Ashton Moore scored 21 points and Matt Van Scyoc added 19 as The Citadel won its second straight basketball game, 83-53, over North Greenville on Saturday night at McAlister Field House.
The Bulldogs made 12 of 26 from 3-point range to improve their record to 2-2, with visits to Tennessee and Wake Forest on tap next week. That’s their most treys in a game since 2010.
Moore hit 5 of 7 shots from long distance and Van Scyoc was 3 of 6 on 3-pointers for The Citadel, which shot 44.6 percent overall and had 23 assists on 29 baskets.
Moore made 7 of 11 shots overall and added nine assists and five rebounds to his stat line. Quinton Marshall scored 10 points off the bench.
“We only had 10 turnovers, which is outstanding,” coach Chuck Driesell said. “I’ll take that any night.”
The Bulldogs got 25 points from the bench, including eight from Dylen Setzekorn and seven from Raemond Robinson, who made both of his 3-point shots.
“We’ve got nine players right now, so we need everyone to step up and get the production we got tonight,” said Driesell, who is without forward C.J. Bray (shoulder) and freshman guard Warren Sledge (foot).
Freshman forward Brian White left Saturday’s game with a leg injury, but Driesell said he would “be fine.”
North Greenville, a Division II school playing its third road game in three days, dropped to 2-3. Chris Dean led the Crusaders with 16 points.
