INA, Ill. (Nov. 11, 2013) – The Rend Lake College Warriors controlled the court Monday night in their home opener against St. Louis Community College, ending the night with a 99-69 victory over the Archers.
Rend Lake went into halftime with a 55-32 lead as returning player Montez Williams (East St. Louis) scored 13 points, followed by freshman Ruben Gosa (Vine Grove, Ky.) with 11. Head Coach Randy House said the team was playing with their heads this game, which was proven by the high number of rebounds and low number of turnovers throughout the game.
The Warriors kept at a near 30-point lead in the second half as top scorers Jeril Taylor (Louisville, Ky.), Paul Knapp (Flora) and Cortez Macklin (Louisville, Ky.) dominated the goal. Together, the trio scored more than half the points in the half at nine, seven and seven respectively, helping Taylor score a game-high of 18.
After the game, Coach House said, “Last year was last year, and we’ve got a new team on the floor now. We’re a good basketball team and we’re really excited about where we are and where we’re headed.”
Rend Lake is now 3-1 and will host Illinois Central College at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 before going on the road to Lindenwood-Belleville University on Nov. 18 and to Parkland College on Nov. 20.
Warrior Alumni Weekend is Nov. 16 and 17 at RLC. Former men’s basketball players are invited to a dinner celebration on Saturday at the Rend Lake Resort and alumni game on Sunday in Waugh Gymnasium.
