Roadrunners still have legs to run past Bryan

Playing the third game in as many days, Dalton State College’s men’s basketball team proved fatigue a non-issue.

The Roadrunners won 68-60 in Dayton, Tenn., against Bryan College to improve to 5-1 this season and win two of three games on the end-of-week stretch.

Dalton State led 38-30 at halftime and launched ahead 52-36 with a 14-6 run to begin the second half.

The Roadrunners stretched their lead to 60-44 but scored their final field goal with 4:10 remaining.

Galen Smith led Dalton State with 15 points off the bench and Demetrice Jacobs added 14 points and seven rebounds. Preston Earle chipped in 11 points and Sean Tate went 4 of 5 from the free-throw line, where the Roadrunners finished the game shooting 73.9 percent (17 of 23). Bryan College is winless through four games this season.

This was the fourth game in five days for Dalton State, which is off three days before returning home Wednesday against Carver College of Atlanta. The game begins at 7 p.m.

“We were not as sharp with our execution, but playing four games in five days in three different states was like playing an NBA schedule,” Dalton State coach Tony Ingle said in a news release from the college.

Brandon Cole scored 24 points and grabbed 17 rebounds for Bryan College. Bryan College outrebounded Dalton State 43-30. Nathan Terry led the Roadrunners with 11 rebounds.

“He really played well today and just might have secured a starting position,” Ingle said of Terry.
