JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 29, 2012) – With circumstances limiting the ETSU men’s basketball team’s roster to primarily seven players, the Buccaneers responded by placing four players in double figures en route to a 94-46 thumping of nearby Milligan College in non-conference basketball action Thursday evening at the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center.

All four of those Bucs posted career highs, led by 27 points from redshirt freshman forward Lester Wilson (Knoxville). Meanwhile, sophomore guard Rashawn Rembert (Tampa) netted 16 points, sophomore post John Walton (Memphis) posted 15, and true freshman guard Mario Stramaglia (Birmingham, Ala.) pitched in 14.

“I really like having four guys in double figures, and I like the fact we played well in both halves,” said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow. “I think this team is trying to learn every day, and I think today we got a little bit better. We’ve been dealt a tough hand recently, but I thought the seven guys we were able to put out there tonight played well.”

The Bucs were without the services of junior forward Kinard Gadsden-Gilliard (Georgetown, S.C.), who missed the game while resting his injured left ankle. Meanwhile, even though he started and played 11 minutes, freshman point guard Petey McClain (Mobile, Ala.) sat out the majority of the contest simply to rest as well.

It wasn’t as though the Bucs needed much help on this night.

ETSU dominated every statistical category in the game, shooting 55 percent from the floor and holding Milligan to just 37 percent shooting. Meanwhile, ETSU held a 43-21 advantage on the glass, forced 19 Milligan turnovers, picked up 10 steals and dished out 20 assists.

The Bucs outscored Milligan 44-24 in the paint, 24-9 off turnovers, and 18-6 on second chance points.

In the first half, Milligan took the early lead at 3-0, but from there the Bucs went on a 29-6 run to basically put the game on auto pilot. After leading 48-20 at the break, ETSU produced a 14-0 burst midway through the second half to build their lead to 74-30 and cruised the rest of the way.

For Milligan, Tyler DeVault reached double figures with 10 points to lead the way for the Buffs.

The Bucs will return to action Wednesday, Dec. 5, on the road at James Madison. Tip is set for 7 p.m. For more on ETSU men’s basketball throughout the 2012-13 season, visit and click on the men’s hoops link.
