February 7, 2015

Guard Dominique Hagans (SR/Lexington, Ky.) posted a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds, as the Union College men’s basketball gutted out their ninth consecutive victory at Milligan (Tenn.) on Wednesday night, 79-74, in a battle between the top two teams in the Appalachian Athletic Conference.

With the victory, Union grabbed sole possession of first place in the AAC standings, improving to 18-4 overall and 11-1 in the AAC. Milligan had a five-game winning streak snapped in the loss, falling to 15-6, 10-3 in the AAC with the defeat.

To open things, Milligan came out on fire, grabbing a quick 16-4 lead in the first four minutes of action off the heels of four straight made three-pointers. Union, however, clamped down on the defensive end the rest of the half, not allowing the Buffaloes to make another three the rest of the way.
