RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. Will Adler turned in a 20-point performance while Ramses Sandifer added 19, leading the way as five Arkansas Tech players reached double figures as the Wonder Boys (3-10, 1-6 Great American Conference) fought their way to an 85-74 win over No. 15/19 Southern Nazarene (12-3, 5-2) on Thursday night at Tucker Coliseum. 
 
NEXT UP
The Wonder Boys play host to Oklahoma Baptist on Saturday in a 3 p.m. contest. 
HOW IT HAPPENED
Southern Nazarene claimed a lead early in the first half, going ahead 8-4 just under three minutes into the game.
Back-to-back 3-pointers by Adler and Sandifer gave Tech its first lead of the contest at 10-8 with 16:36 remaining in the opening half, and at the 15:15 mark another 3-pointer by Adler stretched the Tech advantage to 13-8.
Yet another 3-pointer by Adler pushed Tech's lead to eight (24-16) at the 12:04 mark.
SNU twice pulled to within two in the ensuing minutes, but after a dunk by Noah Starkey pulled the Crimson Storm to within 30-28 at the 8:06 mark, Tech stretched its lead yet again and went into the half with a nine-point (43-34) advantage.
The Tech lead hit double digits on Tech's first possession of the second half, as Ramses Sandifer buried a 3-pointer with 19:35 to play that stretched the Tech lead to 12 (46-34).
SNU rallied with a 9-1 run to pull to within four (47-43) with 16:48 remaining, but an Alex Brown 3-pointer created a bit of separation as the Tech lead went back to seven (50-43) with 16:40 on the clock.
The Wonder Boys doubled that advantage in the ensuing minutes, claiming a 14-point (65-51) lead with 12:44 remaining on a Freddy Lee jumper.
SNU quickly closed that gap, pulling to within two (67-65) with 5:41 remaining on a Noah Starkey layup, but Tech outscored the Crimson Storm 8-1 over the next three minutes to claim a nine-point (75-66) advantage with 2:18 to play.
SNU twice pulled to within five before the Wonder Boys puilled away over the final minute.
