LYNDONVILLE, Vt. – The Thomas College men's basketball team defeated Northern Vermont University-Lyndon 100-83 in a North Atlantic Conference (NAC) game on Saturday afternoon.
Demetris Webster (Port St. Lucie, Fla.) matched his career-high, scoring 24 points to lead the Terriers. Lovegeurson Fleurine (Fort Pierce, Fla.) and Zach Mackinnon (Kennebunk, Maine) each came in with 16 points. Justin Butler (Orlando, Fla.), Jordan Goodson (Orlando, Fla.) and Jacob Godfrey (Machias, Maine) each added 10 points to round out the balanced Thomas lineup.
The Terriers 100 points is their largest offensive output of the season and the first time they've reached triple-digit scoring since last year's season opener on November 9, 2018 when they also scored 100 points against UMaine-Augusta.
After trading the lead several times in the opening minutes, Lyndon gradually forged ahead, taking their biggest lead at 34-24 with 7:33 to go in the opening half. With the Hornets leading, 38-30, the Terriers capitalized on three straight Lyndon turnovers to fuel an 11-0 run and regain the advantage to take a 48-44 edge into the half.
Thomas ran off 19 unanswered points in the opening part of the second half to take control of the contest. The Terriers extended their lead to as much as 24 points before settling for the 100-83 win.
Thomas will host the St. Joe's on Wednesday, January 15 at 7:00 PM.
