Myerscough College vs Derby College

Amari Williams scored 22 points to lead Myerscough to a 91-79 win over Derby on Wednesday, scoring eight-straight points early in the third quarter to break the game open.

“It’s great knowing how many threats we have on the floor,” said Williams. “For me to come out at the top scorer gives me a lot of confidence. My teammates found me when I was open and I was able to attack the rim and get offensive boards.”

Lewis McGlasson and Callan Low hit four 3-pointers each on their way 18 points a piece. Myerscough (11-2), led by eight at halftime before surging to a 65-50 advantage off a Corey Samuels’ 3-pointer with 6:06 left in the third quarter. Demi Adenuga would drill a three of his own to push the gap out to 19. Blake Bowman responded for Derby by converting a 3-point play to bring his side within 9 at the 3:02 mark of the fourth, but would get no closer. A quick 4-0 burst out of a timeout extended Myerscough’s lead back to double-digits.

“It was a good old fashioned shoot-out,” said Myerscough coach Neal Hopkins. “Sometimes you just have to sit there any enjoy it.”

Tyler Mutemasango led Derby (6-5) with 17 points, with Bowman and Luke Pope each adding 15 in the loss. The Trailblazers connected on 12 3-pointers, including six in the first half.
