Cougars Basketball Hosts Alumni Game

(11/7/09) Clearwater, FL- The men's basketball team held their annual Alumni game on Saturday, November 7. The alumni team was made up of Mark McFawn, Ariel Betancourt, James Sanney, Jeremy Ham, Alex Pasquine, Kyle Gibson, Anthony Wilson, Larry Bache, Paul Finelli, Lance Cook, Michael Hudson, Sean Brady, and Mark Lazarre.

The Cougars controlled the tempo of the game with their unselfish, pass first style of play, as well as their great ability to run the fast break. The Cougars finished the game with 7 double digit scorers. Clearwater was led in scoring by George Youstra's 19 points. He was followed by Brian Copeland with 18, as well as 8 assists, Matt Wells, 16; Todd Wahlberg, 15; Terrance Fisher, 14; Brian Spears, 13; and Troy Hadlock with 11. Lonzo Saunders also added to the Cougars 124-86 victory over the Alumni with 9 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. The Alumni were led in scoring by Anthony Wilson, with 19 points, and Jeremy Ham with 18.

After the game Coach Champion said "I thought we ran the break well and played very unselfish basketball. With seven players in double figures it was evident that we moved the ball around and found the open man. I was pleased with the effort given and the fact that everyone got into the action. The alumni game always is a great game to have just before we go into the regular season, as it gives us a chance to get some of the first game jitters out of the way. I'd like to thank the alumni for coming back to campus and participating in the game." The Cougars will open up the regular season on Friday, November 13, at home against Piedmont Baptist Bible College.
