Saints stout at home


“We’ve played 16 of 22 games on the road. I don’t think that probably anybody in the country has done that. We just finished an eight-game road trip. We played some pretty tough competition, and Stout is a really good team. They led the No. 1 team in the country, UW-Stevens Point, in (NCAA) Division III. — they were beating them to the last 30 seconds just a couple of weeks ago.”

Harris, a 6-foot-5 junior forward from Chicago, and Overton, a 6-0 sophomore guard from East Moline, Ill., came up big for the Saints in the rematch.

With the teams tied 45-45, Harris was left open on the left side and stuck in a 3-point basket with 9 minutes, 36 seconds left in regulation. After Alex Oman (Stout’s scoring leader with 23 points) made 1 of 2 free-throw attempts, DeAndre Lowery Jr. once again found Harris open in front of the Ashford bench, and Harris buried another trey to make it 51-46.

“Coach gives me the green light, so when I get open I shoot it,” said Harris, who scored 11 of his 18 points in the second half. “My teammates found me open, so I took the shot and hit it. When I see that first shot go down, it definitely gives me a lot more confidence to shoot it, and from the same area, it definitely gives me more confidence.”

Drake appreciated the contribution from Harris, who earlier in the half was on the receiving end of an alley-oop pass from Overton for a dunk.

“Tevin is just scratching the surface,” Drake said. “You see how athletic he is. He can finish way above the rim. He can do some things around the basket.

“The best thing about Tevin is he can step out and shoot it, too. A lot of guys can play around the basket but they can’t step out and shoot. They were hard showing on ball screens so we picked-and-popped them a little on the side ball screens, and Tevin had his hands and feet ready and hit some big shots for us.”
