Roadrunners basketball earns 25th win

Dalton State College’s men’s basketball team outscored College of Coastal Georgia by 20 points in the second half Saturday and won 94-77 in Brunswick, improving to 25-4 with just one game left on the schedule.

Coastal Georgia (11-17) led 38-25 with 7:01 remaining in the second quarter. But from there, Dalton State went on an 18-8 run and headed into halftime down 46-43. The Roadrunners then blew away their foes in the second half, leading by as many as 22 toward the game’s end.

“We got behind early primarily because of our lack of concentration on our main defense,” Roadrunners coach Tony Ingle said. “We probably won the game because of the way we held our composure when we got down by 13 and managed to pull to within three at the break.”

Ladaris Green stood out for Dalton State with a double-double night, scoring 26 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. He also went 13-for-14 at the foul line. Ricky Sears added 21 points and seven rebounds, while Anthony Hilliard and Tyrel Edwards each added 11 points.

The Roadrunners close their season at 7 p.m. Tuesday as Chattanooga’s Tennessee Temple University visits the trade center for Dalton State’s senior night.
