UT Martin Trounces Bethel for Second Win of the Season
After a thrilling win in the season-opener, the UT Martin Men's Basketball team continued their winning ways with a 95-60 victory over the Bethel Wildcats. The Skyhawks hadn't played in 13 days, but performed like a team that was in mid-season form; five players were in double-figures in scoring for UT Martin. Junior forward, Cameron Holden, led the way with a game-high 21-point performance.
Jaron Williams and Kenton Eskridge were inserted into the starting five for the first time this season, and they did not disappoint; Williams put up 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists while Eskridge brought down 6 rebounds, and went perfect from the charity stripe. As for the rest of the starting five; Eden Holt chipped in 14 points on 11 shots, Eman Sertovic had 2 points with one make in the contest, and Ajani Kennedy picked up his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
UT Martin will begin OVC play on Friday when they travel to take on Southeast Missouri State. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30.
