TCU Wins Emerald Coast Title
Nov. 25, 2017
NICEVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jaylen Fisher scored 20 points to lead undefeated TCU to the Emerald Coast Classic championship on Saturday night with an 89-79 victory over St. Bonaventure.
There was plenty of back-and-forth before TCU (6-0) eventually overpowered the scrappy Bonnies (3-2) at Northwest Florida State College.
Williams, who led TCU with 11 rebounds, was named the tournament's most outstanding player.
Izaiah Brockington led the Bonnies with 20 points followed by Matt Mobley with 18, Courtney Stockard with 16 and Ladarien Griffin with 13.
The score was tied four times and the lead changed five times in the first seven minutes. The Horned Frogs then broke a 12-12 tie on a pair of free throws by Ahmed Hamdy and maintained a lead that ranged from one to eight points before the first half ended with TCU up 39-36.
That pattern repeated in the second half. There were two ties and two lead changes in the first 3:24 of the half before TCU broke a 42-42 tie on a 3-pointer by Bane. This time, the closest the Bonnies could get was three points, while the Frogs expanded their lead to as many as 11.
