In a steady and methodical attack, Itawamba Community College used an outstanding shooting night to down the Greyhounds 83-52 Thursday in Fulton, Mississippi.
With rebounds, turnovers and free throw attempts being relatively similar, it was simply shooting percentages that tells the real story of the game. The home team used a patient attack to get the shots they wanted and then buried them, hitting for an incredible 66.7% from the field and 63.6% from the three-point line. And on the other end, the Greyhounds struggled to find the mark in both halves, settling for 35.1% from the field and an abyssmal 12.5% (2-of-16) from the arc.
Dee Montgomery was the highlight for ASU Mid-South with 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting, and Trevor Banks finished with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, but no other Greyhound totaled more than five points or shot over 50% from the field. Greyhound leading-scorer, Terrandus Smith, was held to just four points after coming off a career-high 35-point, 11-rebound performance Tuesday at Northeast Mississippi.
After four games in nine days, the Greyhounds get eight days off before traveling to Harrison, Arkansas, for a key matchup with Region 2 rival North Arkansas on Saturday, January 21. The women will begin the action at 2:00pm followed by the men at 4:00pm.
