Yellow Jackets Survive Maroons In ODAC Semis

Korey Turner's layup after a steal at midcourt by Josh Talbert with nineteen seconds remaining lifted top-seeded Randolph-Macon, who trailed by as many as ten points in the second half, to a 60-59 win over #5 Roanoke in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men's Basketball semifinal at the Salem Civic Center.

Buzz Anthony (pictured), who scored eleven of his seventeen points in the second half, went nine-of-ten at the free throw line while Josh Talbert and Ian Robertson each had eleven points, Robertson with two key three-pointers in the comeback effort.

The Yellow Jackets are now 25-2 and will play either Virginia Wesleyan or Lynchburg Sunday at 3:30pm for the ODAC title. Randolph-Macon, winners of the last three regular season titles, seeks their first tournament crown since 2015 and first under head coach Josh Merkel, who won his 100th career game as Yellow Jacket head coach in the victory.
