The St. Louis Community College men's basketball team found themselves down by double digits on two occasions Thursday night vs. Lewis & Clark, and both times found a way to persevere and give themselves a chance to win late.  The Archers, losers of five straight in a brutal stretch which saw them play five teams that were either D1 schools or ranked D2 schools, found themselves tied with a minute to go and scored the final six points of the game to pull away for a 74-68 victory on the Forest Park campus.  

Cameron Lockett once again led the way for the Archers as he turned in a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds, including hitting 8 of 9 from the charity stripe.  Raushaun Amos came off the bench to score 11 points, including 3 three pointers, while Jalen Wadlington scored 10 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 4 assists.  Maurice Golden scored 8 points and blocked 3 shots, while Sterling Wooten added 8 points, including a perfect 4-4 from the free throw line.  Marquis Pepper added 7 points including a running floater at the end of the first half to pull the Archers to within 3 points heading into the break.  STLCC outscored the Lewis & Clark bench 32-19 on the night.

The Archers improve to 5-6 on the year and host Harper College on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm on the Forest Park campus.
