First off, here's the highlights... if you're a Southern fan or something...
WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports
For the record, the Jags broke the NCAA record that Seton Hall had when they scored the first 34 points against Kean College on November 19th, 1998.
The largest margin for victory is Long Island University beating Medgar Evers 179-62 on November 26th, 1997. The Southern win is now the third widest all-time margin...
Tre Lynch seemed less than apologetic in his quote in the Baton Rouge Advocate to Charles Salzer:
“If we come out and do what we do then leads can get like that,” Lynch said. “We don’t try and look at the score. We just play our game and, God bless us, if the lead gets like that then so be it.”
“Defensively I felt like we played aggressive, we played hard and that’s a pretty good showing for us against a D-1 school,” CBC coach Eric Capaci told Salzer. “Offensively, we just did not show up. We missed our free throws, and missed a lot of easy lay ups.
“(Southern) is big and tall, but we still should have dropped some more buckets.”
Well, okay then... what, exactly, did you tell your son in the locker room since he was one of your bench players...???
Southern AD William J. Broussard was asked why they scheduled CBC. He talked about them playing four other D1 schools and that it's hard scheduling bigger schools when you're Southern.
"I assume it's a budget balancer for them as well," he said.
Oh, here's Salzer discussing what he saw with ESPN
Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com caught up with Southern head coach Roman Banks, who claimed he didn't know how out of control it got:
"You're worried about the psyche of the team even though we played well against some of those teams," Banks said. "You can lose your confidence. This game was all about us. I was surprised at how well we played defensively, and it led to a bunch of transition baskets."
