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.
