Michael France scored a game high 24 points as he and the Trevecca Trojans (9-9) found a way out of their shooting slump to stop a three game skid and get back to a game of .500 in TranSouth play at 2-3 by defeating visiting Lyon College (6-10, 0-4).

The two teams traded a total of 36 turnovers and as in the previous game, the game was won when Trevecca converted their 19 turnovers into 24 points, while Lyon converted just 10.

The Trojans ended the first half and began the second on an 8-2 run before the two teams traded baskets for much of the second half. The lead grew to as many as 13 points and the Trojans held on for a seven point victory.

Peyton Henry and JP Nyadaro both added 10 points off the bench for the Trojans.

Slater Belew led the Scots with 13 points.

The Trojans will take a week off from games and will host No. 17 Union University next Thursday night (1-20).

The Lady Trojans (7-10) improved to 4-2 in the TranSouth by knocking off visiting Lyon College (10-7, 2-3), 75-66, Thursday night in the Moore Gymnasium. The Lady Trojans took a five point lead into halftime and extended that lead to 11 by starting the second half on a 9-3 run.

The Lady Trojans were solid on defense forcing 22 Lyon turnovers and converting them into 23 points. The Scots rallied midway through the second half to go up a point, 56-55. It was then, at the 6:30 mark, that the Lady Trojans bounced back, scoring 12 of the next 16 points and taking over the game completely.

Chelsey Taylor led the Lady Trojans with 14, with London Elie adding 13.

K.K. Hodges led the Scots with 21, with an added 20 by Lauren Ramsey.

The next game for the Lady Trojans will be next Thursday when they welcome two time defending national champion and No. 1 team in the country, Union Universitiy.

A group of five Trevecca students and alumni need to raise about $100,000 if their dream of establishing a Nazarene ministry in Croatia is going to come true.

The Trevecca students, who will serve as Mission Corps volunteers through the Church of the Nazarene, are planning to leave for Croatia in August  as the Nazarene Church’s first missionaries there in five years.

Gospel choir sings in Haitian churches

More than 60 members of Trevecca’s new gospel choir spent last weekend singing in Haitian Nazarene churches in Orlando, FL.

The choir, which formed this semester, took its first road trip to five small Haitian congregations to minister to Haitian community in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake and to promote Trevecca to the students of the Haitian churches.

“I think we accomplished everything we set out to accomplish and more. We were both touched by lives and touched lives, we saw a great response from the Haitian students, and our students grew through the experience,” said Dr. John Ray, the director of the Gospel Choir.
