MOUNT VERNON – The Brewton-Parker College men’s basketball team quickly jumped out to an early lead against Southern Polytechnic State University (Marietta, Ga.) Saturday afternoon but couldn’t maintain that momentum, losing to the Runnin’ Hornets, 77-73.

“In our conference, it’s so important to win conference games at home,” said head coach Steve Barker.  “Unfortunately, we jumped out early but couldn’t maintain the momentum we’d built.”

The Barons (5-14, 1-6 SSAC) were led by senior guard Warren Beaulah (22 points) and sophomore post player Larry Patrick (16 points).  The Barons were out-rebounded by 10 for the game, a stat Barker says made victory that much more elusive.

“We shot better this game than we have all year,” Barker said.  “But when you don’t do a good job of rebounding, it’s hard to come away with a win.”

The Barons continue conference play Wednesday when they travel to Rome to take on Shorter College.  Their next home game will be this Saturday against Emmanuel College.  Tip-off is scheduled for 4 p.m.  All home games are played in the Gillis Gymnasium inside the Bartow and Jean Snooks Student Activities Center.
