Guilford Men Fall at Randolph-Macon

ASHLAND, Va. – Adam Desgain scored a game-high 20 points in Randolph-Macon College's 11th straight basketball win Sunday, a 74-45 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) victory over visiting Guilford College.

The host Yellow Jackets (17-3, 10-2 ODAC), who last lost Dec. 10 at Guilford, scored the game's first 18 points before the Quakers' Josh Pittman made two free throws midway through the first half. Gabriel Lowder's three-pointer at the 9:53 mark represented the Quakers' first field goal and made the score, 18-3. Randolph-Macon led, 42-21, at halftime.

Randolph-Macon scored the first 10 points of the second half and built its lead to as many as 41. The Yellow Jackets made 30-of-59 field goals, including nine-of-18 three-pointers, and had the best shooting percentage (.508) by a Quakers' opponent this year. Desgain hit four-of-five three-pointers and also grabbed five rebounds. Calvin Croskey also went four-for-five from long range and finished with 14 points. Lamar Giggetts tallied 11 points and Akeem Holmes added eight off the bench for the Yellow Jackets.

Pittman's 12 points and five rebounds led Guilford (14-6, 8-3 ODAC) , which had a five-game losing streak end. The Quakers managed just 17-for-57 shooting from the field (29.8%), including three-of-17 (17.6%) from three-point land. Guilford was outrebounded for just the third time this season, 42-36, and scored its fewest points in a game since Nov. 22, 2002.

The Quakers host league-foe Roanoke College Wednesday (2/1) at 7:00 p.m.
