Taevaunn Prince scored a career-high 38 points, the sixth-highest ever in MSSU single-game history, but the men's basketball team couldn't complete the comeback and the Lions fell 80-70 today at Fort Hays State inside Gross Memorial Coliseum. 

Prince led the Lions (8-5, 2-2 MIAA) and grabbed his fourth-straight double-double with 38 points and 14 rebounds, both career highs for the junior. He shot 9-19 from the field and made 18-21 from the free-throw line. The 18 free-throws is just two off the single-game record at MSSU. The 38 points is the most since Jason Adams scored 42 against Fort Hays in 2012. Lane Barlow scored 11 points, while Greg Renfroe added eight points and five rebounds. 

Fort Hays (8-4, 2-2 MIAA had three score in double-figures led by 21 points and nine rebounds from Craig Nicholson. He also added seven assists, while Royce Williams scored 18. 

A three pointer from Prince gave the Lions a 3-2 lead early on and a pair of freebies from Prince a minute later gave Southern a 5-4 lead, but that would be the only two leads the Lions had in the game. Hays led by as many as 14 in the first half and took a 38-26 lead into the break. 

The Tigers pushed their lead to 14 again (48-34) with 14:22 left in the second half, but Southern chipped away at the lead, going on a 19-10 run to cut the deficit to five (58-53) after a pair of free-throws from Prince with just over eight minutes to go in the game. A layup from Renfroe with 6:48 to go cut the lead to two (60-58), but that would be as close as the Lions would get. The Tigers went on a 15-7 run and pushed its lead to ten (75-65) with 1:50 to go. A free-throw from Nicholson with 34 seconds to go gave the Tigers the 10-point win. 

The Lions shot 88 percent from the free-throw line, but hit just 32 percent from the field and 21 percent from long-range. 

Southern will be back in action this week when the Lions return home to play host to Central Oklahoma on Thursday, Jan. 8 at 7:30 pm on Robert Corn Court inside the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center.
