Whew, what a game in Asheville! The Tigers trailed most of the second half and by 9 late but went on a 14-0 run! Hall was sensational on both ends with 27 points. For the third straight game, he had 2 fouls in the first half and had to go to the bench early in the 2nd half after picking up his 3rd foul, but he played tremendous defense the rest of the game without fouling, blocking a couple shots and taking a couple charges. Hunter scored 16, including the 2 game-winning free throws with 3 seconds left. The Tigers were just 1-10 from the arc in the first half, with Hall making the only 3-pointer, but they made some big ones late in the game. The Tigers are 2-0 and will play Davidson, who beat Maryland today, in the Asheville Championship on Sunday at 3:00 on ESPN2.
