The Final AMC Game:
The Williams Baptist College basketball team traveled to St. Louis, Mo., on Saturday afternoon for its final regular season game of the season against St. Louis College of Pharmacy. A stifling effort on the defensive end of the ball led to the 35 point Eagle victory. In the first half, Williams held Pharmacy to 13 points in the frame. During the contest, the Eutectics only shot 30 percent from the floor and could only muster a 1-of-12 outing from the three point line.
Williams shot 14-of-40 from behind the arc. The 14 made threes matched the number of field goals that Pharmacy made as a team from the field. Every Eagle that played in the contest tallied points in the 15th victory of the season.
Inside the Numbers:
• Aaron Hamby (SR/Malvern, Ark.) led the team in scoring with 14 points. He was 5-of-9 from the field and 4-of-8 from behind-the-arc. Hamby also produced four rebounds and four assists.
