BARBOURVILLE  – Union College guard Tyler Wagner (SR/Corbin, Ky.) scored a career-high 26 points off the bench, as the Bulldog men’s basketball team rolled to their seventh consecutive victory on Wednesday night against Montreat, 109-74, in Appalachian Athletic Conference action at Robsion Arena.

With the victory, Union is now 16-4 overall on the year, 10-1 in the AAC. Montreat fell to 5-10, 4-7 with the defeat.

To open the contest, Union came out a bit sluggish, as Montreat nailed back-to-back baskets in the first 2 minutes of action to go up quickly 5-0. The lead, however, was short-lived for the Cavaliers, as the Bulldogs grabbed their first lead of the contest at the 15-minute mark at 9-7.
