Paine's Dillingham was nearly perfect Saturday in Paine's win




Seven days after posting 41 points against cross town rival Augusta University, Paine's Denzel Dillingham scored another 40 in a 93-75 win over another Peach Belt opponent, North Georgia.

Paine's Denzel Dillingham scored 40 points in Saturday's win.
Two 40 point outings in a week is impressive enough. And Dillingham's shooting statistics against Augusta (13-20 FG, 5-8 3pt FG, 10-10 FT) were ridiculous. But I still haven't thought of an adjective to describe his hot hand last night. Dillingham made 15 of 17 shots, all but one of his 7 three point attempts, and all 4 of his free throws.

Dillingham has been a consistent 30+ points per game scorer this season. And the Lions played about 70 minutes of lights out basketball between the Augusta University game and a home loss to Lander Tuesday in overtime. So Tuesday's win, Paine's first of the season, is well deserved.

I expect the Lions to do very well in conference play. And I expect more explosions from Dillingham.
