Samardo Samuels  

Game 5 – St. Benedict’s (NJ) vs. Gainesville (FL) – 87 to 32

St. Benedict’s comes into this tournament the new # 1 team in the country.

They proved that the ranking was well deserved as they completely dominated this game from start to finish.

St. Benedict’s used their size to control both ends of the floor. Gainesville did not have an answer for the combo of Samardo Samuels and Greg Echenique who each scored with ease.

Samardo and Greg each had big games with Samardo finishing with 23 points and 6 rebounds in 19 minutes, Greg finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds respectively.

Tamir Jackson had a solid game finishing with 11 points and 4 assists.

Basically it looks like St. Benedict’s is the team to beat for the crown at the City of Palms Classic after day one.
