BLUEFIELD, Va. -

Sophomore guard Andrew Wilson missed setting NAIA history by two steals in the Rams 92-73 victory over West Virginia Tech in the final game of the Ramey Car Classic at the Dome Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon.


The sophomore from Cucamonga, Calif., scored 10 points, provided 15 assists and completed his first career-triple-double with 12 steals -- tying Matt Lynch, Graceland (Iowa) for the second most all-time steals in NAIA Division I Men's Basketball history. Duane Glenn if Pittsburgh-Bradford set the all-time mark of 13 Jan. 20, 1993 against Daemen (N.Y.). 

Senior Byron Carpenter scored a game-high 28 points on 10-of-13 shooting while junior Kearsten Marion recorded his sixth 20 point game of the season with his 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting including 6-of-9 shooting from 3-point land. Sophomore forward Deante Hallums rounded out the starters in double-figures with 16 points and just missed his second career double-double against the Golden Bears with a game-high nine rebounds. 

Hallums made headlines against WV Tech in the team's first contest of the season on Nov. 20 when he scored a career-high 23 points on 11-of-11 shooting and pulled down a career-high 14 rebounds. 

Bluefield held a 15 point (44-29) advantage at the break then scored 48 points in the second half to secure the 19 point victory ensuring the season sweep of the Golden Bears. 

The Rams return to action next Saturday when they travel to Lynchburg, Va. to take part in the 1st Annual VUL/Centra Hill City Classic against Virginia University of Lynchburg with a 6 p.m. tip. The Rams fell, 80-74, in the season opener against the Dragons on Nov. 3 at the Dome.
