Alice Lloyd traveled to Johnson City, Tennessee to take on Appalachian Athletic Conference member Milligan College. In a game comprised of runs, the Eagles were defeated by the Buffaloes 74-63.
After falling behind 6-2, ALC scored the next 12 points to take a 14-6 lead at the 12-minute mark. However, Milligan closed the half on a 28-14 run. This sent them into the locker room leading 34-28.
Milligan extended the lead to as many as 18 in the second half before Alice Lloyd cut the margin down to 11. Unfortunately, that would be as close as the Eagles would get the rest of the way.
ALC (6-6) had three players in double figures. Isaac Wilson led all scorers with 20 points. Terry Muse had 16 points and led the team in rebounds with 10. Cody Stumbo added 11 points.
Milligan (5-4) was led by Kurt Brooks and Torian Sitton with 13 points apiece.
Alice Lloyd shot 36% from the field, including 5-16 beyond the arc. Milligan put the ball in the basket 54% of the time while connecting on 6-12 from three-point range.
The Eagles will next travel to Virginia Intermont College to face the Cobras at 7 PM on December 5th.
