Ben Johnson scored 20 points and added 13 rebounds – both game-highs – and Nate Carson added 19 points as the University of Maine at Farmington men’s basketball continued its run through the North Atlantic Conference with an 86-65 win over Lyndon State on Saturday.

“Our plan was to go inside-out,” UMF coach Dick Meader said. “We did that early and did a good job getting it inside. Ben is really starting to put it together. He did a nice job. He runs the floor so well and he really forces defenses to get back.”

The Beavers, which used a 14-3 run late in the second half to put the Hornets away, improved to 6-4 overall and 6-0 in NAC play.

Lyndon State dropped to 0-11, 0-5.

Pet Sumner scored 16 points and Manchester native Kevin Leary added 10 for UMF as well.
