Clark Atlanta tames the Lane Dragons

Panthers move to 13-1 on the season.

ATLANTA–It was cold in Atlanta on Thursday night but not nearly as cold as Lane College’s three-point percentage. Clark Atlanta (13-1, 7-0 SIAC) shot 46 percent from the floor and 40 percent from deep in an 81-54 victory over the Lane Dragons (4-8, 3-5 SIAC) on Thursday night.  Lane was a paltry 3-19 on three-point shots, its 15 percent shooting was colder than the 27 degrees outside at tip-off.

Balanced scoring

The Panthers had two starters in double figures, along with three players off the bench to hit for double digits.  Leading the way was Austin Donaldson with 17 points and a 3-5 effort from behind the line.

Lane was led by Tevyn Roberts who made a living at the free throw line (8-8) en route to 16 points on the evening.  The game was reasonably close at the half with CAU up by just 10 points at 35-25 but they outscored Lane 46-29 in the second half.  The Dragons had 24 turnovers to just six assists in the game.

Both teams will remain in the AUC on Saturday.  Clark Atlanta will host LeMoyne-Owen while Lane will make the short walk up the street to Morehouse.
