Laurinburg, NC- The St. Andrews University men's basketball team rallied to tie Bryan College late in the second half, but could not come away with a win as the Lions made their free throws down the stretch to top SAU 79-68.

SAU was led by the scoring performances from guards DJ Carnegie and Orlando Edwards as the two combined for more than half of SAU's 68 points. The freshman Carnegie had 19 points on 7 of 11 shooting including 3 made three-pointers while the senior Edwards also made 3 from behind the arc and was 5 of 9 overall for 17 points. Guard Mark McCorkle had 8 points while freshman center Chris Orr also had 8 points with 6 rebounds and an impressive 6 blocks.

Orr now has 45 blocks on the season to rank second in the conference and 22nd nationally as he averages 2 per game now which is also 2nd best in conf. and 15th nationally.

SAU let Bryan get off to a good start as they were leading by 11 early before hitting their stride to shoot 46% and only trail by 3 at intermission. However, when the Knights finally tied it at 59, Bryan was able to shut SAU down the rest of the way and go on a 20-9 run to put the game away to improve to 13-13 overall and 9-5 in the conference.

Both teams shot the three ball pretty well as they were both over 40%. However, both team's percentages dropped off in the second half. Bryan shot 50% in the first half and were led by conference leading guard Rob Riley's 23 points on 10 of 16 shooting and 15 rebounds while 3 other Lions were also in double figures for the day.

The Knights go to 1-22 on the year and 1-14 in the AAC and will travel to Bristol, VA on Wednesday for the last conference game of the year vs. VA Intermont College at 7:30 pm.
