HOLLAND, Mich. – Albion College had the answer every time Hope College put a couple of baskets together Saturday as the Britons pulled away for an 84-70 victory over the Flying Dutchmen in Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association men's basketball action.
"The defensive end is where we started to improve as the half went on," Albion Head Coach Jody May said.
Albion extended the lead to 49-34 when Jamezell Davis, Jr. scored from 3-point range on Albion's first possession of the second half.
Hope never got closer than seven the rest of the way.
Ebeling's three-point play with 6:43 to go put the Britons on top 75-54.
- Davis matched his season-high with 23 points. He hit 5-of-9 shots from 3-point range.
- Ebeling finished with 21 points for his fifth 20-point game of the season. He was 6-of-12 from the field and 9-of-9 from the line. He also fell a rebound shy of a double-double.
- Quinton Armstrong completed his third double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds. He stuffed the box score with a pair of blocks and a pair of steals.
Albion, winners of five in a row to move to 11-2 overall and 2-0 in the MIAA, travels to Alma College for a 7:30 p.m. game on Wednesday.
