NEW ORLEANS, LA - It wasn't pretty, but it was a victory as SUNO defeated the Edward Waters Tigers 52-38 in The Castle.  The Knights bounced back from their loss to Xavier on Monday to improve to 8-3 on the season and 3-2 in the GCAC.

"You take wins any way you can get them", said Head Coach Dale Valdery.  "But we didn't give the kind of performance that I was expecting after the loss the other night.  I know that they know that they can play better, and that they have to play better the rest of the way."

 

SUNO trailed 27-24 at the half even though they shot just 36 percent from the floor.  Kevin Dukes kept the Knights in the game with 8 first half points.  After the break, SUNO turned up the defensive intensity forcing Edward Waters into 18 turnovers that led to easy opportunities, especially for Clyde Moore as he was able to score on layups or make trips to the foul line.  Moore finished with 16 points to lead all scorers.

The Tigers were only able to score 4 baskets on 17 percent shooting in the half and finished at 35 percent for the game.  "We didn't have it going offensively, shots weren't falling", said Moore, "so we tightened it up defensively and found a way to win.  Some games are just going to be like this, but we've been here before and each guy trusts the next one to make a stop or get a basket when we really need one.  Monday we get to play again, and we're going to come out and play hard."

The Knights take on Talladega at 4pm Monday afternoon in The Castle.
