It took a few more games than the South Carolina Allstars anticipated, but they finally put one in the win column!
In the second home game of the season, Derrell Beason's team came away with a much needed victory, over Upstate rival, the SC Upstate Redhawks. The final score showed a score of 107-79, in a game that saw the Redhawks come within 10 points of the lead early in the third quarter.
The Allstars bench was needed to stop a run by the Redhawks that saw a 20+ point lead at the half, closed to 10 by the 7 minute mark in the 3rd quarter. When the bench came in at the media timeout, they immediately saw a boost of energy, and got the lead back by quarters end.
Tempers seemed to be right on the edge, throughout the rivalry game, as a player was ejected after receiving 2 technicals for the Redhawks. They also lost, leading scorer, Melvin Garrett Jr, to his 6th personal foul, with a few minutes left in the game. Although, the Allstars ended the game with no one on their roster in any sort of foul trouble. The deep bench the Allstars played with ended up being the key to wearing out their opponent.
"The ability for us to go to our bench the way we did, and see a gain in production in the second half, was critical for us this weekend. We were creating great opportunities through turnovers from our starters, but only had 2 baskets in 6 minutes. That isn't great, and those guys are better than that. But the second 5 came in with intensity, and gave us a strong boost. Everyone played well for our squad today." Said coach Beason after reviewing the game tape.
The bench will continue to prove the difference between how this team preforms the rest of this season. Coach Beason brought the teams leading scorer, Davon Thomas, off the bench as the critical 6th man, which didn't halt his production, but allowed for everyone to get into a better rhythm. The Allstars were lead by Thomas, Omar Sander, and Wiley Petty, who all had 18 points in the contest. Corey Lovett, in his first appearance of the season tallied 15 points and Ivan Vernon was able to notch double figures in the points column, for the third time in three games.
The Allstars will travel to Savannah, Georgia this upcoming weekend. They will try to break even with a .500 record, while the Storm of Savannah will be looking to start their season with a win. The Allstars will look to continue the past weekends success in the Storms season opener.
