Dalton State Romp RedHawks At Homecoming

Saturday, January 27, 2018 - by Erik Simpson
Dalton State had five players score in double-figures in a 92-66 Homecoming romp of Martin Methodist (Tn.) at Mashburn Arena on Saturday.

Tonight the Roadrunners came out with something to prove, playing the team who gave them their only conference loss, Martin Methodist. The Roadrunners started ferociously on defense, holding the Red Hawks to just 5 points in the first 3 minutes.

Dalton State would continue surges of eye-popping plays from Isaiah Box, one being a beautiful pocket pass to Carnilious Simmons on a pick and roll, to make the score 39-25, with four minutes to go.
The Roadrunners would finish the half with 6 steals and 15 points off turnovers to go into the break ahead 54-37.

The second half would be nothing but a mirror image of the first. The Roadrunners would keep their feet on the gas and pester the Red Hawks passing lanes. Carnilious Simmons would have his finger prints all over this half with blocks and a bundle of second chance points. With great team defense and tenacious play on the offensive end, Dalton State would earn this conference win with the score, 92-66.

Dalton State improves to (17-4 overall, 10-1 SSAC) with the win, while Martin Methodist (Tenn.) falls to (5-17 overall, 4-7 SSAC) with tonight's loss. Senior Carnilious Simmons would lead all Roadrunner scorers with 23 points and 10 rebounds.

The duo of Reed Dungan (16) and Aaron Burress (14) combined for 30 points and 8 rebounds. Isaiah Box and Mon'Darius Black were the last Dalton State scorers in double-figures with 12 points and six assist each. Black added eight rebounds as well.

JJ Jones led the Red Hawks with 13 points and Patrick Murphy and Jordan Olison followed him up with 9 points each.

The Roadrunners will play Voorhees College (SC.) on the road on Tuesday, January 30. Tip-Off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
