Alabama-Huntsville Wins 2012 GSC Title - Mar 5, 2012
The University of Alabama in Huntsville made school history today by winning its first-ever Gulf South Conference Men's Basketball Tournament Title at The Arena on the campus of Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, FL. UAH (26-3) hoisted its first-ever trophy in thrilling fashion, pulling away from No. 2 seed Christian Brothers (23-6) in the Sunday's Championships, 58-43. CBU jumped out to a five-point lead five minutes into the contest, but the Chargers rallied to a seven-point edge thanks to a 12-0 run. The Buccaneers knotted the score at 14-14 at 7:40, but Alabama-Huntsville pulled away en route to a 28-19 halftime advantage. Christian Brothers whittled the deficit to five points less than two minutes into the second frame, but UAH dominated the rest of the way, leading by as many as 17 points. UAH point guard Josh Magette poured in a game-high 23 points and a team-high seven rebounds in 39 minutes, while forward Srdjan Boskovic added 13 points. CBU forward Zack Warner netted a team-best 17 points, while guard Scott Dennis provided 10 points. Magette was named the Tournament's Most Outstanding Player. Rounding out the All-Tournament Team was UAH guard Jaime Smith, CBU's Warner and Dennis, West Florida forward Jamar Moore and West Georgia forward Da'Ron Sims. Alabama-Huntsville also won the league's automatic NCAA Tournament berth and the Chargers should earn the right to host next week's South Regional Tournament. Christian Brothers should earn an at-large NCAA bid, while West Georgia and West Florida also hold out hopes.
