ORANGBURG, S.C. -- Donte Wright had a career-high 31 points as South Carolina State thrashed Division III Brevard 93-65 on Thursday night.
Wright, who had been averaging 12.9 points a game, nailed 7 of 13 from distance to finish 11 of 19 from the field. Damani Applewhite was 7 of 8 from the floor for 14 points and Ozante Fields hit 6 of 8 for 12 points as the Bulldogs (2-8) shot 61 percent (36 of 59) from the floor. They also drilled 11 of 23 from long range.
South Carolina State limited Brevard to 22-of-54 (41 percent) shooting.
The Bulldogs rolled to a 40-27 advantage at the break and won the second half 53-38 as Brevard never challenged.
Guard Miles Wilson has been dismissed from the Miami Hurricanes' men's basketball program for failing to meet team expectations.
Alabama's Avery Johnson sits down with Paul Finebaum to reflect on being the basketball coach at a "football school."
Arizona recently landed five-star guard Nico Mannion. How is the rest of the 2019 class shaping up?
