November 17, 2007

By Chipola Staff

The Chipola Indians used a balanced scoring attack and timely defense to take down USC-Salkehatchie on Saturday afternoon 81-57.

Four players scored in double digits for the top ranked Indians during the second day of the Georgia Perimeter Thanksgiving Classic. Sophomore Clevin Hannah and freshman Casey Mitchell led the way with 12 points each.

“I thought we did a lot of good things today,” said Chipola coach Greg Heiar. “We did a better job of taking care of the basketball and we were more efficient on both ends of the floor today.”

The Indians, who committed 24 turnovers a night early, reduced that number to 17 as they improved to 6-0 on the season.

Freshman Gary Flowers had 10 points, all coming after the halftime intermission, to go along with his team high 7 rebounds.

“I think we’re beginning to understand the big picture,” said Heiar. “Now we have to keep getting better everyday.”

Sophomore Mario Little rounded out the double-digit scoring for Chipola. He, too, had 10 points.

Freshman Vernon Teel added 8 points and 5 assists in the win.

The Indians next play on Monday evening. They host St. Petersburg at 7:00 pm CST. The game can be seen live via Chipola College TV as a webcast at
