BEAUMONT - Lamar University basketball fans were treated to an exciting show Thursday night at the Montagne Center as the Cardinals intrasquad scrimmage featured plenty of scoring and big plays in an 82-76 victory for the black team.
Lamar will open the regular season next Friday at 7:05 p.m. against visiting Lyon College, and will play a second scrimmage three nights earlier. The Tuesday night scrimmage will tip at 7:30 and will be free and open to the public.
The black team got a balanced scoring attack as five of its six players scored in double figures, led by senior Coy Custer and junior transfer Vincenzo Nelson with 18 apiece. The duo also combined for 14 rebounds with Custer adding three blocked shots.
The black team led 47-34 at the half, but the white team, which got a game-high 31 points from junior Tremell Adams, came all the way back to take a second half lead. The black team, which shot 46.4 percent from the field for the game, weathered the storm and pulled out the victory.
Adams shot 10-of-16 from the floor in the game, adding four 3-pointers and 7-of-8 aim from the free throw line. Returning starters Anthony Miles and Charlie Harper each had big games for the white team. Miles scored 12 points and dished out nine assists, while Harper finished with 17 points and seven boards.
