Ingle Gets 300th Win As Dalton State Defeats Brewton-Parker

Friday, December 1, 2017

#6-ranked Dalton State won their SSAC opener against Brewton Parker (Ga.) by a score of 95-62 at Mashburn Arena on Thursday night. The win marks Coach Tony Ingle's 300th at four-year programs.



To begin the contest, both teams came out playing hard defense with the game being scoreless one-minute in.

The Barons would go 1-2 from the free-throw line to take the early lead. The game would go back and forth until a 9-2 Roadrunner run sparked by a thunderous dunk from Raheem England to put Dalton State up 23-14 five minutes into the half.


The Roadrunners would continue to expand their lead by playing good team ball. Reed Dungan would go 3-5 behind the three-point line as Dalton State took control of the game with a 32-22 lead. The Birds would keep their foot on the gas pedal, finishing the half with a 40-26 lead.



Dalton State would continue their hot streak on offense and play lockdown defense, expanding their lead to 15 at 55-40 six minutes into the second half.


With the game getting out of hand early in the half, Coach Ingle would sub his second string in early for them to get some experience. With the second rotation things did not calm down in Mashburn Arena, it only became louder and louder! The second rotation would put the game out of reach and get the W, with the final score of 95-62.



#6 Dalton State improves to (6-2 overall, 1-0 SSAC), while Brewton Parker drops (1-8 overall, 0-1 SSAC) with the loss. Senior Reed Dungan led all scorers with 21 points and four rebounds. Dungan is shooting at a 48% clip from the field on the season. Sean Chislom had 20 points and six rebounds, while Isaiah Box and Raheem England combined for 24 points.


Myles White led the Barons with 17 points, and Dimychael Ross followed up with 16 points.



The #6- ranked Roadrunners will play Middle Georgia State at Mashburn Arena on Saturday December 2. Tip-Off scheduled for 2:00 p.m.


Randy Smith: How The Coaching Carousel Turns

Hiring college football coaches is not an exact science. (The recent Tennessee hiring fiasco is a perfect example) Of the 14 head coaches in the SEC this season, only three have been at their current schools for five years or more. Those three are, Nick Saban at Alabama for ten years, Gus Malzahn at Auburn for five years and Mark Stoops at Kentucky for five. While it appears there ... (click for more)

Bill Lee Is Great For Tennessee

I had the opportunity to meet Bill and Maria Lee at the grand opening of his Chattanooga Campaign HQ. He delivered, what was by most accounts, a showstopper speech at the Statesman’s dinner in Nashville the night before. He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)

A Successful East Ridge Bake Sale

Saturday's event at the Camp Jordan Pavilion was nothing more than extraordinary, if not history making.  Alongside the threatening eminent domain letters the citizens of East Ridge received, a Union was formed amongst the East Ridge Police Department.  Coming to City Council the night of April 26, I had only one thing I was focused on: eminent domain.  ...
