DeMarcus Cousins’ squad in The Basketball Tournament will live another day after taking down KBC in round two on Saturday at Frederick Douglass High School.
Despite 32 points on 8-13 shooting from deep via former Tennessee sharpshooter Chris Lofton, KCB fell in a close game to Loyalty is Love by a score of 91-80.
KCB trailed by only three points as we entered the Elam Ending (where they remove the time and set a winning score) but Loyalty is Love quickly rattled off a few buckets right at the rim to end the game at 91.
To go along with Lofton’s 32, former Western Kentucky guard AJ Slaughter contributed 14 points and Georgetown College product Victor Moses added 10 points. Loyalty is Love was led by 20 points from former Marquette guard Darius Johnson-Odom and another 17 points plus five rebounds by former Baylor star Isaiah Austin.
Loyalty is Love will advance to the third and final round of the Lexington Regional on Sunday where they’ll take on the winner of D2 and the Fort Wayne Champs.
