Balanced AC Attack Drops Coastal Bend CC

Spread the ball. Run the ball. Share the ball.

Angelina College’s Roadrunners put together a balanced offensive attack on Saturday, finishing the game with 20 team assists in an 84-66 win over Coastal Bend Community College at Shands Gymnasium.

The win makes it two straight in Region XIV play for the Roadrunners (6-8, 2-3), who knocked off Panola College this past Saturday.

Four Roadrunners topped double figures: Errol White led the way with 20 points and six rebounds; Quandre Bullock, who has hit 10 points or more in every game this season, notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, adding five assists to his totals. Caleb Johnson finished with 16 points, eight rebounds and four assists; and Zach Selvage contributed 11 points and five assists.

The ‘Runners didn’t slouch on defense either, forcing 19 Cougar turnovers and converting those into 22 points – many of which came on AC fast breaks. White, Bullock, Selvage and Johnson each swiped three steals in the game.

Lonzo Rand led the Cougars (4-14, 2-7) with 14 points. Jayden Williams added 13.

AC took control early, breaking open a tight game with a 16-4 run midway through the first half. Selvage and Najee Williams drilled threes during the surge, and White picked up six points in less than two minutes.

CBCC was never able to get within double digits the rest of the way.

In Tyler, the Lady Roadrunners dropped a 73-62 decision to the No. 7 Lady Apaches.

The ‘Runners next game takes place at 7 p.m. on Monday at Tyler Junior College. The contest is a reschedule from an earlier postponement.
