ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - Luke Appel scored 20 points Saturday as the third-ranked Kirkwood Eagles rolled by Black Hawk College, 93-60, in a non-conference basketball game.

Appel poured in 18 points in the first half, but played only a few minutes in the second half after being inadvertently hit in the face. Kirkwood Coach Bryan Petersen said Appel could have returned, but felt it was not necessary with the Eagles holding a comfortable lead.

All-American Doug Wilson did not play Saturday. Petersen said Wilson suffered a hip injury against Iowa Lakes last Wednesday and was withheld as a precautionary measure. He expects Wilson to play when Kirkwood hosts Ellsworth on Wednesday.

Bailey Dee scored 12 points for Kirkwood, which raised its record to 18-2. Allante Pickens made three 3-pointers and scored 11 points. Devonte Thedford had 10 points.
