South Carolina State has yet to play a home game and this will conclude the 5 game road trip for the Bulldogs. Coach Brown and his Bulldogs have started the early season off with a very disappointing 0-4 record.
Senior Travis Jones is the team's leading scorer so far this season with an 11.8 average, but was held to just 3 points in a 87 – 74 loss at Jacksonville this past Saturday.
The Bulldogs opened the season with a fight taking the South Carolina Gamecocks of the SEC to the wire, before losing 55 -52. Senior guard Travis Jones and junior guard Marcus McCants combined for 27 of the Bulldogs` 52 points in the loss.
South Carolina State got off to an early 8 point lead against Southern Florida but could not sustain the intensity and lost to the Bulls 82 – 69. Travis Jones again led the team in scoring with 18 points hitting on 5 of 9 from behind the arc. Senior Brian Mason added 12 points and Freshman Thomas Bookman came off the bench for 11.
The Georgia Bulldogs had a field day against South Carolina State pounding them 105 – 60. Georgia took full advantage of the horrible defense S.C.S. displayed shooting an incredible 63% from the field in the first half and 61% for the game.
The Dayton Flyers are coming off a huge win on Friday against the Louisville Cardinals. Brian Roberts was very impressive as he played all 40 minutes with most of them at the point and only committed 1 turnover for the game.
Charles Little also had a huge game showing everyone what his athleticism can do for him and the Flyers. Charles scored 15 points while shooting 5 – 10 from the field and 5 – 8 from the free throw line.
