Forward Deante Johnson (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) paced four double-digit scorers with 19 points, as the Union College men’s basketball team coasted to a convincing 89-70 victory over Tennessee Wesleyan on Saturday night in Appalachian Athletic Conference play at Robsion Arena.

The win was Union’s 10th straight, as the Bulldogs moved to 19-4 overall on the year, 12-1 in the AAC with the victory. Tennessee Wesleyan fell to 10-12, 5-9 in the AAC with the loss.

In the first three minutes of the contest, the pace of play was fast and furious, as Union clung to a 9-8 lead over TWC. Here, the host Bulldogs went on a big run that essentially put the visitors away, as a 14-2 spurt put Union up 23-10 with 12:51 left in the half.
