The victory puts Plymouth 10-11 and 7-6 in the FC.

“I couldn’t be any prouder of them,” Plymouth coach Troy Keene said.

Western falls to 15-5 overall and 11-2 in league play.

Sophomore Tyson Beebe led the Big Red with 25 points. He was 10-of-13 from the field and 3-of-3 at the free-throw line.

The ‘Riders led 40-37 at the end of the third quarter. But the Big Red went on an 11-0 run starting late in the period to take a 48-40 lead with 2:40 left in the game.

Western junior Nate Good led the attack for the ‘Riders with 17 points in the first half.

Good hit five-three pointers before intermission, including two back-to-back shots within 20 seconds in the first quarter and a buzzer beater to end the half. He finished the night with 21 points.
