta said. "Although it made it a little bit easier that we had so many returners." After Northwest Indian's hot start, the Warriors held the Bellingham, Wash., school to just 32 percent shooting (19-of-58). "We have some guards that can make people uncomfortable, make the other team's guards uncomfortable," Rinta said. "Whether it's pressuring the basketball or being in the passing lanes, we have to make sure to take advantage of this." The Warriors were without two returners on Saturday. Junior guard Trea Thomas was serving a one-game suspension, while David Shedrick will miss today's game as well. Rinta said both players were being disciplined for violating team rules. LCSC and Northwest Indian College will play again on Sunday with tipoff at 2 p.m. at the LCSC Activity Center. Courtesy of: frontierconference.com
