Evans starts fast behind great team chemistry

Evans may feature two transfers on the perimeter, but coach Kevin Kenny's team wasted no time finding chemistry in its first week of action as the Knights improved to 3-0 with a 60-52 win at home in Saturday's tip-off tournament.

Sophomore Serron Spann made all the right plays Saturday, including this
three that put the Knights ahead 58-52 with less than 2 minutes remaining.

Pure shooters like Chris Stone, the senior transfer who led Evans with 16 points, including 5 three pointers, need the ball in rhythm. Sophomore Serron Spann, who earned valuable playing time as a freshman, found Stone with an on time and on target pass as he spotted up on the left wing for a three that extended Evans's lead to 44-34.

Chris Stone has made 5 threes in two of Evans's first three game.
The seniortransfer led the Knights with 16 points in Saturday's win.

After Hephzibah answered with a 10-0 run that tied the game, Evans would nail 3 more threes on penetrate-and-kick plays. Austin Snead buried the first from the left corner to put the Knights ahead 47-44. Stone made another to give his team a 52-47 advantage. And Spann delivered the final blow on the left wing to make it 58-52.
