SHREVEPORT, La. – The no. 23 LSU Shreveport Pilots men's basketball team suffered their first loss of the season at home as they fell to a tough no. 8 Wiley College Wildcat team 83-74 on Saturday night at The Dock. The Pilots slip to 10-4 and 3-2 in the RRAC while Wiley improves to 14-2 and 4-1.

"Wiley played like a team who had something on the line and we didn't," said LSUS Head Coach Kyle Blankenship. "We simply were outcoached and outplayed tonight."

The Pilots did manage to produce four scorers in double figures as they shot 41-percent for the game. Tyrell Springer (SR/Springfield, Massachusetts) and C. J. McGill (JR/Tampa, Florida) each had 16 points coming off the bench helping the Pilot's reserves outscore Wiley's 42-19.

Anthony Walker recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds while Greg Pollins (SR/Texarkana, Texas) also added 11.

The Wildcats rebounded after their loss to no. 1 LSU Alexandria last night as they shot 50-percent tonight led by Ricardo Artis with a double-double effort of 31 points and 14 rebounds.

"We have to regroup and see if we can go get a couple of road wins next week," ended Coach Blankenship.
