CSC men close season with win

CHADRON - Kendrick Holliman poured in 22 points and three others joined him double figures to help the Chadron State College men's basketball team end its 2013-14 season on a high note with an 83-74 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference victory over Black Hills State.

The Eagles (11-15, 8-14 RMAC) end the season in ninth place in the conference.

Holliman, a junior from Spanish Fort, Ala., scored 14 points in the back and forth first half and added eight more in the second half as the Eagles began to pull away.

Seniors David Downey and Grant Stone both scored 13 points and Evan Brooks chipped in with 11 off the bench.

The game was well played throughout. The score was tied eight times and the lead changed hands another five times. The Eagles shot over 50 percent for the game - they hit 33 of 59 from the field - and Black Hills State made 29 of 61 (47.5 percent) but Chadron State only committed six turnovers and scored 17 second chance points to pull away late down the stretch.

The second half was nip and tuck and after the Jackets tied things up at 63-63 with seven minutes to play, Chadron State outscored Black Hills 20-9 to put the game away.

Black Hills State's Cameron Anderson led the Yellow Jackets with 20 points and eight rebounds. Also for Black Hills, Joey Mitchell scored 12 and Myles Henry finished with 11.
