Indians Go 2-0 in First Road Games

Indians Go 2-0 in First Road Games

The Indians hit the road for the first time this season with two games in Alabama. 

The first stop was in Hanceville to play Wallace State-Hanceville on Friday evening. 

Chipola focused on getting the ball in the paint and had a good showing from it's front court. Eric Cobb led the team with 13 points, Cedric Wright had 11, and Yuat Alok had 10. The Indians won 69-50.

"We were encouraged by our balance in scoring. Our size up front was especially effective throughout the night and I felt our depth played a major role in our success," said Coach Bret Campbell.

On Saturday, the Indians made their way to Boaz, AL where they faced Snead State. 

Chipola overcame a slow start and foul trouble to win with a final of 80-73. Jahshire Hardnett had 23 points, Deyshawn Martin had 14, and Taevon Ashmeade had 11. Mohamed Touray also came up big with six clutch free throws to seal the game. 

"Road games are always challenging in college basketball. We were able to stretch our lead to 17 in the second half and fortunately hung on going down the stretch," said Campbell. "Once again, our depth played a major role in our success."

Both men's and women's basketball will be back in action this coming weekend at home for the Milton Johnson Classic. The women will play at 5:00 p.m. and the men at 7:00 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday evenings (Nov. 18-19). Tickets are available for purchase at the gate.
