Kylen Milton followed Morris with 10 points and five rebounds.

 

With the second half tipping off, the Golden Lions came out with a sense of urgency, adding lots of energy to their play. Surrounded by multiple white jerseys, Morris drove to the basket on a fastbreak and went up with all his strength to draw a foul and count the bucket to begin the second half.

Southern read that the Golden Lions were a threat in the second half as they put their comeback mission into play, forcing Southern to put a tall lineup in the game.

 

After a J’Quan Ewing dunk, Gabriel Vargas pushed the ball up the floor quickly to drop a pass off to Omar Parchman for a nasty jam over a Southern defender to answer back.

Southern would answer on the other end with a three-point shot, but the Golden Lions wasted no time getting the ball up court to Travonta Doolittle, who would go up against a Jaguar defender to finish a highly contested layup for two consecutive call-and-response scoring plays.
