CHARLESTON, S.C. – Another near triple-double and a season-high six players in double figures led the Charleston Southern men’s basketball team to a 108-52 home win over Piedmont International Saturday night from Buccaneer Field House.
Ty Jones finished the night with 12 points, nine rebounds and a career-high nine assists finishing just short of a double-double and triple-double, but the Bucs (6-6) were able to cruise from the opening tip as Piedmont International (2-8) couldn’t find the scoreboard until the 16:29 mark when CSU had a 9-0 advantage.
CSU shot .594 from the floor posting 50-plus points in both halves while holding the Bruins to just 19 first-half points. The Bucs had a lead as large as 58 in the second half as they also found their rhythm from downtown connecting on 15 treys – a season high. Five of those treys came from the hot hand of Louis, who connected on 5-of-6 and hit six of his seven total shots.
