Lafayette (8-4) vs. Paul Dunbar (10-3) January 4, 2000
Lafayette's coach Don Adkins started the following lineup: 6-2 Sr. J. D. Dixon, 6-1 Jr. Nick Everman, 6-4 Sr. Rod Napier, 6-2 Jr. Robert Madison, and 5-9 Jr. James Gentry. Dunbar coach Eddie Oakley countered with 6-4 Jr. Rod Lyvers, 6-3 Jr. Clay Tate, 5-10 Sr. Rayshon Williams, 5-10 Sr. Brannon Dunn, and 6-5 Sr. Alexious Osumenya.
Lafayette came into the game hoping to rebound from a less-than-stellar performance in the Fifth Third Bank Kentucky Holiday Classic last week. Dunbar, on the other hand, wanted to retain their momentum gained through a championship run through the Berea tournament.
This game will probably not go into a time capsule as the two teams
combined for over 50 turnovers. Lafayette led 37-30 at halftime,
but Dunbar scrapped back to take a 47-46 lead at the end of three
periods. Robert Madison hit two free throws and a key "three"
to give Lafayette the lead and 5-11 Jr. Quinton Roberts hit some
key free throws down the stretch to allow Lafayette to hold on for a 67-64
win. Lafayette was led by Madison with 20 and Rod Lyvers
paced Dunbar with 27 points and 13 rebounds.
