LA PLUME, PA. — The Wilson College men’s basketball team extended their win streak to four games Saturday, defeating the Keystone College Giants in a Colonial States Athletic Conference matchup Saturday. The Phoenix (6-9, 3-2 CSAC) defeated the Giants (5-10, 2-4 CSAC) by a score of 71-65. 

How It Happened

Senior Rashaan Bean (San Antonio, Tx, Forest Park) started the game with a three that put Wilson ahead, 3-0. The Phoenix continued to shoot the ball well from deep. Sophomore Adrian Thomas (Germantown, Md., Northwest HS), junior Christian Evans(Baltimore, Md., Our Lady Of Mount Carmel), and sophomore Anthony Desruisseau (Burtonsville, Md., Springbrook HS) all knocked down threes.

The teams battled back-and-forth throughout the first, with eight lead changes and four tied scores. Wilson went into halftime leading 32-29.

In the second, junior Zachary Powell (Manassas, VA, Osbourn) opened up play with a deep three. Later Powell hit back-to-back threes on back-to-back possessions. That extended the Wilson lead to six with 15 1/2 minutes remaining.
