The details were in the Roadrunners’ favor: Angelina College had not lost consecutive games since the opening weekend of the season back in November, and the ‘Runners were 9-2 at Shands Gymnasium.
Lee College changed those details with Saturday’s 107-92 win over the Roadrunners.
AC’s loss followed Wednesday’s heartbreaker at Lamar State-Port Arthur, leaving the ‘Runners with their first back-to-back losses in three months. Lee built a 20-point first-half lead and held off AC’s late charge to forge a three-way tie for third place in the conference’s South Zone. AC, Lee and Blinn are all 8-6 in conference play with five games remaining in the regular season.
Corinthian Ramsey led the Roadrunners with 28 points, and teammate Shane Temara hit for a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Kahari Beaufort added 12 and Zach Shepherd 11 in the loss.
The Rebels got 26 points from Tony Farmer, 20 from Branden Jenkins and 19 from Duop Reath.
AC (15-9, 8-6) travel to Beeville on Wednesday to take on Coastal Bend College at 7:30 p.m.
