Evansville junior Davonte McAlister didn’t make much of a mark in the first half of Friday’s Rock Valley Conference boys basketball game with visiting Whitewater.

He changed his stat line and the final score in a big way with 15 points after halftime as the Blue Devils (10-7, 9-4 RVC) downed the Whippets, 59-52.

Whitewater took a narrow 27-24 lead into halftime on the heels of 14 points from sophomore Jake Martin.

Martin finished with a game-high 22 points, but it proved to not be enough as the Whippets lost at the hands of McAlister and the Blue Devils to fall to 3-15 overall and 2-12 in the Rock Valley Conference.

McAlister ended up with 18 points.
