Keyser stuns Southern, 83-76

KEYSER, W.Va. — Keyser won its second straight game by defeating fifth-ranked Southern 83-76 Tuesday evening in Keyser.

Wes Nelson led all scorers with 28 points, and added 12 rebounds as the Golden Tornado doubled their win total from last season — improving to 8-8.

Keyser took a 40-24 lead at halftime, but the Rams came out strong in the second half narrowing the gap to just four behind a 27-point third quarter.  Southern would make it interesting late, hitting three three-pointers in the final minute — but Keyser’s free-throw shooting down the stretch was enough to hold on for the victory.

Ryan Kunis had six assists and Josh Hoban grabbed nine rebounds for Keyser.

Clay Todd led the way for Southern with 21 points. Brian Reams and Travis Newton each scored 20 points.

Keyser will travel to face No.1 ranked team in Class AA at Robert C.Bryd on Saturday, while Southern (9-8) plays Thursday at home against Mountain Ridge.
