Gainesville, FL – Alsean Evans had another solid all around effort for the Santa Fe Saints on Friday evening, scoring 18 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists, and a steal in 25 minutes to lead SF past Clearwater Academy International 78-59.
The Saints (6-1) continued to score at an efficient rate, despite a cold shooting night from behind the three point line (27%). They made up for it on the free throw line (16-for-19, 84%) and shot an efficient 45% from the field.
The first and second half mirrored each other identically for the Saints. They scored 39 points, made 14-of-31 shots, three three pointers, and eight free throws in each half.
"We had a lot of different guys contribute tonight," said SF Coach Chris Mowry. "Alsean and Malik really contributed in a lot of different areas for us against zone defense, which we don't see all that often, but needed some exposure to for down the road. I thought all of our guys made some plays tonight."
It was a homecoming of sorts for CAI Head Coach Aaron Holmes who played a year at Santa Fe (2008-09) before transferring to Tulane University to finish his collegiate career. Holmes was an FCSAA All-State pick his one year at SF.
The Saints will take the weekend off before returning to the court on Tuesday, November 21 at Polk State College for a 7:00 p.m. tip.
