Griffons fall to William Jewell 76-60 in Hillyard Classic

[caption id="attachment_13849" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Cedric Clinkscales came away with a double-double in the loss to William-Jewell. *Photo by Jason Brown[/caption] Missouri Western Men's Basketball couldn't create enough offense to overcome William Jewell's 3-point shooting.  William Jewell made 10 3-pointers, downing the Griffons 76-60 in the first game of the Hillyard Classic at MWSU Fieldhouse on Nov. 16. Western dropped to 1-1 on the season after going 2-for-17 from 3-point distance. "I just felt we got manhandled," coach Tom Smith said. "It was offense tonight. You aren't going to win games scoring 60 points at home." Cedric Clinkscales led the Griffons with 21 points and also grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds. Clinkscales provided the lone bright spot for Western's offense. The Griffons were down by 10 at halftime but couldn't make a serious run in the second half as the long distance shot was not going in. "As soon as they punched us a little bit in the first half, our answer was 'let's shoot another 3,'" Smith said. "We've got Ced in there dominating; we would have been very content to just stay inside and get the ball inside." Western cut the lead down to 56-50 with just over seven minutes to play but couldn't cut into the lead further. William Jewell ran the score out to 66-51 over the next three minutes and the Griffons never got close again. Western's guards were not able to add much scoring and struggled from the field. James Harris went 1-for-6 while Reed Mells shot 0-for-5. Adarius Fulton and Dylan Frantz, who started the game, shot a combined 4-for-9. William Jewell had four players register double figures in scoring; Dillon Deck had 15 points and 9 rebounds; Taylor John scored 13 points and added seven rebounds, Ricky Tisdale scored 11 points; and Devonte Bell dropped in 10 points. "Lack of execution, that's what it was for us tonight," Clinkscales said. "We were rushing shots. I think we tried to match them 3-for-3 and it wasn't working for us tonight. We have to do better." The Griffons were beat on the boards 34-30 and lost the turnover battle 16-to-13. Smith expects the physicality to continue as the season goes on. "I don't think that William Jewell is MIAA level," Smith said. "We will see a lot of teams more physical than them." Western will have a chance to bounce back from the home loss Saturday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. as they take on Rockhurst University at the MWSU Fieldhouse in the second night of the Hillyard Classic. "We will come back in the morning and reassess ourselves tomorrow and hopefully get it done," Clinkscales said. "I tried to stay positive the whole time. It's just one of those nights and we just got to regroup."
