Miami got a huge game from Sheldon McClellan to move to 5-0 on the season and claim the Charleston Classic Title 77-58 over the Charlotte 49ers. McClellan narrowly missed a double double scoring 19 points grabbing 8 rebounds and adding 3 assists and 1 steal. Angel Rodriguez also dominated in the game scoring 13 points with 2 rebounds 5 assists and 5 steals. Rodriguez was named the tournament’s most valuable player after the game.
Charlotte could not recover after losing their leading scorer Braxton Ogbueze to a knee injury in the middle of the first half. Ogbueze, who was named to the all-tournament team after the game, was in obvious pain as he was carried off the court by his teammate.
Mike Thorne Jr. was a bright spot for the 49ers scoring 19 points and adding 6 rebounds. Pierria Henry also scored 11 points and added 5 rebounds in the losing effort.
Both teams came out to play in the first half as they traded baskets to start out the game. The lead changed hands 6 times before Miami was able to take control. The Hurricanes rode a 10-3 run into a seven-point halftime lead.
Sheldon McClellan was a key contributor for Miami scoring 8 points and grabbing 5 rebounds. Tonye Jekiri added 7 points and 4 rebounds for the Hurricanes as well.
Ivan Benkovic played strong for the 49ers in the first half hitting all of his shots for 9 points.
But Charlotte seemed to be overmatched in the second half as the Hurricanes came out to go on a 19-7 run to increase their lead to 19 points. Miami did not let up as they continued to sustain their lead scoring at will on the Charlotte defense. Angel Rodriguez was even able to pass the ball off the backboard to a trailing Tonye Jekiri for a two-handed slam.
Miami and Charlotte will continue their rivalry on Tuesday as Charlotte will play host to the Hurricanes at 9:00 pm.

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Penn St. edged out Southern California in a nailbiter this afternoon 63-61. D.J. Newbill dominated the game for Penn St. putting in 22 points while grabbing 4 rebounds and dishing out 4 assists. Newbill has been key to their success this year as he leads the Nittany Lions in PPG with 24.0, in APG with 2.8, and is 3rd in rebounding with 6.0.
The Trojans fall to 2-3 with the loss to Penn St. USC was only able to win one game in the tournament escaping Drexel 72-70 in another close game. Their other loss of the weekend was in blowout fashion to Akron 66-46.
Penn St. was able to key on the Trojans’ best player Jordan McLaughlin. McLaughlin only managed to score 12 points in the game, while also adding 6 rebounds and 4 assists. The other top performance for USC came from Shrahinja Gavrilovic who had a double double scoring 13 points adding 10 rebounds and an assist.
Penn St. set the tone early scoring often and leading at the first media timeout 15-2. USC answered however and were able to bring the score to 16-18 with 9:08 left in the half. From that point on the game was tight until the end of the half.
Shep Garner had 12 points to lead the Nittany Lions at the half while Darion Clark had a very efficient half scoring 6 point and grabbing 6 rebounds for the Trojans.
D.J. Newbill woke up in the second half scoring 16 of his 22 points in the last half. The game remained within three points until 10:30 left to play when a pair of Gavrilovic free throws made it 47-41 Trojans. The Nittany Lions would not stay down as they crept closer and closer to the lead until they were able to regain it at 53-53 with 4:39 to play. Penn St. would keep control of the game from that point on and go on to win 63- 61.
Southern California does not get a long break as they will travel back home to face off against Cal St Fullerton on Tuesday at 11:00 pm. The road does not get any easier for the Nittany Lions either as they will play host to the Akron Zips, who took 3rd place at this tournament, on Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
CHARLESTON, S.C — Akron Zips Head Coach Keith Dambrot and players Kwan Cheatham and Deji Ibitayo address the media after the Zips 68-63 victory over South Carolina, to place 3rd in the Charleston Classic tournament.

CHARLESTON, S.C — Noah Robotham’s 16 points lead the Zips to a 68-63 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks as the Zips take third place at the Charleston Classic.
For the first time in program history the Zips were able to beat two power five conference teams in the same year. Along with beating the USC Trojans from the Pac Ten on Thursday, they upset SEC power South Carolina Sunday night.
The Zips who took a 30-25 lead into the half were getting beat up inside allowing 16 points in the paint and allowing the Gamecocks to have 15 offensive rebounds.
Akron was able to make the adjustment and keep the Gamecocks in check the second half as South Carolina only grabbed 6 offensive rebounds.
Zips freshmen point guard Noah Robotham had only four points in the first half, but was able to lead them to victory in the second half putting up 12 points.
Robotham didn’t have a great night shooting the ball as he was only 4-11 from the floor, but it was his toughness to drive inside and get to the line shooting 6-8 free throws. The 6’1 point guard had no three pointers in the first half, but hit two of them in the second half on four attempts.
“They’re a good team, they win 22,23,24,25 games a season… they understand what it takes to do that,” said South Carolina head coach Frank Martin.
Beating two power five teams for the first time in the programs history didn’t surprise Zips coach Keith Dambrot.
“We’ve won a lot of games, so we know we can compete with these teams,” Dambrot said.
The Zips will play again Tuesday at 7:30pm as they will be on the road to play another power five team in Penn State, who is from the Big Ten.
