Men’s college basketball
Ball State rallies for win from 23 down
The Ball State men’s basketball team turned in one of the most improbable comebacks in program history Saturday night as the Cardinals rallied from a 23-point second half deficit to defeat Mid-American Conference rival Central Michigan 65-58 at McQuirk Arena. The victory raises the Cardinals’ record to 17-11 on the season and 9-5 in MAC play as they sit in sole possession of first place in the MAC West Division.
Freshman guard Jesse Berry led the comeback as he had a phenomenal second half performance scoring 17 points off the bench. Berry connected on 6-of-9 from the field and 2-of-4 from three-point land to spark the attack as he was one of four Cardinals in double figures.
Junior guard and Plymouth grad Randy Davis shook off a tough first half due to foul trouble and added 13 points, 11 of which came in the second half. Davis scored eight points in the final 3:30 of the game to secure the victory as he nailed two straight three-pointers in the clutch. Freshman guard Tyrae Robinson added 11 points and six assists off the bench as he shot 3-of-4 from the field and 5-of-8 from the charity stripe.
The Cardinals’ 17 victories are the most under Taylor’s tenure and the most for BSU since posting a 23-12 record in 2001-02.
