Hiwassee College Defeats Victory University
Congratulations to the Hiwassee Tigers basketball team on their defeat of Victory University!
Their name may be Victory University, but it was the Hiwassee Tigers men’s basketball team that were victorious on Friday evening in Memphis, Tennessee. The Tigers came away with a 79 to 77 win over the NCCAA I’s ninth ranked team in the country.
Hiwassee College Men’s Basketball coach, Rodney Nelson, stated, “This was a great win for our program. It was the most complete 40 minutes we’ve played this year. We overcame some size differences and played really well!”
There were four Tigers who scored in double-digits. Justin Browner lead the team with 19, Lazerick Boyd scored 14, Cody Carson had 12, and Andrew Hansen shot 11. ”Hansen came up big late and hit some big threes when we were down,” said Coach Nelson. He went on to say, “Justin tied the game and then hit a free throw to put us up by one. Howie Meadows hit another free throw and our defense held to win the game.”
