Every player on the Spring Hill College men's basketball team played and every player scored as the Badgers unleashed some pent up frustrations in a 93-32 non-conference victory over Dillard University on Monday night at the Arthur R. Outlaw Recreation Center.
Spring Hill used consistent outside shooting, a tenacious defense and a wide open full-court game to score its season-high in points and snap a seven-game losing skid.
Dillard led the contest only once at 2-0 just 45 seconds into the game, but from there it was all Badgers as Spring Hill cruised to a 49-18 halftime score and held at least a 40-point lead for the final 14 minutes of the game.
The Badgers dominated every aspect of the game outscoring Dillard by a 25-0 margin on fast break points, 29-2 off turnovers, 38-6 in the paint and 52-6 in bench scoring. SHC shot 58.3% (35-60) overall and was 48% (12-25) in 3-point attempts.
Freshman guard Jackson Fos of Abita Springs, La., scored 15 points off the bench. Sophomore guard Jayln Woods of Brookshire, Texas, also scored 12 in reserve while starters junior guard Todd Martin out of Mobile St. Paul's Episcopal School and sophomore forward Frederick Gatson of Riverdale, Ga., added 11 and 10 points respectively. The Badgers out-rebounded Dillard (1-7) by a 39-24 margin.
The SHC defense held the Bleu Devils to 28% (14-50) from the field and just 10% (1-10) from 3-point distance. Badger defenders took away 13 steals and created 20 turnovers by DU while the Devils managed just four steals and befitted from eight SHC turnovers. Jarrain Jenkins led Dillard with 16 points.
Spring Hill (1-12) will next host Dillard University (1-6) in a non-conference game in the Arthur R. Outlaw Recreation Center at 7:30 p.m. on Monday.
