Samford Video Recap

31 Jan

Senior Antwaine Wiggins knocked down a career-high 25 points to lead College of Charleston to a 68-52 road victory at Samford on Jan. 30 at the Pete Hanna Center in Birmingham, Ala. It marked the Cougars’ first win in five games as they remained an undefeated 12-0 in the all-time series with the Bulldogs. Junior Matt Sundberg scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-10 from three-point land.

With the win, CofC Interim Head Coach Mark Byington claimed his first career coaching victory since taking over the reins of the program after CofC Head Coach Bobby Cremins took a medical leave of absence on Jan. 27. He is now 1-1 as the program’s acting head coach and is undoubtedly one of the top young coaching minds in the country.

The Cougars were fortunate to fly a charter plane to Alabama with the support of the Cougar Club and its members who traveled with the team on the trip. We had a lot of Maroon and White in the stands tonight including the Wiedeman’s, the Benton’s and Coach Byington’s wife, Christy. We thank all of our fans for continuing to support us and Congratulations to Twaine and Coach B!
