Oskaloosa–Seven players hit the double-digit mark as the William Penn men’s basketball team dropped Moody Bible 123-67 in non-conference play Saturday.

#3 WPU (5-0) nearly doubled up the Archers (0-1) by outshooting them 54.8%-34.2% and outrebounding them 63-34.

The hosts opened the contest with the first six points and continued to pour it on, leading 30-9 just 7:17 into the afternoon. The crew had already scored 43 points with nine minutes still to go, but slowed down entering halftime, holding onto a 62-39 halftime advantage.

The navy and gold again found their way when they came back onto the hardwood, going on a 40-9 run to start the second stanza and the rest was history.

William Penn committed just nine turnovers in the victory, while taking the ball away from Moody Bible 16 times.

Dominique Shaw (Sr., Lufkin, Texas, Wellness and Recreation) headed the charge with an all-around superb outing of 19 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. The senior knocked down five three-pointers.

Terrell Thompson (Sr., Indianapolis, Ind., Wellness and Recreation) was next with 18 points, while Jovontae Carleton (Jr., El Cerrito, Calif., Sociology) was one behind him with 17 points to lead all non-starters.

Brandon Trotter (Sr., Louisville, Ky., Kinesiology) tallied 15 points in addition to three steals, while the duo of JC Washington (Sr., Houston, Texas, Sociology) and Corbin Medley (Sr., Rogersville, Mo., General Accounting) both finished with 14 points. Washington was nearly perfect from the floor at 7-for-8 and also pulled down nine boards.

Mikeal Donaldson (Sr., Columbia, S.C.) joined the double-figure club as well with 10 points. Isaac Sanders (So., Lexington, Mo., Industrial Technology) contributed seven and Darius Wheeler (Jr., Jonesboro, Ga., Sports Administration) matched Shaw with six assists.

Next Up: William Penn remains in Oskaloosa next Tuesday to host Nebraska Christian in non-conference action at 7:30 p.m. The game will also serve as Equality Night.
