The Chipola Indians basketball team improved to 2-0 following their 89-57 thrashing of Brevard Community College Saturday night at the Milton H. Johnson Health Center.

 

The Indians left little doubt about their power as they never trailed in the 40 minutes of play. The Indians led by as much as 19 points in the first half of play, taking a 46-25 lead into the locker room.

 

The Indians took the court following the intermission and picked up where they left off with Jamarcus Ellis picking up consecutive baskets to bolster the lead.

 

With the Indians leading 83-41, Coach Greg Heiar filled the court with his reserve players, giving Jamarcus Ellis, DeAndre Thomas and Victor Dubovitsky a much deserved rest.

 

Ellis, Thomas and Dubovitsky recorded only four minutes of playing time in the second half before giving way to the reserves.

 

Leading the Indians in scoring was Dubovitsky with 17 points, followed closely by Ellis and Thomas with 16 points each. Eric Price was on the board with 14, followed by Mario Little who came off the bench to put up nine points.

 

Following the game, Heiar was impressed with his team's defensive effort.

 

"We played a really good defensive game, going up by as much as 24 points in the first half and then the reserves came in and gave our starters a rest," Heiar said.

 

The Indians were scheduled to be on the road Monday evening in Tennessee with game time at 7 p.m. against Motlow Community College. The Indians will return home on Thursday for a home game against Bevill Community College with a 7 p.m. tip off.
