Dalton State College's Ingle and Waugh reflect on past against Florida Gulf Coast


Knowing them first

There are other connections.

Brett Comer, the sophomore point guard who recorded a personal-best 14 assists and lofted up alley-oop after alley-oop in the team’s third-round win against San Diego State? Waugh said he was verbally committed to Stetson just before Waugh stepped down as the program’s coach.

“He was coming to Stetson before I left,” he said. “A verbal is a verbal. It’s not like he had signed.”

Sherwood Brown, the senior guard who scored 17 points against San Diego State after recording a team-high 24 in the second-round win against Georgetown?

“Sherwoon Brown played on Olympia High School in Orlando with five Division I players,” Waugh said. “He was considered out of the five the least likely Division I prospect. He came to our (team) camp at least two years. ... We wanted him to walk on because we were out of scholarships, but Florida Gulf Coast is cheaper than Stetson.

“When we played against (Brown), he was never really more than a seventh or eighth man,” Waugh said.

Brown, Eddie Murray and Chase Fieler are the three players who were on the 2010-2011 FGCU team and faced Waugh and Ingle.

In a 69-68 Kennesaw State win that year, Brown played 12 minutes and tallied seven points. Murray, now a senior, played three minutes and missed his only shot. Fieler, currently a junior, started as a freshman in that game, playing 36 minutes but only scoring three points.

Ladaris Green, who played for Kennesaw State, reunited with Ingle when he committed to Dalton State, scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in that game. He scored the same amount and tallied 13 re-bounds the other time they played that season, an 81-70 Kennesaw State win.

“Sherwood Brown was special,” Ingle said. “Four of their top seven players, I coached against. I knew that they were good, but at the same time we had young guys, too.”
