Recap: Savannah State vs. SC State

Norfolk, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Alante Fenner scored 15 points and pulled down eight rebounds as the Savannah State Tigers topped the SC State Bulldogs, 61-47, during the opening round of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament at Scope Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the fifth-seeded Tigers (13-16) were Terel Hall and Jeremiah Hill with 14 and 10 points, respectively, while Jyles Smith pitched in with eight points and 13 rebounds before fouling out.

The 12th-seeded Bulldogs (9-21) were paced by Jalen White with a game-high 19 points, thanks in large part to a 10-of-12 shooting performance at the free- throw line. Unfortunately, White was the only player to score in double figures for SC State in the setback.

The Bulldogs converted a total of just seven field goals in the first half, on 25 attempts, yet trailed by just four points at the break, 28-24. The Tigers were a mere 35.7 percent accurate from the floor through the first 20 minutes as well.

The second half saw SC State shoot only 25.0 percent from the field yet again, just 1-of-7 beyond the arc and 8-of-15 at the free-throw line, more than enough to allow Savannah State to cruise to the double-digit victory.

The Tigers will now take on the Norfolk State Spartans who defeated MD-Eastern Shore earlier tonight in the other opening-round battle by a score of 78-74.
