The Bulldogs won 86-84 over the Lions of Bryan on Tuesday night.
Tennessee Wesleyan managed only a 3-point basket from Aundre Reid in the first six minutes leaving them trailing Bryan 7-3. Justin Simmons provided a spark off the bench with a pair of 3-pointers and Johnson Decembre came to life with a pair of long-range bombs. Tre Tiller capped the comeback with a dunk, putting TWU on top, 48-41, at the break.
Jordan Hall had a trey as the Bulldogs opened a 10-points gap, 55-45. Again, the Lions roared back and it took eight points from Kenny Dean to keep Tennessee Wesleyan in front, 65-63. The teams traded baskets before the Lions' 14th 3-pointer of the game gave Bryan the lead, 84-83. Tiller then drained his "3" from the left wing. The defense forced a weak, off-balance shot that fell short at the buzzer.
Wesleyan made good on 11-of-27 3-point attempts.
The Bulldogs return to action after the Thanksgiving break on Wednesday, November 30th at Bluefield College at 7:30 pm.
