Dalton State Falls To Jacksonville State 85-61

Saturday, November 23, 2013 - by Bob Beavers

Division I Jacksonville State University took advantage of early Dalton State foul troubles Friday afternoon to come from behind and win an Exhibition Game, 85-61.

Dalton started strong and jumped out to a nine point lead, 19-10, with 11:13 left in the first half.  But it was apparent early on that the Roadrunners were drawing far too many fouls.

With those foul worries slowing down the visitors, the Gamecocks came back to lead by four at the half, 38-34.

Raheem Mosley fouled out early in the second half with no points and only five rebounds. He only played 14 minutes in the game.  By then, Ricky Sears, Preston Earle, and Demetrice Jacobs each had fouls. Sears was limited to 20 minutes.

The Gamecocks jumped out to a 30 point second half lead. During the afternoon, the Roadrunners were out rebounded 42-25. JSU hit 26 of 33 from the foul line, 78.8%. DS hit 18-23, 78.3%.

Jacobs scored 14 Dalton points, Earle 13, Sears 11, Sean Tate 9, and Anthony Hilliard 6.

Darion Rackley led JSU with 27 points and six rebounds, Undra Mitchem 17 points and five rebounds, Grant White scored 11.

“Playing against Division I caliber players in a D-1 atmosphere really taught our players something we could not learn any other way,” said Dalton State coach Tony Ingle.

“I’m glad this was an exhibition game for us and did not count against our won-loss record,” said Ingle. “We must learn from this game and continue improving as a team. We are glad every9ne on the team got to play.”  

Dalton State (8-1) returns home to face Auburn Montgomery on Tuesday night at the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center. Tip-off will be at 7:00 p.m.
