Miles Sees Career-High 30 Points in 91-49 Victory Over LaGrange

LIVINGSTON, Ala. – Kortrijk Miles set a career-high with 30 points and grabbed a game-best seven rebounds, Shardarrion Allen added 18 points, and the Tigers rolled past LaGrange College 91-49 on Tuesday night.

The Tigers (4-1) won their third consecutive game on their third straight outing at home in Pruitt Hall Gymnasium. West Alabama dominated from the beginning, with Robert Davis collecting the first two points of the game after being fouled seconds after tip-off.

Those first two points led to a huge run for UWA, with the Tigers leading the Panthers 47-18 in the half. Miles, West Alabama’s lead scorer, had 17 points in that first period, while Allen and Calvin Finch had seven and six points, respectively.

Returning from the halftime break, the Panthers were able to strike first with a layup 14 seconds in, and less than a minute later, LaGrange grabbed two more points to cut UWA’s lead to 47-22.

It would be full two minutes into the half before West Alabama added points to the score. Miles made back-to-back layups to increase the Tiger lead to 51-22 with 17:55 left to play.

Several players came off the UWA bench to put up numbers in the final minutes. Boubacar Kamissoko sank a three-point jumper at the 11-minute mark for a score of 65-33, and Justin Allison added three on a layup and point after a foul with 7:42 left to play for a score of 77-39.

Brice Martin was responsible for six-point in the final five minutes, and West Alabama closed the game 91-49.

As a team, the Tigers made 38 of 67 from the field (56.7%), including 3 of 16 (18.8%) in three-point range. At the line, West Alabama went 12 for 16 (75.0) to add to the offense.

Defensively, UWA held LaGrange to 21 of 50 (42.0%) from the field and 2 of 12 (16.7) from beyond the arc. The Panthers did not have many free throw opportunities, making five of just eight (62.5%) attempts.

The UWA men’s basketball team will be back in action on Saturday, Nov. 27, when it host Brewton-Parker College. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. inside Pruitt Hall Gymnasium.
