TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (November 29, 2018) – Tallahassee Community College's men's basketball team improved to 11-0 on the season with a convincing 97-56 win over Middle Georgia Prep Academy on Thursday evening at the Bill Hebrock Eagledome.
Middle Georgia Prep played the Eagles close for a half, trailing 42-36 through the first 20 minutes. The second half, however, was all Tallahassee.
The Eagles opened the half on a 10-3 run to extend their lead to 13 (52-39) and outscored Middle Georgia Prep 37-7 over the first 11 minutes to blow the game wide open.
Richard Washington, who scored a school-record 45 points in Wednesday's win over Andrew (Ga.) College, had the hot hand once again for Tallahassee. He scored a game-high 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field and just missed another double-double, finishing with nine rebounds.
Four other players joined him in double-figures, led by Deven Palmer with 18.
Tallahassee will take the next week off for final exams before resuming play on Thursday, December 6 with a home game against Pasco-Hernando State College. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
