Raiders Fall at Chipola

MARIANNA, Fla. – Northwest Florida men's basketball couldn't withstand the hot shooting of Chipola falling, 79-51, Wednesday in the Milton Jonson Center.

Lat Mayen scored a game-high 20 points and 16 rebounds for Chipola (13-5, 1-1). Mayen shot 6-of-14 from the field and knocked down four 3-pointers. As a team, the Indians hit 15 triples and were 15-of-36 from the floor.
