St. Augustine's

St. Aug. tops Shaw to reach CIAA quarters

Posted February 27, 2014

— Junior forward Tashaun Stockdale (Poplar, SC) scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds, both career highs, to lead four double-figure scorers as Saint Augustine’s University stymied Shaw University in the second half for a 74-59 men’s basketball second-round victory in the CIAA Tournament at Time Warner Cable Arena on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

The Falcons, the No. 6 seed in the Southern Division, advance to Thursday’s quarterfinals to play Livingstone College, the top seed in the Southern Division. Game time is 1 p.m.

Livingstone beat the Falcons twice during the regular season, but the Falcons pushed the Blue Bears to the limit in a 90-89 overtime loss at home on February 19. The Blue Bears have the CIAA Player of the Year in guard Mark Thomas. His backcourt mate Jody Hill is also an All-CIAA player.

“They have a great team,” St. Aug Head Coach Tony Sheals said. “They have the best guard combo in the league. Coach [James] Stinson is doing a great job. We have to beat them off the glass and guard them.
"Our work will be cut out but I don’t think we will be fatigue. We will be ready to play."

All-CIAA senior center Jonathan Crawley (Richmond, VA) and junior guard Xavier Saddler-Mee (Long Island, NY) each added 11 points and senior guard Joel Kindred (Raleigh, NC) had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Falcons, who defeated their crosstown rivals for the second time in three games this season.

The Falcons (13-15 overall) locked down on defense to pull away from a 27-27 halftime tie. They outscored the Bears 47-32 in the second half to win going away. Their defense limited the Bears to 34 percent shooting while the Falcons were sizzling from the floor. They shot 57 percent on 17-of-30 shooting.

The Falcons also dominated the boards in the second half. They outrebounded the Bears 27-14 which led to 14 second chance points. Stockdale helped the Falcons outscore the Bears 26-14 in the paint in the second half with 10 points and six rebounds. Overall, the Falcons held a 34-20 scoring advantage in the lane.

“I thought we had a favorable matchup,” said St. Aug Head Coach Tony Sheals, who is 2-0 as a coach in the CIAA Tournament after the Falcons won their second game in two nights. “We felt comfortable that we could defend them. The key was if we could find a way to score against their zone. The 14-point differential in the paint was the difference.”

Junior guard Raheem Jolliffe (Fayetteville, NC) added eight points including two big threes in the second half. Junior guard Amere May (South Haven, MI) finished with seven points, eight rebounds and six assists. May scored 37 points one night ago in the first-round win over Chowan University.

May opened the second half with a jumper and Stockdale scored on a twisting drive for a 31-27 lead in the opening minutes of the second half. Mee scored on a steal and Stockdale threw down a two-handed power slam on his steal as the Falcons scored the first eight points for a 35-27 lead.

The Falcons capped a 25-9 run to open the second half on a three-pointer by May for a 52-36 lead, the biggest of the night. The Bears (10-17 overall) pulled within 10 on an Andre Paulk three-pointer with 2:25 left but got no closer.

Kindred slammed home a two-handed alley-oop dunk on a pass from May for a 71-55 lead with 1:40 left. Crawley put an exclamation point on the victory with a slam dunk with 18 seconds for the final margin.

Paulk scored 20 points to lead the Bears, the No. 5 Southern Division seed. Joe Reid added 11 points and Larry Richardson scored 10 points.

“They are a well-coached team,” Shaw Head Coach Cleo Hill Jr. said about the Falcons. “Coach Sheals is a very good coach. They will do well the rest of the tournament.”
