Ecclesia went back on the road to play against Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Waiting for Ecclesia was a high-pressure defense that Ecclesia knew about but was still not ready for. Ecclesia's offense had 15 turnovers in the first half, but when they got free they shot well, shooting 45% from the field, which only saw them down by 9 points going into halftime. There was some hope as the Ecclesia bench produced with Freshman Nicholas Coble continuing his hot shooting as he finished with 22 points and 9 rebounds to go along with Freshman David Lynch’s 11 points. Baptist Bible's defense was still stingy in the second half and saw Ecclesia shoot only 39% from the field after the break. In the end, the Patriots got the decisive win 110-84.
Royals will get a full week to prepare for next Saturday’s quick redemption match against Kansas Christian College.
