Men's Basketball concludes Bahamas trip with 96-81 victory over CTG Knights
NASSAU, Bahamas -- The Southern Miss men's basketball team concluded its Bahamas trip with a 96-81 win over the CTG Knights on Friday night inside Kendall Isaacs Gym.
"It was a great trip," head coach Doc Sadler said. "The best thing we got is three games with it. We are going to be able to go home with a lot of tape, and we can teach these guys what we want. They are so young and can take so many things we've learned on this trip. All those things being said, we had a good time, the kids had fun, and I just want to thank the Hardwood Club for giving us this opportunity."
Southern Miss, as it did all through the trip, opened with a strong first quarter, this time leading 33-14. CTG fired right back to get within 49-41 at halftime, but the Golden Eagles regained their footing in the third quarter to outscore their foes 30-19 and take full control.
Tyree Griffin continued his torrid pace on the trip, leading everyone with 29 points with an 11-for-13 clip at the free-throw line. Dominic Magee had a team-high eight rebounds to go with his 13 points, and Cortez Edwards recorded 20 points on 10-of-13 shooting.
LaDavius Draine went 4-for-5 off the bench for nine points.
The team will now enjoy a free Saturday on Paradise Island before returning to the U.S. on Sunday.
