Lafayette jumped out to an 11-0 lead as Tates Creek missed their first ten shots from the field.  Tates Creek closed the gap to 43-37 in the fourth quarter but Lafayette, despite going eight for 20 from the free throw line in the second half, held on for a 56-47 victory.  Lafayette held a 45.8%-27.1% edge in field goal shooting and outrebounded Tates Creek 47-32.  Neither team could find the mark from the charity stripe as Tates Creek was eight of 18 and Lafayette was nine of 23 for the evening.

Lafayette was led tonight by 6-6 Jr. Nic Mullins with 13 points and seven rebounds.  Kevin Grantlin added 11 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. Darnell Dialls chipped in with eight points and seven rebounds.  Tates Creek was led tonight by 6-2 Jr. Cameron Cross with 13 points.  Michael Cross added 10 points and seven rebounds.  Justin Taylor, who was well defended by Lafayette tonight, added six points and seven rebounds.  Taylor is an excellent athlete with the ability to dominate a game if allowed to get on track.
