The Concord University men's basketball team lost to Alderson-Broaddus Tuesday night, 81-69, in West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference action from the Carter Center.

The Mountain Lions and Battlers were originally scheduled to play on Jan. 17, but the game was postponed due to inclement weather. The result was Concord (11-8 overall, 7-8 WVIAC) playing in its second game in as many days.

Four players scored in double figures for Concord with sophomore guard Mike Boyd's 16 points leading the way. Boyd also passed out a team-best five assists.

Sophomore guard Thomas Brown (12), senior forward Damien Tunstalle (11) and sophomore Jordan Davis (10) rounded out Concord's scoring leaders. The trio was also Concord's top rebounders on the night as Tunstalle's eight rebounds were a team-best. Davis and Brown chipped in six and five rebounds respectively.

Senior guard Eric Bailey scored nine points, finishing just short of his second double-digit scoring effort of the season. Junior forward Nick Ruffin blocked two shots.

Alderson-Broaddus held advantages over Concord in shooting (51 percent – 44 percent), rebounding (36-28) and free throws made (26-21). The Mountain Lions' bench outscored A-B's 39-23. Both teams committed 15 turnovers.

Scoring was scarce early on as both teams combined for just 20 points through the first 10 minutes of the first half, with Alderson-Broaddus clinging to an 11-9 lead. CU tied the game up on four occasions during the remainder of the half, but was unable to break through for the lead. Alderson-Broaddus went into halftime leading 33-32.

Concord kept the game close for the majority of the second half, the Battlers took a 16-point lead, 72-56, with four minutes to play after going on  a 20-6 run that lasted nine minutes to help ensure its 81-69 victory.

Kurklin Bohanon scored 28 points for Alderson-Broaddus.

Concord returns to action Thursday at Charleston. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
