Shepherd not kind to Mountain Lions

ATHENS — Sophomore forward Terry Hopewell recorded a double-double of 20 points and 13 rebounds, but the Concord University men's basketball team couldn't quite pull off the upset Saturday afternoon as Shepherd University defeated the Mountain Lions, 89-75, in Mountain East Conference play at the Carter Center.

Hopewell's double-double was his third in the last seven games and fourth on the season. Concord (8-17, 5-14 MEC) placed three other players in double figures with Mike Boyd adding 11 and the duo of Paul Byrd and Jalen Camper scoring 10 apiece. Camper also tallied six rebounds off the bench.

Shepherd was led by Naim Muhammad, who scored 21 points on 9-for-13 shooting.

The Mountain Lions will return to action 7:30 p.m. Wednesday for their final road game of the regular season at the University of Charleston.


Shepherd 90, Concord 77

Junior forward Andrea Bertrand scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds pushing her over the 1,000-point, 500-rebounds plateaus for her career in a 90-77 defeat for the Concord University women's basketball team against Shepherd University.

Bertrand became the sixth player in Mountain Lion history to reach 1,000 points and 500 rebounds despite being called for her fifth foul with six minutes remaining  in the  contest.

Melea Smith came off the bench to post career-highs in points and rebounds with 20 points and eight boards.

Smith also established a career-best in made three-pointers with four.
