LMU men avenge season’s only loss by routing Carson-Newman 91-61

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. — Vengeance tasted ever so sweet on Wednesday night as the third-ranked Railsplitters (26-1, 20-1 SAC) punished the Carson-Newman Eagles (14-13, 12-9 SAC) for their lone loss of the season and soared to a 91-61 victory in Jefferson City, Tenn. and Holt Fieldhouse.

Luquon Choice’s (Laurens, S.C.) hot-shooting fronted the near wire-to-wire victory as the sophomore shooting guard matched a career-high with 34 points, falling just one shy of his career-high with seven three-pointers. Choice entered Wednesday’s contest needing three triples to surpass David Hopper (1990-91) for LMU’s single-season record. With 95 three-pointers and the school’s single-season record in tow, Choice has a chance to become just the third player in South Atlantic Conference history to bury 100 treys in a season. Tusculum’s Kyle Moore holds the league record with 117 made threes in 2009-10. Continue reading: LMU men avenge season’s only loss by routing Carson-Newman 91-61
