from staff reports

   Senior wing Lance Ashby scored a career-high and school-record 52 points in leading the Milligan College Buffaloes to a 105-67 rout of UVA-Wise.
   Ashby connected on 17-of-27 from the floor and hit 9-of-14 from three-point land in his scoring binge. He broke the old record of 49 points held by Tonnie Cash (1967) against Wofford and his own last year.
   Michael Morrell chipped in with 20 points on seven-of-12 from the floor, which included three-of-six from distance as the Buffs cruised to an easy win.
   The Buffs outrebounded the Cavaliers by a 51-34 margin led by the efforts of Derek Dyer who hauled down 15 boards. The Buffs led 51-28 at the break with the Buffs holding the Cavs to eight-of-32 shooting (25 percent) in the opening half.
   Stacy Ervin paced the Cavs with 21 points and teammate Zack Moore added 16 to the UVA-Wise effort.
   The Buffs pounded out 15 hits in a 13-4 victory over Mars Hill, with Jeremy 'Bam' Christian leading the way with a three-for-five day. Christian belted a home run and drove in four to help pitcher Matt Simmons to his first win of the young season.
   Chris Archer was three-for-five with three RBI in the contest.
   Milligan scored a pair of runs in the last of the first and added three more in the third to open a five run lead.
   Simmons went five and one-third frames giving up four runs (all earned) on five hits, while striking out three and walking one. Todd Speas pitched three and two-thirds innings to pick up his first save of the season.
   Scott Shealy finished two-for-three with four runs scored in the Buffs leadoff spot.
