Milligan men’s and women’s basketball remain perfect

Thanks to two comeback victories Tuesday night, both the men’s and women’s basketball teams have remained perfect to tip off their 2015-16 seasons.

The men defeated Johnson University 104-89 in Knoxville, Tennessee, after taking over in the final two minutes of the first half. The Buffs never led over the first 20 minutes and trailed by as many as 11 late in the opening period, but used a pivotal run to close out the first half and hit some bit shots early in the second to earn the road victory.

The women’s team also generated a strong comeback after a halftime deficit, and defeated Midway University 76-62 on the road to start their season with four straight wins for the first time since at least the turn of the 21st century.
