SC All Stars score exhibition win over Redhawks - Feb 23, 2016

The South Carolina All-Stars played their second exhibition game preparing for the upcoming season as a part of the ECBL. Head Coach Derrall Beason isn't the only change the All Stars have made: Besides moving to Spartanburg from Greenville, the team has only four returning players.

On February 21 the All Stars faced in-state rival SC Upstate Redhawks in exhibition play. The All Stars jumped out to a quick lead and never saw the SC Upstate Redhawks, from Greenville, threaten. Leading at the half, 51-38, the Redhawks weren't able to recover from that deficit in the second half.

The All Stars seemed to take full advantage from getting most of their players together for the first time. Having five players that live away from the Greenville area, building the team chemistry will prove to be the test for this talented squad of athletes. The All Stars offense was promising and with a balanced attack, featuring all 10 players score, six score in double figures. In the end South Carolina All Stars won by the score of 118-98.

Guiding the way was Darryl Evans (6'0''-G-87, college: Furman), who recorded a triple-double (10 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists), his first time out with the All Stars. Another newcomer, Omar Sanders (6'7''-F-90, college: S.Carolina St.) led the team in scoring with 31 points, on 16 field goal attempts. Marcus Watts (6'7''-F-86, college: Chattanooga), Ivan Vernon (6'0''-PG), Devon Thomas (6'0''-PG-94), and Wiley Petty (6'7''-C) all scored in double figures as well.

The All Stars shot 45% from the field, while managing to shoot 8-for-22 from behind the arc. They managed to shoot 61% on 39 attempts at the charity stripe, a stat Coach Beason, hopes to see rise with players conditioning getting better over upcoming practices and the opening games of the season.

'I was pleased with the way the team played. It was very encouraging to see this group of guys play the way they did, having never played together before,' said Coach Beason, reflecting on the game.

Beason also pointed out that the team dished out 33 assists on 43 made baskets. That is a great accomplishment for any team, much less a team that had yet to have any sort of practice. Coach also referenced a chemistry that he saw, that most teams take a long time to develop. Referring back to some veteran leadership on the court, this seemed, to bring the young guys up to another level in their play.

The RedHawks were lead by former SC All Star James Lowe (5'10''-PG, college: S.Wesleyan), who tallied 28 points. Another former South Carolina All Star, Melvin Garrett (6'6''-F-82, college: Salem Intern., agency: Aspire Sports) recorded a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds.
