Transylvania University (1-6) came out with a fast start and earned a 93-82 win against the Anderson University (1-1) men’s basketball team during Saturday’s matchup in Lexington, Ky.


  • Transylvania’s largest lead was a 45-22 advantage with 4 minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the first half.
  • The Ravens outscored the Pioneers 50-44 in the second half.
  • Camden Smith knocked down a 3-pointer with 4:08 left in the second half to cut Transylvania’s lead to 81-73.
  • The Pioneers powered to a 41-26 rebounding advantage



  • I am wildly encouraged by [Saturday’s] loss. We did not get off the bus with the intensity and focus we needed. We did not have a great start. We did not have a great first half. We really got beat up on the glass. We turned the ball over too much. We took bad shots.
  • We came out of the locker room with a great focus and intensity and had a second half where we executed on offense and applied much more disciplined pressure on defense. This game presented a lot of opportunities for us to learn and grow, and if we take those, we’ll look back on it as a real positive.
  • My hat is off to Transylvania. I am sure they were disappointed with the outcome on Thursday, and they played with a veteran edge [on Saturday].


  • Anderson goes head-to-head with Manchester University (2-1) on Friday at 6 p.m. in North Manchester.
