Giants defeat Warriors in convincing fashion with balanced scoring attack.
A balanced scoring attack and minimal fouls elevate the Jacksonville Giants over the Southwest Warriors for their first win of the 2015-2016 season. The Giants outscored the Warriors by more than double digits winning in a convincing fashion with a final score of 113-52, scoring 41 in the second quarter alone. The Giants had seven (7) players scoring in double digits lead by Elijah Smith scoring a team high 19 points hitting three from beyond the 3-point line.
Giants head coach Kevin Waters was pleased with the way the Giants as a whole contributed in the scoring, looking especially good from behind the arc. The Giants strong play on the defensive side of the ball was elevated by keeping their fouls to a minimum and limiting the Warriors second chance shots by attacking the boards on both the offensive and defensive rebounding.
The Giants will continue their Georgia road trip when they take on the Atlanta Wildcats on Sunday, November 29th at 7:00 p.m. before returning home to Jacksonville where they will prepare for their home opener on Saturday, December 5th at 7:00 p.m. hosting their division rival Miami Midnites in a 2015 Final Four rematch. The Giants will be honoring city employees for the “City of Jacksonville” night game. The pre-game “Block Party” begins at 5:00 p.m. in front of the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena with bounce houses, face painting, animals from the Jacksonville Zoo, music, and much much more.
