NICEVILLE, Fla. (November 15, 2019) – Tallahassee Community College fought off a game effort from Denmark (S.C.) Technical College and picked up a 67-56 win on day action at the NWF Classic. 

Tallahassee (4-1) never trailed en route to its fourth straight victory since dropping its season opener. 

Points were relatively hard to come by on Friday, with the exception of the third quarter, when Tallahassee outscored the Panthers, 24-21, and took a 57-48 lead to the fourth quarter. 

The Eagles' defense produced two single-digit quarters – they led 18-9 after the first quarter and held Denmark Tech to just eight points in the fourth quarter. 

Tallahassee held Denmark Tech to just 28.8 percent (21-of-73) shooting from the floor.
