The Concord University men’s basketball team suffered its first loss of the season Tuesday night when Alderson-Broaddus defeated the Mountain Lions 83-66.

The loss drops Concord’s record to 3-1 overall this season and 1-1 in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Alderson-Broaddus improved its record to 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the WVIAC with the victory.

The Mountain Lions were led in the loss by senior forward Damien Tunstalle and sophomore forward Jordan Davis. Tunstalle scored a team-high 12 points on 5-for-13 shooting while Davis scored 10 points and tied sophomore guard Paul Byrd with a team-best four rebounds.

CU never held a lead vs. Alderson-Broaddus, but were able to stay close with A-B for most of the first half. However, Alderson-Broaddus was able to extend its lead to a commanding 11-point edge at 38-27 going into halftime.

Concord opened the second half on a 7-2 after Tunstalle hit a layup, Byrd drained two free throws and freshman guard Jake Bischoff sank a three-pointer that cut Alderson-Broaddus’ lead to just six points (40-34) with 18:16 left to play in the second half. But any thoughts of a comeback were crushed when the Battlers answered with a 16-5 run of their own, stretching their lead to 56-39 with the eventual 83-66 win coming 12 minutes later.

Kurklin Bohanon led Alderson-Broaddus to the win with a game-high 20 points.
