The Shenandoah University men’s basketball team fell to Randolph-Macon University on Wednesday with a score of 47 to 74 in a 7 p.m. in-conference matchup.

The Hornets men started off slow, missing their first three shots and not scoring for the first three minutes.

Though Shenandoah followed this with back-to-back three-pointers to take the lead early on, Randolph-Macon went on a 16-0 run to take a 20-6 lead, and maintained their lead for the rest of the game.

Shenandoah seemed unable to maintain possession in the first half. While the Hornets committed 11 turnovers, they had only 11 rebounds.

At the end of the half, Randolph-Macon, currently the leading team the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) with a 7-0 in-conference record, was ahead 34 to 15.

In the second half, the Hornets made just 30 percent of their shots.

Senior Malcolm Clark led the Hornets with 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals. Sophomore Donald McHugh also had a good game, with 10 points and 5 rebounds.

The men look to get a win this Saturday in their 3 p.m. home contest against Virginia Wesleyan College.
