LAKE WORTH, Fla. (December 10, 2018) – NJCAA No. 3/Region 8 No. 2 Tallahassee Community College outscored Palm Beach State College, 51-23, in the second half to pull away from the Panthers and claim a 101-61 win on Monday evening.
With the win, Tallahassee improved to 13-0 and extended the following school records – an 18-game winning streak that dates back to last season, the sixth consecutive 100-point game and tenth 100-point game of the season.
Tallahassee jumped out to a 27-16 lead after one quarter but the host Panthers essentially played the Eagles even in the second. Tallahassee outscored Palm Beach State 23-22 and led 50-38 at the intermission.
A 28-point third quarter gave the Eagles some much-needed breathing room en route to a 78-55 lead, and they put the game away, outscoring the Panthers, 23-6, in the fourth – the 12th time this season they've allowed single digits in a quarter.
Tallahassee will return to action on Tuesday when it plays at Broward College. Tip-off is at 5:30 p.m.
